As the beginning of the holiday season, November promises gigantic servings of delicious turkey, pumpkin pie, and endless, bountiful carbs. November is also a month to feel grateful about the goodness in our lives (like Thanksgiving dinner) — and at The Control Group, we’re especially grateful for the members of our team that go the extra mile.
Every month, we like to take a moment to recognize the people that totally rocked. If you’d like to nominate someone on your team, just send a blurb to Human Resources for next month’s installment of People Who Rock!
Nominated by Ronnie Garcia and Tony Lea
Ronnie: Not much can be said about Shiem that isn't already known. Not only is Shiem one of the most passionate and energetic devs I know, but he's also one of the smartest. His breadth of knowledge across a wide variety of technologies and coding languages gives him a diverse toolbelt for solving any problem he comes across, which he does so like a boss. So, what's the best thing about Shiem? He's probably saved every team in the company on at least one occasion. Shiem rocks!
Tony: Shiem doesn't get nominated as often as he should, and that's because many people are too busy getting help from him. There’s a reason that Shiem starts with “S”: he is a sensei, and I am lucky to work with someone who inspires and motivates me to do better. Everything he touches turns to gold. I aspire to be a Shiem one day. Shiem, keep it up.
Nominated by Shiem Edelbrock
Joe is awesome. He needs a crown and a cape at this point. Not only has he hotfixed 3 huge issues this month, but he also helped when we were in over our heads with PCI. I asked him a small question, and he just took the whole thing and owned it all the way to the end. Absolutely amazing.
