This time we decided that our integration party should take place outside of our office. Our pick of the day was paintball. Everyone was very happy. It is known that physical activity is good for our health…and it is much needed in our industry.
We listened carefully to the words of our field instructor. In theory everything was clear and well understood. Do not shoot your opponent in the back and face. Do not use paintball marker shoulder stock to finish you opponent. Do not shoot at a distance lower than 2 meters. It was all logical and easy to remember. However, practice showed us different thing. As we all known, war has it’s own set of rules and war is not without casualties.
Our group was split into two teams. Yellow bands were given to the android and testers guys, the red ones went to iOS developers. Our clash lasted for two hours. We played team deathmatch, capture the flag and fort defence. At the end, each team called themselves winners 🙂
After paintball it was time for barbecue. While the sausages were joyfully burning on the fire, we talked about battles we fought. There was no shortage of people willing to brag about their wounds.
