BendyConf: The Internet Is Your New Database

In his talk The Internet Is Your New Database, Will laid bare the ideas behind the semantic web. While usually shrouded in misunderstanding, the semantic web has lots of cool ideas packed in it.

ON AN ON B-Sides: Ghosts

It’s a foggy week here in Madison, folks. We’re all about matching our music to our mood, which meant it was perfect that Jonk Music posted this video of Ghosts from last month’s B-Sides with ON AN ON. No matter the weather where you are, take a listen...

B-Sides: ON AN ON

Chicago-based ON AN ON was named the number one band to see at SXSW 2013 by Time magazine. We couldn’t make it to Austin to verify that ourselves, but we’ve been playing them over the communal Bendywaves this past week in anticipation for their appearance...

No one knows everything, and that’s okay

Programming Pilgrimage

Growth day happenings – Friday the 13th

(This is the first of a recurring series describing our work during most, if not all, growth days at Bendyworks. Note that we won’t do growth day on Friday the 20th, because it’s UXMad.)

What’s a “Growth Day”?

Bendyworks invests in our developers...

My Bendyworks Apprenticeship

I started at Bendyworks on July 18, 2011 as an apprentice. On my first day, Stephen Anderson and I dove right into pressing client work. We always pair program at Bendyworks so I was never “stuck” or “lost.” However, Bendyworks prides itself on using...
