BWBacon hits LeanUX Denver

BWBacon's booth at LeanUX Denver

We had such a great time at LeanUX Denver last week meeting a ton of great new people and catching up with old friends. Thank you to everyone who stopped by our table to chat with us and find out about some of our UX/UI positions—Even if you were just swinging by to pick up some of our gourmet chocolate covered bacon.

It was a superb event! We loved the excitement and energy of everyone involved. There were fantastic companies, phenomenal workshop leaders & speakers, and plenty of talented folks interested in learning more about LeanUX. Attendees included people from all over the globe: everyone from Boston to New Zealand, and yet, it was still an intimate enough event for everyone to be able to get to know each other….

I was even lucky enough to attend two of the half-day workshops on Wednesday and can personally attest to how informative and fun they were.

We look forward to attending this event again. Great job to all the people who worked on making this event a success! We are glad we could help through sponsorship. See you all next year!

The Bacon Team!

At long last the BWBacon sign is up on Battery 621! We were so excited, we just had to take some pictures…

Who wouldn’t want to work with us?

Ta-Da!

So, if you’re ever on the corner of 6th & Kalamath, you’ll have to drop in and visit us!

Dave and Leah at Blacktie Colorado

October 17, 2011 Leave a comment

Last Tuesday Dave and Leah attended one of Blacktie Colorado‘s Biennial Event honoring all of Blacktie’s past “Have You Met…?” local philanthropists, including Dave himself (click here to read his article)! The keynote speaker this year was Beth Klein, a lawyer and major philanthropist native to Colorado. Beth Klein and her husband have founded “Children’s Angels,” an organization to protect abused children who are involved in the court system. More recently she has been working with Transitions Global to rescue trafficked children and bring them to safe havens.

Dave and Leah both had a great time at the event, even if it was very sad to hear some of the stories Klein told about her experiences working with the organizations she supports:

Dave talks about “Making a Difference”

Making a Difference presentation screen shot

Pictures from Dave's presentation at Lone Tree Elementary about "Making a Difference"

Dave and I are back at work after a very special day at Lone Tree Elementary talking to a group of about 500 kids about Making a Difference. Dave was the opening presentation for Lone Tree’s Making a Difference Mondays. I know we had just as much fun as the kids and left energized!

A few weeks ago Dave Bacon was asked to speak to Lone Tree Elementary about his work on the board of directors for the Playing for Change Foundation and the O’Brien School for the Maassai. Dave gave an awesome interactive presentation and getting all the kids excited about how they could make a difference too. He spoke to kindergarten through sixth grade and both groups thoroughly enjoyed themselves and had a lot of great questions!

Here’s a short video of the first group (Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd graders) clapping to the beat (well…sort of) to Playing for Change’s Stand By Me cover:

So adorable!!

BWBacon Goes To 11

Quality can be an esoteric thing.  Sometimes you simply can’t quantify it or put into words.   However, as a recent re-viewing of a perennial favorite film reminded me, sometimes you can.

At BWBacon we go the distance for our clients and customers, to become indispensable partners in their growth and success.  We’re faster, more efficient, timelier, more intuitive, knowledgeable and respectful, and just a hell of a lot more fun than a lot of our industry counterparts.  We do things differently, in work as in life.  Or, as Spinal Tap’s Nigel Tufnel put it, while some folks just try to make 10 louder, our “numbers all go to 11, right across the board.”

BWBacon Young Recruiter Program

Today we piloted our cutting-edge, industry-leading Young Recruiter program.  Shown here, our young recruiter-in-training (my very lovely 15 month-old niece, Nehema), read up on technology trends while under the watchful tutelage of Dave.

Our cold-calling module was a little bit bumpy, but by the end of the day Nehema had an expert command of the terms “Ruby on Rails” and “Regression Testing.”  Plus, who needs real skills when you’ve got a face like that?

Some call it babysitting; we call it anticipatory competency-development.

Introducing the Bacon Food Truck

 

Maybe the west coast is the best coast?  The food truck craze that has quite literally been swiffering the nation may have reached its greasy pinnacle.  The Bacon Bacon Truck opened up truck this week in San Francisco (SOMA), offering passersby bacon-infused goodness in many a delicious form.  They’re also offering badass t-shirts that assert what we’ve long held as gospel truth:  you had me at Bacon.

We’re holding out hope that the bacon truck will eventually take cues from the rest of the nation by moving to Denver, driving poorly, congesting traffic and never leaving. In the meantime, we continue to hold down the proverbial bacon fort here in Denver, representing bacon interests of all types, the most clear and present being our interest in finding the best and brightest web, software, mobile and interactive development and design talent in Colorado.  Contact us if we had you at bacon.
