Doubling Down on Our Mission

By |January 10, 2017|

We decided to take control of our destiny yesterday, and it wasn’t easy. We said goodbye to a number of our coworkers and friends. All good people. All talented. All like family. I can vouch for all of them. Why did we do this? Mainly because we saw an opportunity to focus down on our [...]

Customer Relationships Happen Between the Lines

By |December 27, 2016|

When the marketing team sat down to brainstorm our holiday campaign, we realized that 2016 was insane. The national news that surrounded our everyday lives made our day-to-day priorities seem almost muted in comparison.  When the Orlando Pulse shooting happened, we immediately leaned on each other and our DoubleDutch PrideTogether group for mourning, understanding, and [...]

Content and Science Drive Live Engagement Results with the DoubleDutch 2016 Summer Release

By |August 31, 2016|

At DoubleDutch, we believe that live events are both an art and a science. Event marketers have an innate ability to create experiences to generate energy that moves people to action, but great events don’t happen because of an excited crowd, luck, or even flawless event execution. Great events are a result of strategic orchestration [...]

Bringing Positive Social Change At Work

A few months ago, I reached an important milestone in my DoubleDutch career...my 1 year workiversary. It had me feeling extremely sentimental and reflective as I thought back to my very first week at DoubleDutch. I arrived wide eyed and bushy tailed and just had this gut feeling I’d stumbled onto something very special. Boy, [...]

The Curious Case of the Very Lazy, but Blazingly Fast, JSON Parser

By |July 26, 2016|

tl;dr I wrote a JSON parser to improve performance for a very specific use case and found that it was also blazingly fast for the general case. As is often the case, the really good solutions seem to come when you are solving a problem for yourself (my personal theory is that your own problems stay [...]
