The Story of TripTime

As a traveler (or someone who follows the trips of a traveler, such as a coworker or spouse), it’s often difficult to remember which time zone the trip is in, and what the time difference is. This is especially true for trips that span numerous countries and cities, as that time zone might change […]

Crowdfunding: New Travel Gadgets

In the last several years, we’ve seen a big boom in startups throughout various industries. This new entrepreneurial spirit has brought about dozens of websites for crowdfunding, which is the idea of getting funding a project or venture by raising monetary contributions from a large number of people. Some of the most notable projects have […]

Under The Hood: Using Puppet With Docker

TripCase is well known as the slick mobile and desktop app to manage everything about your trips, but under the hood, there is a lot taking place to make that happen. One part of the experience is our Operations Team, made up of developers (like me), system owners, and system administrators.  This team recently launched a project using […]

From Hackathon to Hands-On

In the middle of June, Sabre held the “Innovation Garage” – an event combining a Hackathon with a business-case pitch. It’s a competition where everyone in the organization could present his or her best idea to invent something new. If you’ve read my recent articles you’ll know my overall excitement for the event, and my enthusiasm for our latest technology – Sabre Dev Studio.  I’m proud to report to you that in the 24-hour contest, my team planned, programmed, and presented a fully working feature that improves the TripCase experience in a totally unique way. Although we didn’t take first place this year, I’ve never felt more successful.

Working all night long is an intimidating thought, but pulling together an excellent team made all the difference. It was crucial to team with people who have the technical skills and optimistic attitude to make the project a reality. Let me tell you who was on my team: […]

My Chaotic Life

The alarm goes off and it’s time to start the day.  It’s going to be a great day!  Looking at the family calendar I find myself relaxing.  Who would have ever thought that today of all days would be the first day in a long time where there was not anything planned on the home front? Shriek! The kids are up and about to interrupt what was once a moment of bliss – silence.  Let the day begin.

Food is quintessential to travel

When you’re not a self-proclaimed “writer” and you’re asked to contribute a post for your product’s blog, well let’s just say it’s an opportunity and a challenge.  But, aren’t most things in life that are worth doing?  What I am, is a self-proclaimed “foodie”.  If you’re not familiar with this label, it’s someone who […]

Gen Z, baby…

I am currently the youngest member on the TripCase Crew. I was born in the 90s.

To put that in perspective, I grew up obsessing over the Spice Girls and watching Boy Meets World. When I was in middle school, the thing to do was go home after school and gossip with my friends on […]

Confessions of a Weather Addict

It snowed this week in parts of the United States. Snow… In April… And I loved it! See, I need to share something about myself, something personal, something only those closest to me know. Where better a place to make a confession than the internet?

I am a weather addict! I love checking the weather. […]

Mixing Business with Pleasure…

I’ve had the good fortune of traveling the world for business. I’m not one of those travelers who have only seen the airport, the backseat of a cab, and a white-washed hotel room.  In the hundreds of cities around the world I’ve visited, I get out and experience it…whether it’s a new city or […]

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

As of late Wednesday, most of the TripCase team had returned from Boston and another successful 2012 Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Convention. And if the hoarse and raspy voices sitting around the table at this morning’s staff meeting are any indication, there was a whole lot of talking going on about the new […]
