Taoti is located in the shadow of the US Capitol building.  Space is limited around here, so our office is small and humble.  But we painted it our trademark orange so that we’d feel at home.  And we do.  Here are some random shots of the team in their naturual habitat.  DISCLAIMER: pictures of everyone being dialed in and working diligently (as we normally do) are boring.  So the only time someone snaps a photo is when we’re having some fun and blowing off some steam.  Please don’t let the fact that the following photo essay shows our lighter side lead you to believe that we’re anything but a hard-working team! 😉

Some of the devs dicussing what are surely serious matters, as evident by the somber faces:

Around here, when you’re working on a production server, you have to wear a viking helmet so that everyone knows to let you focus.  The horse mask is simply personal preference:

Greg likes dinosaurs–a bit more than any adult should like little plastic toys.  So, as inspired by The Office, we molded his dinosaurs into a Jello mold one day.  #schnippypranks:

The dinosaur thing provides for a neverending source of pranks.  This one involved a toy dinosaur with a string around its leg.  When Greg picked it up, the nerf gun was supposed to shoot him.  It worked perfectly on paper…
