Adam Cogan interviews Dominic Danis from Pyxis, a software consulting firm based in Montreal.

Pyxis is a fascinating company. Based on a mantra of ‘it’s all about the people’, we see in this video how Dominic and his colleagues strive to always provide the best workplace conditions for their employees.

It’s easy to see how the great working conditions and relaxed atmosphere have translated into great real world products for Pyxis; Urban Turtle, an Agile plug-in for TFS 2010, is a prime example of this.

From the video, you’ll see:

  • An in-depth look at Urban Turtle for TFS 2010, plus some discussion on possible new features (such as Kinect integration)
  • How the product was almost called ‘Greenhopper’ for TFS
