    Team Victorious Secret (The Processing Foundation) [2017] — at August 19, 2017 04:37 UTC

    Hola!

    Today we enjoyed our day off. We went back to our home after college for a much needed rest.

    We also read about the importance of taking time off in order or re-energize and reorient ourselves. We were not very well aware of extent of the burnout in the technical industry and would like to thank RGSoC for throwing light on such an important topic.
