Crete: Our Office For The Week

This year we made our adventure to move our office for a week to Crete. Crete is the largest island in Greece and is located in the southern Aegean. It has more than 600,000 inhabitants and 8,336 km². It was in Crete that the Minoan Civilization flourished, a civilization that is considered the oldest on record in Europe.


The Challenge

Changing the office is always a big challenge. This time we chose to make two changes, first to the left part of the island in Chania, and then to the right part of the island in Elounda. Work, collaborate, having fun, and getting to know the island were our plans.


The Adventure

The adventure began with a mishap, the plane was 3 hours delayed in Porto, which made us lose the connection we had in Barcelona to Chania. So the strikes and hassles at the airport meant that we arrived at our destination a day late. It was Saturday, so it did not affect customers, but we had lost a whole day of fun.

We came to Chania on Saturday night. On Sunday we prepared everything to start on Monday without interrupting the work, and so it was …. We loved Chania so much that later during our stay in Eolunda we went back there. Chania is really beautiful, very characteristic, and is an hour from the beach of Elafonisi, and the beach of the Bay of Balos, two places not to be missed.

During the week we moved our office again from Chania to Elounda, which was a three hour drive. The change didn’t go very well, since the long drive meant we left some tasks to do for the next day …. After arriving, we prepared everything, answered some emails, and went to dinner.

Beautiful scenery, spectacular beaches, and good food defined our stay. Changing the office to a different place each year is always an experience to repeat!


What Next?

We have already started voting for the next destination, the requirements remain the same: a safe place, with internet connection, and good places to eat.

Software Factory: Developing A Trading Platform From Scratch!

Software Factory: Developing A Trading Platform From Scratch


The sharing economy model is an actual trend, with several well known providers pushing it. Such a model requires the existence of a trading platform, that has to be, at the same time, scalable, secure, and reliable. A must have functionality of any trading platform is the one that tries to maximise the outcomes of the people that are sharing and the ones that are looking for resources. Without that maximising match functionality, sellers and buyers (or lenders and borrowers) will be lost in a huge blue ocean of possibilities.

Here at Emeteclass we are helping one of our clients to grow, by developing a trading platform from scratch, totally focused on the client’s needs. The application includes the resources enrolment process, the request definition and a smart algorithm that matches the requests with the offered resources, while maximising the utilisation of the resources.

As usual, we are following an Agile methodology – Scrum – to guarantee the involvement of the interested stakeholders since the initial stages. Such an approach is fundamental to have a user-centric application that simplifies and optimizes the entire process.


We offer a full-cycle custom software development, from requirements elicitation to product design and development, quality assurance testing and deployment. We follow an offshore development team paradigm while adapt to customer’s own working standards. We have developed successful applications and services for a huge range of industries.

T1FC Is A Great Team Building Activity!

The 1st Floor Challenge (T1FC), Lisbon 2015.12.12


I really enjoyed T1FC! It was a great team building activity because it forced us to discuss ideas as a team, split tasks and roles, working together for a goal.

My favourite topics were the time and risk management, as I believe these might be some of the most important to ensure the security of your project.

I had no expectations for this event and it really surprised me a lot! It was funny yet informative and the practical approach really helps to understand the needs and the techniques to solve them.

I had a wonderful time through all of it and would definitely recommend it to anyone, regardless of their background or interest.
