Spring 2020

Following on from our last update, we are continuing to monitor the situation regarding Covid-19 and are making on-going adjustments to our business strategy. Notwithstanding, our team of experienced software and hardware engineers are continuing to work closely with our clients to deliver projects on time and to schedule. For project enquiries, do get in touch with our Business Development Director, Jon Older, who will be happy to talk through your requirements. If you have a proof of concept or bespoke edge computing, our offer of a free initial consultation also extends to these types of enquiries.


Despite these difficult times, new business developments include supporting one of our clients to develop their solution to help GPs with remote diagnosis, which will transform the delivery of primary healthcare. We're also delighted to be re-engaging a previous client to support them with further developing their Continuous Integration environment. CI is one of our areas of expertise, built on many years of embedded CI experience.

Continuous Integration

If you’re new to CI, our Engineering Director, Andy Culmer, has written a blog on an 'CI Essentials - What you need to know' or you may be interested in our Continuous Integration Interest Group, which is aimed at engineers interested in sharing knowledge in this area. Click the button below to join the group.



As part of our Events programme, where we look to facilitate ongoing development of engineering best practices with the community, we're evaluating the possibility of moving the planned Linux forum and next CI Workshop to online formats. If you would like to be kept informed on our next CI event, please get in touch or sign up to our CI group.

Regarding other events: Feabhas, a software training provider in embedded systems, was due to deliver an Agile for embedded software conference last month. ITDev had been invited to present as well as sponsor. The conference has been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis and we're now discussing the possibility of an online version of this conference with Feabhas. If this would be of interest to you, do contact us.


In terms of recruitment, we're delighted to announce the appointment of George, as our Junior Systems Administrator. George was appointed earlier this year and her main role is to support our in-house IT infrastructure and users as well as assist on related client projects.

ITDev stand at the ECS Careers Fair 2020


We had a great day at the ECS Careers Fair (our thanks to Joyce and her team for delivering such a well organised day), where we met some fantastic candidates for our internships and graduate recruitment roles. One of our previous summer interns, Oisin, attended the event as well as Norbert, a graduate engineeer. Both Oisin and Norbert did an excellent job at engaging with students and running our interactive demonstrations. This included the 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' demo which Norbert developed as part of his learning on Vitis AI.

Given the current situation we've paused our recruitment process. However, we'll be staying in touch with interested candidates and look forward to re-launching our recruitment drive in due course.

On a final 'good news' note, Steven, one of our senior software engineers, celebrated his five year anniversary with ITDev last year. As mentioned in our anniversary article, Steven chose to share his five year service award with the whole office. This involved a visit to one of our local breweries where we took part in a beer tasting session followed by a delicious meal and a personal thank you to Steven from the Directors.
