We believe it’s both important and beneficial, not only to ourselves but to others as well, to have very open, candid discussions about technology.
Oxford, MS (PRWEB) December 03, 2013
At mortgage technology company FNC Inc., conference room conversations lead to knowledge and knowledge to solutions. Now, FNC is taking the conference room online and inviting readers of its new blog to join the conversation.
The blog, “Software Unwound,” which premiered online last week, was developed to showcase how FNC uses cutting-edge technology to deliver innovative solutions to the $9 trillion real estate mortgage industry.
“We believe it’s both important and beneficial, not only to ourselves but to others as well, to have very open, candid discussions about technology,” said John Marsalis, director of software development at FNC. “We want to talk about what we’ve learned, challenges we’re facing, the things we love, and the things we can improve within the realm of technology.”
Marsalis also said he hopes the blog will help debunk stereotypes associated with technology in the financial sector. Gone are the days of dusty mainframes; black terminal screens with green text; and browsers that make Netscape Navigator feel modern.
“We are primarily a Microsoft shop, but at the heart of it all, we’re about providing real value to both businesses and individuals, and doing so with cutting-edge, fun, creative uses of state-of-the-art technology,” Marsalis said.
Recent blog posts discuss load distribution and asynchronous communication with RabbitMQ; an FNC investigation into the CQRS pattern; and The Forge, a 23-hour hackathon designed to encourage innovation.
“Obviously, Software Unwound is geared toward more tech-savvy folks, but it’s out there for everyone,” Marsalis said. “We want to see it become really interactive in the form of ongoing dialog from many different perspectives; that’s how we grow and it’s what leads to progress.”
