My workspace


Some of you have asked what I actually do at work. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to write up a series of wee posts about where I work and what I do. Unfortunately, I normally can’t discuss what I’m working on – which is a shame because I’m working on some interesting stuff!

The Office

Devious Desk - please do not feed the wires

The Desk

Most of the action at Devious Solutions goes on at this neat desk. The set up is inspired by “hot desking” allowing the Technomages to easily connect the right equipment and move between designing, developing and keeping an eye on our current clients and solutions (the chair is pretty comfortable too).

The office IT infrastructure also falls under the responsibility of the Technomages and is just half spin away by office chair.

The Devious Server Cabinet - More wires. I think they're breeding...

“Server Cabinet”

While it may not look impressive, the server performs its tasks diligently . Above the server, we keep the monitoring equipment for our long-term tests, so they are always close at hand.

There is also a small cluster of computers under the desk that are used for testing. They are normally utilised for large volume processing which is particularly useful when we test code optimisation on a range of different platforms. To avoid bumped heads and sore knees, the Technomages keep these computers connected to the network where they can be logged into and controlled remotely from the desk area.

Devious Cluster - did see you something move back there?

Underdesk Cluster

Due to the combination of the set up and comfortable chair, sometimes the Technomages find their colleagues stealing their office space, so it can’t be all that bad can it?
