We inherited a healthy bit of ambition from TVH that became a world player in just 30 years. They achieved this by continuously applying their knowledge to their operations in clever and flexible ways. Today, TVH is building a company that will be able to withstand the comparison with world players like Spotify, Amazon or Tesla. They are realising this by amplifying their know-how with new technology and innovative ways of organising work.
Cronos is equally a proven business integrator in Belgium. For decades they have been building a unique ecosystem for the digital world. Knowledge and know-how, entrepreneurship and ‘empowerment’ are the key ingredients to their success.
Are the strengths we inherited from our parents the keys for success? At Sweet Mustard we truly believe this is the way forward. Building world-class companies requires a healthy chunk of ambition while staying firmly grounded. Our technical know-how is as strong as other digital companies, but we add our strategic and operational cleverness and flexibility to the mix.
Sweet Mustard is formed with team players that cherish the ambition to embrace digital technology at every step of the way. We help businesses realise their ambitious future. We want to cooperate openly with companies that are willing to grow according to new models, new rules and think beyond the product. If you ask us, the brightest Flemish minds will work with us on world-class solutions close to home.
The past several weeks, a few new Sweeties joined the team: Tim, Sanne, Wouter, and Damien. They each tell us their story and how they experienced their first day working at Sweet Mustard.
Recently I found myself in a discussion with a fellow colleague about where to place the brackets for a function. Me, I like to open the brackets right after the function declaration, while he was more fond of opening the brackets below the function declaration. This got me thinking about whether there was a tool which would allow people to code in their own style, but formats everything according to an agreed format before pushing back to the shared code base. Allow me to introduce you to Prettier.
At the surface, software and music seem to be very unrelated disciplines. When you look closer, you might be surprised to see that they have much in common. Creators of software can actually learn a few things from the world of music.
