what we're up to now.


Yesterday’s Toy Store, Today’s Library

As the son of an elementary school teacher, being a reader had never been something for me to consider–it was a mandate. This meant ample trips to the local library.

One quick but important side note is that, in addition to being a fairly regular reader, I was also a toy store junkie.


Anode Receives National Recognition for Work at Nashville Public Library

We’re pleased to announce that we have received a platinum award in LibraryWorks’ second annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs) for the Digital End Caps produced for the Nashville Public Library (NPL).


Real World Functional Style Programming Patterns in C#

There are a considerable number of people who will gush over functional programming, and I am one of those people. The use of mathematical functions to determine computational output based only on the arguments that are input to the function is a sweet, organized melody of calculated logic to my inner soul.


Lessons for a Positive College Experience (#3: Take Risks)

If you don’t put yourself out there, then you’ll never discover anything new. Learning to take risks is an important lesson that I learned during my years at Adrian College. In the third installment of this five-part series on my advice to college students, I offer my experience on the value of finding the confidence and willingness to take risks.


The Hidden Message in Our Tower Sculpture

When the time came for a makeover of the exterior of our building, we knew we wanted a bold statement that carried with it a sense of sophistication, while also hiding a secret message that only employees and friends (who are in on the secret) could appreciate.


TMBT – Gibson Stars and Guitars Interactive

We recently started an initiative called “Take Me Back Tuesday” to educate our newer employees on Anode’s history of developing interactive museum exhibits. This week we looked back to 1995. The year that Toy Story hit theaters; the DVD format was introduced; and the year Gibson Guitars turned 100.


Lessons for a Positive College Experience (#2: Find the Spark)

Last week, I started sharing personal lessons from my college days. These lessons were originally presented around this time last year during my convocation speech to Adrian College’s class of 2018. This week, I want to share my advice on finding your spark.


Lessons for a Positive College Experience (#1: Have Fun)

Over the past few weeks, countless college freshmen have confidently embarked on their college careers with their mini-fridges and laptops in tow. Around this time last year, I was honored to present the convocation speech at my alma mater, Adrian College. As the class of 2019 settles in, I want to share a few highlights from my speech.


Real World C# 6 Impact

We are constantly upgrading our programming tools and languages to take advantage of the latest technologies. The connected, interactive touchscreen applications that we are building today are vastly different than the standalone programs we developed 12 years ago. C# is one of the programming languages that we are currently using to create much richer (and much more reliable) visitor experiences for museums, libraries and corporate visitor spaces.
