When you're running a business, things don't always go according to plan. People get fired, get sick, or go on maternity leave or vacation. On a more positive note, you might be experiencing rapid growth thanks to a new client asking for a big order. Any of these scenarios can leave you with a sudden, immediate need to temporarily cover a position or two.
That deadline you've been dreading is just around the corner, or you've just found a security flaw that needs to get fixed right away. Your employees are already up to their ears in work, but you just need that extra bit of manpower to tackle this surprise project. Once you've installed the patches, fixed the bugs or implemented the changes, you won't have any more need to keep someone around.
Everyone who runs their own small or medium-sized business dreams of achieving real, sustainable growth.
With your employees going on vacation, having babies, getting sick or leaving the company, things are beginning to pile up and you aren't finishing the jobs you need. What's more, you don't have enough staff who are cross-trained to fill in the gaps.

Happy Monday! It's an exciting day here at SYDCON. We are finally ready to launch our new website.
In January 2017 SYDCON was invited to attend the GEMS conference held at a local D155 high school, Prairie Ridge. The conference was held in order to excite and expose middle school girls to different opportunities in STEM. SYDCON was asked to teach a brief 20-minute session about software development. Naturally, we chose to focus our session around HTML and taught the young programmers the basics of how to create a simple static website. Below is the handout we created to pass out to the students.
Computer Science Education. We’ve discussed the importance of it here on the blog before. We have also discussed the importance of attracting more girls and women to the field. As you may have read here before, SYDCON is a proud sponsor of school district 47 & 155, specifically for the GEMS (Girls in Engineering, Math & Science) program. I am honored to be a mentor within the program.
