IGEL Tech Memories from Sébastien Pérusat – March 2021
Welcome to my monthly technical recap. I can’t believe we are now in April, and the first quarter already ended feels like a movie tape on Fast forward (yes, I’m old enough to remember tapes). Even if the pandemic is slowing down a lot of processes and businesses, we are still trying to be at the edge and keep you on the latest state-of-the-art technology. IGEL released a lot of great stuff to the market to you; let’s take a closer look into what we achieved with your help!
