Denver Beer Tasting: Round 1

Denver Beer Tasting: Round 1

DMC Denver is currently expanding into some additional office space, with an expected completion in early 2017. We're excited to acquire two new conference rooms in the process. Knowing the new rooms will follow our current theme of being named after Colorado breweries (Great Divide and Renegade are our current conference rooms), DMC Denver saw this as an opportunity to try some local brews during the naming process. We decided the best way to determine these new names would be to pit 3...

Sporting Clays Activity Fund Event

Some members of the DMC Denver team recently capitalized on the Activity Fund to take a trip out to Colorado Clays Shooting Park for a round of sporting clays. The sporting clays course at Colorado Clays features 15 shooting stations. Each station is equipped with two clay target throwers. The throwers are positioned differently at all of the stations, so each one presents a unique challenge. Check out our video highlights! How It Works There are 50 pairs of targets between all...

DMC Denver Celebrates Oktoberfest

DMC Denver Celebrates Oktoberfest

DMC Denver held an Oktoberfest party on September 22, 2016. The Rocky Mountains offered a backdrop comparable to any mountain view in Munich, Germany where so many Oktoberfest revelers were recently participating in their own celebration.  Munich may have just finished their 183rd Oktoberfest, and we’ve had a few of our own, but this year DMC used the opportunity to continue celebrating our 20th Anniversary. It was a wonderful night with lots of beer, delicious food, and ...

Pool Vision Application

Pool Vision Application

Every DMC office has at least one table sport at its heart. For Denver, this game is pool. So on FedEx Day 2016 Otto, Tyler, and I set out to automate our office Spencer Marston pool table. What does this look like you may ask? Our goal was to automatically detect what pool balls remain on the table. So during our 3-way, 5-way, or even 7-way cut throat games we don't have to worry about what balls are sunk and what balls are not.   Preparation was key for this project. We sel...

FedEx Day 2016

FedEx Day 2016

This May marked the 6th annual FedEx Day! All five of our offices participated in this year’s event. This special day allows our employees to dedicate an entire day to a project of their choosing that they normally would not have time for. This year, projects ranged from planting a garden on the Chicago office’s rooftop patio to making many different types of applications. Preparation for FedEx Day takes a lot of time. Each employee brainstorms what they want to do and gathers the...

DMSki 2016: Our Biggest Ski Trip Yet

DMSki 2016: Our Biggest Ski Trip Yet

Since 2011, we have made it a tradition to take an annual ski trip out west to Colorado. This year, since the trip was so popular, we have decided to introduce the ski trip as our first Yearly Office Event (YOE). The YOE grew out of DMSki, which attracts employees from across our offices. It's a great opportunity to bond and promote OneDMC, so we decided to create a similar yearly event in each of our locations. We had a great time on our 2016 DMSki trip. Day 1: After landing in sunny ...

DMC Hosts Siemens and CRUM at the Rockies' Opening Day

In early April, the Colorado Rockies started off their season with an exciting game against the Padres. Last year, DMC celebrated their opening of the Denver office at the season opener for the Colorado Rockies. It has been an exciting year since then, so we felt another opening day celeration was fitting.  This year, DMC Denver hosted Siemens and CRUM Electric Supply at the game for a fun-filled day. We started off the day by meeting at the Denver office for some food a...

DMC Denver's Poker Night

DMC Denver's Poker Night

Every DMC office loves poker. Around this time last year, I was still working in the Chicago office, where we held one of our infamous Friday night poker tournaments. Within the last year, I answered the call of the mountains and moved out to Colorado to join our Denver office. Now, the poker tradition lives on through DMC Denver. We held our very first poker tournament on a Friday night, starting the Texas Hold 'Em tournament just as the sun was setting over the city. With 10 people...

OneDMC: Where Bigger Meets Better
Frank Riordan

OneDMC: Where Bigger Meets Better

In 2015, DMC opened new offices in Houston, Texas, and New York City, expanding our team from three to five locations. Also in 2015, we paid two random people to write and perform rap songs about us. These seemingly unrelated events have an important common thread: OneDMC. So what does "OneDMC" mean? The term originates from first-time visitors to our offices, who love to ask us if we have any relation to the rap group Run DMC. The idea has really grown on us, though, so the term...

DMC Denver at Nitro Circus

Most of the world tends to ignore billboards, but sometimes you see an ad so intriguing, you just have to go home and look it up. Nitro Circus was one of those billboards. With a giant display right by DMC's Denver office, it was hard for us to ignore the temptation to check it out. So… we did!  We decided the show was a must-see, and used the DMC Activity Fund back in November to go check out the Nitro Circus live. If you've never heard of it, Nitro Circus is an extreme s...

DMCFilms Denver Update

With the release of the new Star Wars film right around the corner, Denver decided to film a themed video for our December update. I wanted it to be a parody video: Lucasfilm™ logo, scrolling text, the works (and, of course, to feature Blue, the horse from Denver International Airport). Everyone in the office was involved in the film in some capacity, so it really helped advance the OneDMC initiative. Enjoy!

DMC Denver Takes On Clear Creek Canyon

Whether we're on hiking trails, snowshoeing through giant drifts of powder, or racing down mountain slopes on skis, having an active lifestyle at the Denver office is easy. Since DMC opened up the Denver office a little over a year ago, we've been having a lot of fun with rock climbing indoors, building up our climbing skills at local places throughout the Winter and Spring. We had actually hoped to do some outdoor climbing for our Spring 2015 All Day Company Meeting, but ended up doing ...

1-Up with DMC Denver

The Denver office finally tried out the 1-Up Arcade Bar in downtown Denver. I say finally because 1-Up is located exactly 354 feet from the entrance of our building (according to Google Maps). Despite the fact that DMC Denver officially opened in April 2015 (and has been occupied by DMC engineers for even longer), our group had yet to meander over to 1-UP for some brews and old-school gaming. The DMC Chicago office has hit up a beercade on more than one occasion, even th...

WinCC OA Presentation at the Rocky Mountain Oil and Gas Conference

I recently had the pleasure of presenting at the Siemens Rocky Mountain Oil and Gas Conference in Denver. This was Siemens' first year holding the conference in Denver and there was an enthusiastic response of over 120 attendees.  The goal of the day-long event on July 28 was to promote discovery and discussion around the Oil and Gas industry's emerging automation and controls trends. All the presentations were well attended, offering a great opportunity to network in the area an...

DMC Denver Opening Day, Opening Day

DMC Denver celebrated its grand opening in conjunction with the Rockies’ Opening Day at Coors Field for an Opening Day, Opening Day party that proved a huge success. We opened our DMC Denver office with a group of four engineers from Chicago back in August of 2014. Less than a year later, we’ve already doubled in size, finished decking out our new office with art, a pool table and new furniture, and have continued developing our client and customer relationships since moving to...

DMC Denver Reads Literature: Part Two

DMC Denver Reads Literature: Part Two

DMC Denver hosted its second “DMC Reads Literature” book club this past week at Little India in downtown Denver. Our choice for this session was The Martian, a current best-seller written by mechanical engineer, Andy Weir. I had originally read the book a few months prior and thought the engineers at DMC would love it because it was rich in technical content. One of the reasons the book is gaining so much acclaim is because all of Weir’s scenarios are plausible, which if you ar...

At DMC Denver we do our best to use up as much of our activity fund for dynamic, heart rate raising fun. With everything from skiing to hiking to snowshoeing, we love to take advantage of all that Denver has to offer.  This week we frequented some of the guys’ favorite indoor climbing gym, Thrillseekers. It was my and Tim’s first time climbing with the DMC crew and my first time climbing since 7th grade. We got on the wall immediately though, and within the first hour Ti...
