Visca Christmas

The whole team got together last December 17th to mark the last day of the year when we were all together before everyone’s holiday and travel plans. We heard of the new EatWith concept and wanted to give it a try. We were not disappointed!

We were welcomed to a central Barcelona apartment with a wonderful rooftop terrace to enjoy an amazing assortment of fusion tapas inspired by chef Ascanio’s Italian heritage and Nuria’s Catalan family.

We enjoyed a tasting menu of more than 15 type of “tapas gourmet” exploring several flavors and culinary techniques, from traditional dishes as homemade “Gazpacho Andaluz” or catalan “Pa amb Tomàquet” (bread with tomato), to modern culinary techniques like molecular cuisine, spherification or culinary foams, with natural and fresh product from the Santa Caterina market as main ingredients.

Here are some photos of the evening:

Birthdays at the Camp Nou

Last October 25th and 26th were Damien and Kristian‘s birthdays and the lucky boys got themselves a ticket to the Barça-Villarreal game (3-0) which took place on Sunday 8th of November. They probably saw one of the best goals of the season, scored by Neymar in the second half after an inspired 180 degrees sombrero.

Geek date

Today our team is where it belongs: PHP Barcelona Conference 2015

It has been one of the most highly anticipated events of the year for web developers in Barcelona and the day has finally come. Great speakers have come from around the world to talk at the PHP Barcelona Conference 2015 on subjects ranging from message-oriented software design to continuous deployment, which are all very relevant to our project. We clearly couldn’t miss it.

Team outing after bêta presentation

Recently we received the visit of (almost) all of our marketing partners (those responsible for the Spanish/LATAM, UK/US, French and Italian markets) and we improvized a little team outing in Gracia.

Below is a photo was taken a bit late in the day after the presentation of the bêta version of the new desktop/mobile versions of Marcadores.com

French futbolin traditions

Not all French traditions are worth exporting, but this one sure is. In foosball games in France, when one of the team loses with a score of zero, they have to perform the not so glorifying act of passing (crawling, really) under the foosball table. On that humid July day after the team lunch, the tradition was introduced for the first time in the Visca Web office. Damien and Raul were the lucky first ones.

Break room upgraded

While the team has always been able to enjoy the great games on Plaça Gal-la Placidia, we thought we would work on an upgrade of our office break room.

An interior decorator (Vanessa Pascual) has helped us transform this space, which now even includes a foosball table 🙂

Here are some images of the several stages of the development:

Last (but not least) piece of the upgrade is an original mural that Javier Cera (arteextra.com), a local artist, has created especially for us. See the video of the making-of and a photo of the final result below.

The Apple Watch has arrived…

After a wait of several weeks and 5 long minutes of almost religious unpacking and unboxing, the Apple Watch has arrived to the Visca Web office. The first words of Damien, the happy new owner: “I thought it would be bigger“.

Spring new recruits

April is a big month for us already, as we have recorded the arrival of 2 new recruits. We trust that each of them will make a significant, positive impact on the team’s mood and, as a consequence, on the advancement of the project 🙂
