SonarSource turned six in November and with another year over, it was time to reflect on the past year as well as to celebrate. So in January, we all gathered in Megève to have our bi-annual Grand Raout as well as the celebration for SonarSource turning school-age!
Friday was spent working hard and playing hard. Different teams presented on the progress and key points of last year as well as the vision and goals for the upcoming year. The activity planned for Friday afternoon took everyone by surprise as we enjoyed the adrenaline rush of ice driving and received helpful tips on how to improve our driving habits.
The key message for the future, emphasized by CEO Olivier Gaudin was never to stop innovating. 6 years ago when SonarSource was founded, innovation was the driving force. Olivier expressed his gratitude and appreciation for the team’s hard work and dedication and reminded all that just like in ice driving, in business we have to take risks to keep going fast and achieve exceptional results. He assured us that as a team, SonarSource will be able to accommodate the risks that are needed for future progression and improvements that benefit the software development market.
After the official part, SonarSourcers’ families joined in on the fun and we all spent a wonderful weekend together in the mountains skiing, snowshoeing, playing in the snow and simply relaxing in a beautiful cozy setting that was blessed, just as on request, with 20 cm of fresh snow!
