2017 was a whopper. It was Trump’s first year as president, the year of the #metoo hashtag, and the year Australia (finally) legalised same-sex marriage. I think my wife will probably always remember it as the year I almost died on a motorbike. Overall, my highlights were: New office for the SSW Melbourne team New […]

In that time, the team has almost doubled in size, we’ve run some great events with our friends at Microsoft, and we’re working on some exciting projects for our Melbourne clients. The new office is 4 times the size of our previous office, […]
