We’re pretty fond of coffee at Ninja Software. Coffee culture plays a big role here. We love our automatic coffee machine – we congregate around it in the mornings and it’s usually the first step to an impromptu meeting.
The stereotype is true: programmers love coffee. They love it so much that one of the most famous languages was named after it.
Coffee is a wonderful beverage:
It Increases memory and cognitive ability
Some studies have shown that caffeine may enhance memory performance and cognitive ability. There’s even some evidence that it might delay the onset of Alzheimer’s!Source
It’s a Source of antioxidants
Studies have shown that coffee is one of the largest sources of antioxidants in the human diet. It’s also linked to a reduced risk in many diseases.Source
It Smells amazing
Nothing beats the aroma of a freshly brewed coffee. It might even help you sell your home!
Coffee and Data
We love coffee, and we love data. So tracking our coffee drinking is an extension and a fun use of our abilities. See our footer for our live coffee statistics.
Our coffee tracking operation has been in place since the very beginning of Ninja Software and was the first function for NinjaBot, our Automated Operations Bot. It started as a simple command on our ChatOps system.
Using our ChatOps service, we can monitor every coffee we drink.
Our coffee tracking service is the first thing our new hires cut their teeth on. It’s a fun project that allows new developers to learn the Ninja Software Way(tm).
Technically, this is the first production system they work on, and the pressure can sometimes be very real…
With every new developer, our coffee tracking operation gets more and more sophisticated. Can’t wait to see what it looks like next year. I’m hoping for automated facial recognition and some kind of coffee delivery system Rube Goldberg device.
Did you know that your tedious business processes can be automated and tracked? We love solutions that make life easier and involve mountains of data.
