Remembering Our Mentors

4 Sep 2013

Having our recent 14 year old intern, James, got us thinking about the people our team looked up to in the early stages. I asked some of the folks here in the studio to think a little bit about the people who were inspirations and guides to them throughout their lives and/or careers.

Get trained

26 Aug 2013

We got CPR training today at the Planet Argon studio. A few folks on the team had already done this, but it’s always good to get a refresher course. Do yourself a favor and schedule a training today.

2013 Fall Fashion

Our friends over at Blue Box (awesome Ruby on Rails hosting) sent a few of us some nice jackets. We’re hoping they’ll include us in their 2013 Fall Fashion catalog.

Argon Trail

On April 28th, 2013… we rented a bus to take nearly 50 Ruby on Rails developers who traveled to Portland for RailsConf 2013 on a hike. Here is a group shot of nearly everyone.

We hope you had as much of a blast as we did!

Here are a bunch of photos I took…

Planet Argon Gets an Intern!

8 Apr 2013

Hey! My name is Corinne and I’m excited to introduce myself as Planet Argon’s first intern! I’m currently a student studying art, graphic and web design at Portland State University. I was lucky enough to land an intern position here at Planet Argon.

A large part of my education has been from studying resources on the web. And by “studying” I mean for four or five months I locked myself in my apartment and tried to learn as much as I could about web design and development.

So, as you can imagine, after a while this got pretty lonely. The amount of information out there was daunting. I decided to put my new skills to use and launched a portfolio site in hopes I’d be able to land an internship where I could learn around professionals.

The 2012 Year in Review

16 Jan 2013

Every year, Planet Argon releases a retrospective compiling the past year’s events; this includes business accomplishments like app launches, and personal milestones like marriage and travels. A couple months ago, I, Jack Bouba, was tasked with getting the ball rolling for the 2012 Year in Review. I felt this was right up my alley because (1) I love being in charge and (2) I’ve been rolling balls since childhood.

RIP Juan (and Skinny Pete)

16 Nov 2012

Juan was one of our closest friends. He was an important figure across the past three studio locations we’ve resided. Sadly, he’s no more.

While alive, Juan would never have agreed to allow us to share such an intimate moment with the public… but this is how we’ll always remember him. On his death bed, he whispered, “Tell them. No. Show them. Show them what I did. Let them learn from my mistakes.”

We invite you to meet all of our green friends.

Good bye, Juan. :*(

Foosball gets spooky

Happy Halloween, boys and ghouls! (I bet you never heard that one before) Go eat lots of candy, and by all means accept baked goods from strangers.

How to Design a Company Picnic T-shirt

9 Oct 2012

Just a few weeks ago, we celebrated our 2012 summer picnic at lovely Irving Park. Now, as the mercury drops and the giraffe-fur coats come out of their cardboard boxes with puffs of toxic mothball dust, we ease into our creaking rocking chairs, reflections of the waning summer dancing in our minds like so many whistling embers leaping from the nearby hearth. “Why didn’t I go to the river more often, goddammit?” we contemplate; or, “I squandered this whole summer sitting at my desk, eating cookies, listening to the sound of my muscles atrophying, and now it’s dark when I wake up and where did I put my raincoat?” Oh, tut-tut, you silly goose! It’s only October- the weather’s still gorgeous and the leaves in your backyard make such a delightful crunching sound.
