Friday, July 27 marked Brendan McLoughlin’s final day at Bocoup. Brendan (better known around the web as “bmac”) joined us way back in 2013, so there’s a lot to say about his contribution to our company. The most important thing to know about Brendan’s style (and probably the first thing you’d notice when working with […]

On June 13, operations screeched to a halt here at Bocoup. The phones were ringing, but we didn’t answer them. Packages delivered to our door went ignored. Chicken eggs piled up. All hands were on keyboards, collaborating on the web-platform-tests project. We’ve been participating in WPT for years, largely in collaboration with the Chromium, Gecko […]

I’m excited to share that our technical partnerships team has developed a deeper focus on graphics and interactive application programming, a focus area which we are affectionately calling Gaia. As of today, Technical Partnerships is now Graphics and Interactive Applications (Gaia for short). In many ways this is a reflection of what this team has […]

Can you tell me what EBITDA stands for? No? Okay, well, how many varieties of sea slugs can you name? None?! Clearly, you have never worked with Jasmin Jata. She taught us all this and more over the past 3 years. Although Jasmin joined us with a good deal of experience under her belt, she […]

Our pal Matt Surabian (a.k.a. “Scorpion”) has left Bocoup to pursue his interests in the Go programming language and technical operations. In light of this bittersweet news, we found ourselves reflecting on the time we’ve shared since he joined us. Matt’s been an excellent consultant. From a technical standpoint, he’s consistently demonstrated chops in web […]

To the best of our knowledge, Laura Powell is the only person to lie to us while interviewing. She shared a tall tale about an unfortunate series of events during a wedding, and she challenged us to spot the fib. While deception was not a tool she would employ again, her knack for storytelling was […]

We’re announcing some big changes to our teams and a new focus area for Bocoup. First, we have made the difficult decision to close our design and data visualization services in order to plant deeper roots as an open web engineering company. As a result, many of our teammates have moved on to pursue other […]
