Our literal office picnic
Office Picnic

It’s been difficult finding nice, sunny days this summer. Unlike last year when we had a wonderful picnic at Kanawha State Forest under sunny skies, this year the threat of rain has been hanging around every weekend.

Cody Clay, from running plays to running code
Cody Clay

At 6 foot, 5 inches tall, Cody Clay is a big guy. When you see him, you can tell right away that he’s the kind of guy that fits right in on a football field. You wouldn’t picture him fitting in with the horned rimmed glasses worn by the computer nerds of 90’s sitcoms. Nor would you associate him with the lumberjack beards and gauged ears of the modern Silicon Valley hipster. But the truth is, he has more in common with them than he does with his fellow jocks on the gridiron.

The final potluck at 814 Quarrier St
Potluck

It’s the ending of an era…

For over ten years Advantage Technology has been located at 814 Quarrier St. in downtown Charleston. It’s in this building that the Advantage Technology team has gathered together to solve our customer’s technology challenges, delivered new and innovated services and just kind of hung out together.

One of our favorite ways of hanging out is the potluck lunch! Every few months we’ll all get together, eat all kinds of great homemade grub and just hang out.
