Spring is here!
The clocks have gone forward and thank goodness for the sunshine! At the time of writing, we are in the midst of the Suez crisis. On this occasion it’s not Nasser, but a stranded cargo ship lodged in the canal. What a reminder to the importance of the crossing?! The Microsoft Flight Simulator team had some fun! Gave me a good smile!
Other quirky news in March saw the art world's most expensive digital painting sold at Christie’s for $69.3m! The Beeple collage is a composite of digital images created each day for more than 13 years. It was sold as a non-fungible token (NFT) which I have learned are unique files encrypted on blockchain to ensure authenticity.
The Prism office has seen each week in March getting busier with more requirements from both old and new customers. There is evidently a skills/candidate shortage in the market at the moment. I was delighted to be invited to the Blueprint LDN virtual conference to discuss hiring trends and important tips for businesses/hiring managers who are looking to grow their teams as well as prospective candidates looking for work. Thanks to those who attended the session. If you didn't manage to catch it, I have uploaded the talk to our Prism Digital YouTube channel. Check it out immediately below. In true Prism style I have been very transparent in terms of advice and the best approach!
I hope you've had a good March. As always, if you want to talk to me about the market, DevOps trends etc. do not hesitate to get in touch, it would be great to hear from you. Look forward to hearing from you! Book a call with me here
Wishing you and your family a Happy Easter!
