We’re delighted to announce that Ixis apprentice Josh Woods won the Little Chip Placement / Apprentice Award at last week’s Big Chip Awards in Manchester.
Josh had been shortlisted for his software development project “Samurai”, which he completed during his apprenticeship with the company.
The “Samurai” project involved an application developed by Josh that has helped to automate elements of the process associated with managing the Drupal security updates across the range of sites Ixis supports.
Instead of taking a significant amount of support team resource, the process of securing sites now takes one person less than half the time, allowing for greater focus on other elements of the support function.
Josh has brought a great amount of innovation and forward thinking to this role at Ixis.
"The development work behind the “Samurai” project has had a significant impact on our business and in turn, the service we are able to deliver to our clients and so it’s fantastic to see this recognised externally too." Mike Carter - Director at Ixis
"It’s great to be able to combine learning with practical implementations, such as the software development associated with the “Samurai” application." Joshua Stevenson-Woods - Developer at Ixis
