We had envisioned this to be a very zen-like article on software (wanting to set the tone — this being the very first post on the blog). We however realised that none of us actually have the zen-like-knowledge nor conviction to write anything about software that any of you haven’t already read.
So, instead, we have decided to list down a few beliefs that define us as a company (a charter of sorts, if you may)
- We believe that all software in the world should be pretty
The world is already full of stuff that is not very pleasing to look at. Software – which is something that we have complete control over and can design ourselves must atleast be good to look at. Pretty enough to warrant a second look when it walks down the street and we at Intellista shall strive to make all the software that steps out of our studios – turn heads wherever it goes.
- We believe that we are stupid and will continue to be so …
We sincerely believe that we are stupid about many things. And when we stop being stupid about certain things, we shall find new things to be stupid about. We believe that being stupid helps us learn faster, take mistakes in our stride and learn from them without being overwhelmed by them.
- We believe in always finding a better way to get something done!
We believe that there is always a better way of achieving something. Be it writing a super-complicated piece of code to implement a tricky algorithm – or making a cup of cappuccino. There is always a better way. And everytime we do something again for the second time, we try and improve on stuff that we did the first time around.
- We believe in always having a bias towards action.
Whenever we are faced with a choice to “think” about something a wee bit longer vis-a-vis implement it, we are biased towards action (and implementation) as we believe that good things always come out of doing things rather than thinking about them for an eternity.
We hope that these concise points help you in understanding what to expect from us in the future.
We are a small, young software startup from Pune, India and are always experimenting and learning from our experiences. We have an uncanny knack of picking up new things – and very quickly at that.
We truly believe that technology is just a means to an end and no (technological) problem is so complicated that it cannot be solved by figuring out which bits and bytes to manipulate.
