The stories on how James Brown (you know, the godfather of funk) managed his band are as many as the hits they created. What made James Brown an excellent leader was not only the fact that he, according to himself, held a doctorate in funk, but his ability to not only always know exactly what his band members were playing and how they played it, but also have an idea of what and how they were supposed to play the next part, to make the song absolutely perfect. This to us symbolizes the true essence of teamwork and is the true vision for the Skymill culture. Does this sound like something you could stand behind? Well read on, future Skymillian.
We are all about creating that unique feeling that James and his band did (focusing on the music and the dance, minus all the scandals of course), but within software development, code and programming. When our clients decides to engage Skymill in their projects we want to give them a show to remember. Not that our band isn’t great already, but in order to meet our audience’s demands we need to add a new member, with front-end development as their speciallity.
