  • Slower Cooking, Faster Meals: NetSuite Removing Impediments to Good Nutrition

      In the past year as a SuiteImpact Ambassador, I've had the pleasure of collaborating on quite a few projects for NetSuite's Waterloo office.

  • NetSuite Employees Teach Kids to Code

    This week is Netsuite's Week of Impact, and we have the fortunate opportunity to share some of our programming knowledge with the next generation of coders.  We are doing this with the help of the great folks at Year of Code Waterloo Region, who were super helpful in hooking us up with 6 teachers in the area who were willing to let some wild code-monkeys loose in their classroom for a couple of hours. For our course material, we decided to teach an Introduction to Arduino class.   Read More...
