Custom Partition Hard Disk Sizes With MDT

Our company recently refresh notebook spec minimum hard disk space from 256GB to 512GB. Deploying notebook using MDT has become challenging because for the notebook with 256GB we maintain whole drive as C without partition. While for the notebook with 512GB, we partition C to 300GB and the remaining to D.

After Googling for while, I found the answer from several tutorials. This requirement can be simply solved by adding a WMI query into task sequence.

A 5,000 Word (AKA 5-photo) Recap of the Image Processing Python Workshop by Women Who Code

Everyone knows about Photoshop but how many knows what goes on behind the scenes? Women Who Code Singapore hosted a 2-part workshop last month at Titansoft, to introduce the basic ins and outs of Image Processing (using computer algorithms to process digital images) using the Python programming language. Part 1 was a class on the theory of image processing, while Part 2’s hands-on workshop gave junior developers a try at picking up a few tricks.

We thought about writing a 500 word recap on the workshop, but decided to go with the other option – what better way to recap a workshop on Image Processing, than with a photo blog post? After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. So cliché but so true. 😉

Immersing Ourselves in Agile

After a full month at Titansoft as interns, we have come to learn more about Titansoft’s Agile culture. So, what is Agile software development?

Waterfall v Agile

Agile is often compared to the traditional Waterfall methodology where a linear approach is taken with software development; each stage is generally finished before the next one can begin. On the contrary, Agile methodology emphasizes the rapid delivery of an application in complete functional components, with a high commitment level from the client throughout the project. With Agile, all tasks are “time-boxed” into phases called “sprints”.

In Titansoft, each sprint lasts a week within which a running list of deliverables planned at the start of the sprint is completed. Deliverables are prioritized according to their value as agreed by the stakeholder and product owner. If all planned tasks for the current sprint cannot be completed in time, work is reprioritized and the information is used for future sprint planning.

Summer Interns 2018!

Bright and early at 9.30am, the 5 of us arrived at Titansoft, ready for our first day of internship. We were welcomed by our friendly HR colleagues, Sky and Jessie, who tapped us in to a quiet office and explained Titansoft’s unique flexi working hours where Titaners get to plan their own work schedule, as long as work gets done!

As interns, we received a brief orientation where we played some ice-breaking games to learn more about each other and Titansoft. For Summer 2018, we have 4 Software Developer (SD) Interns and 1 HR Intern (who says operational role interns are not welcomed in a tech company!)
