In October Gleb Agafonov and Julia Agafonova visited Turkey within their honeymoon. One of their bright memories is flying the balloon in Kapadokiya.

 

Better together!

To be a good team, we need to be always “charged”. That is why Singularis Lab put much attention to the competitions. One of this competitions was the contest for programming the gaming strategies - Code Game Challenge (CGC). The participants needed to chose the gaming unite, create a behavior strategy for him and send him to battle.

The platform used in the competition was made by our engineers, Anatoly Kryzhanovsky and Lev Borodin. Only one unite led by Nikita Dmitriev could win the battle.

In summer we started live fights. Or nearly live fights. Thanks to Michael Popitich, Roman Gushin and Irina Maloletkova for the opportunity to shoot within their birthday parties! No harm done:)

 

The teams couldn’t wait to rematch! So they got this chance! Not playing lasertag or just fight. We celebrated the programmer day enjoying “Ford Boyard” quest.
