DMC Conquers Puzzah! Escape Rooms

DMC Conquers Puzzah! Escape Rooms

What happens when a bunch of people who solve problems, aka puzzles, for a living go to an escape room? For my welcome party, we decided to find out! After pizza and happy hour at the office, the DMC Denver crew walked over to Puzzah! Escape Rooms to put our puzzle solving skills to the test. When we arrived, we split into three groups, and the Puzzah! staff read us the rules of the game: no unplugging wires, breaking down doors, or forcibly removing things from the walls. All the u...

Employees Lead Company Improvements During FedEx Day 2018

DMC recently took a break from day-to-day tasks to participate in one of our favorite company traditions, FedEx Day. Routine work on hold, our offices still brimmed with life and projects while everyone worked on whatever they wanted.  FedEx Day is always an opportunity for fun, learning, and collaboration, with only two catches: the project must in some way help to improve the company, and it must be deliverable by the end of the day. This year, our employees took on everything ...

DMSki Denver: The Gang Goes Skiing

This March, I took part in a long weekend of snow and smarts with some of DMC’s finest brains. Each DMC office is empowered to plan a yearly fun event and invite everyone in the company. We’ve climbed mountains, floated down rivers, and ran away to Martha’s Vineyard. DMC's Denver office plans an annual ski trip, nicknamed DMSki. DMC helps foot part of the bill and even lets us invite someone who doesn’t work for DMC to come along as a guest! We call these events YO...

DMC Denver Experiences the Avalanche

DMC Denver Experiences the Avalanche

Don’t worry. When I say Avalanche, I mean the Colorado Avalanche hockey team, not a snow slide. Our hockey team took on the Winnipeg Jets, and the game was spectacular. A group of us attended together using DMC Denver's activity fund, a monthly fund that employees can access to plan fun events to hang out and bond.  After a slow start to the game, Colorado scored two goals in the 2nd period only to have Winnipeg tie up the game in the 3rd period and send the game to overtime. ...

Cooking Up New Ideas (and BBQ) at DMC's FedEx Day

DMC recently held another one of our favorite company-wide traditions... FedEx Day! On FedEx Day, everyone in the company takes a break from their day-to-day tasks and works on a project that they think will improve DMC. It's a great opportunity to collaborate with people we don't normally work with, develop new skills, and have fun. It's called a FedEx Day because the planned project must be delivered by the end of the day. With five offices and more employees than ever, the...

How to Create an Automated Weather Display with Weather2 and BeagleBone

DMC Denver has been enjoying another great ski season. Every year, we find ourselves frequently checking weather forecasts and snow reports to track how much snow our favorite mountains are getting. So during a recent FedEx Day, I decided to automate a system for acquiring and displaying this data on a desktop LCD! On FedEx Day, everyone works on a project that interests them that they think will improve DMC which must absolutely, positively be delivered by the end of the day...

DMSki 2017: Adventures on the Slopes

DMSki, an annual ski trip that DMCers have been making to Colorado since 2011, was Denver’s Yearly Office Event (YOE) again this year. The YOE is an opportunity for DMC employees to meet near one of DMC's five locations for a fun trip planned by employees in that office. What started as an awesome time has grown into an even more awesome time with more and more DMC employees joining each year! If you want to check out the fun we had in years past, you can read about past...

DMC recently held our 7th FedEx Day across all offices. On FedEx Day, everyone in the company works on a project that interests them and that they think will improve DMC.

Denver Beer Tasting: Round 1

It wasn't too long ago that DMC Denver celebrated Opening Day, and now it is expanding into additional office space, with an expected completion in early 2017. We're excited to gain 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. What better way...

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 ...

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

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

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

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...
