Sales staff cannot live at anything less than the speed of light, but occasionally there is a need to slow down. Alpha’s Jeff Wilt and Sean Bowman have been known to break bread at Slowpokes, and it is a real treat as “locally sourced” is a keystone of the establishment. The coffee is wonderful as well – fresh, strong, and sufficient caffeine to get both of them up to warp speed again.

What happens when you put Alpha Testing engineering staff together in one room? You get soil PI contests, Top Golf, and a whole lot of engineering expertise exchanged.
