In a world where just about every plant-based food maker is scrambling to make their offering ‘as good as’ or ‘just like X’, Julienne Bruno from London is taking the road less travelled. And make all the difference.

Founded in late 2020 by Pointr co-founder Axel Katalan, Julienne Bruno, who takes her name from the classic vegetable cuts, has announced the closing of its £5million seed round. The round was led by Cherry Ventures and saw participation from Outsized Ventures and existing investors Seedcamp and Nicoya.

The round aims to support Julienne Bruno’s continued global growth as well as expansion plans which include partnerships with UK national retailers such as Selfridges London, Holland & Barrett and Whole Foods Market.

To understand Julienne Bruno’s goals is to venture far, but not too far, beyond what you and I have come to call “food.” By that I mean simply: Julienne Bruno does not recreate plant-based versions of traditional meals, but rather, in the company’s own words, offering “a different perspective on plant-based foods, creating familiar but new so people can enjoy them at their quality, not because they are vegan.

Witness the brand’s “Collection 01” series, a dairy-free version of what I would call cheese. Technically speaking, Burrella, Crematta and Superstraccia are not cheese.

But if it looks like cheese, smells like cheese, and tastes like cheese, it’s cheese, right?

According to Carlos Eduardo Espinal of Seedcamp, “Julien Bruno’s Collection 01 is not only a more sustainable and ethical alternative to dairy products, but it also tastes even better! Axel and his team improve the dairy-free food experience without compromising on taste or texture! »

And if you’re wondering where the guy who co-founded an indoor mapping startup gets the goods to go and revolutionize the way we think about vegan food, well, the answer lies, at least in part, in the team he gathered around him.

The Julien Bruno range includes several Michelin star winners, and previously head of creativity at El Bulli, Founder Tickets Restaurant, Hoja Santa and Enigma, to name a few, Albert Adria, former head of food for Alan Yau Projects, starting with Head Chef in Wagamama (1992), Hakkasan, Busaba, etc., Chi San, former Managing Director of Uber Eats UK & Ireland and founding team member, Sunjiv Shah, and Board Advisor of directors Alan Yau MBE, best known for having founded many companies in the gastronomy like Hakkasan, Wagamama, Busaba Eathai and Park Chinois.

Not. Also. Pathetic.

Commenting on this investment, Cherry Ventures founding partner Christian Meermann concludes: “At remarkable speed – less than a year in development – Julienne Bruno’s team created and brought to market the best cheese in dairy free plant based.

A computer whiz who worked on hit shows such as The Crown and Line of Duty has won one of television’s highest honors; an Emmy award.

Ripon Grammar School (RGS) alumnus Mark Hills and his business partner Marc Bakos have created a revolutionary audio production system that has revolutionized the industry.

And it earned the couple the highest accolade for television work for their role in creating soundtracks for TV series such as The Crown, The Queen’s Gambit, The Flight Attendant and Line of Duty.

Mark, 41, who left RGS in 1999 to study computer science at university, is no stranger to awards.

In 2014, he was part of a great team at UK visual effects company Framestore that won both the Oscar and Bafta for Best Visual Effects for Gravity, along with George Clooney and Sandra Bullock.

But this Emmy — an elite Primetime version, which is one of the most sought after of TV’s top accolades — has his name on it.

He said, “It’s different because it’s for something I designed, and my name is engraved on it.

“I’m very proud.

“It’s great that as a technologist, these rewards are within reach.

“We had had no contact with the Television Academy, the judges seemed really impressed with what we had done.”

Their Cleanfeed system, which works for radio, TV, and film, connects studios together so the quality sounds like it’s all recorded in the same room.

Emmy judges credited the pioneering new audio production for changing the way post-production studios are built.

But Mark says it was because they were ahead of the curve that their business was ready to meet the needs of the pandemic.

After 13 years working at Framestore and needing a break, he resigned in January 2020, working his notice until March.

He said: ‘I left the office on Thursday with no work and the World Health Organization announced the global pandemic on Friday so all of a sudden all travel options were ruled out.

Mark, who was a DJ for RGS school nightclubs and later worked in radio, had developed a side business in his spare time creating software for radio stations to enable broadcasters to create programs from home them.

He said: “Suddenly everyone was trying to figure out the best way to produce shows and do interviews away from the studios during the pandemic and he got a call from the BBC, who wanted to use Cleanfeed.

“I realized the need was dire and the timing meant I was going to be home, so this was a great project to work on.

“After leaving Framestore, I also realized its potential in audio post-production for film and television, where the sound you hear is often not recorded on set, but recreated afterwards.

“There has been a lot of cross-pollination, with radio features and ideas being adapted for film and TV.

“Ideas developed for podcasters, for example, have improved features used in movies.

“It’s the intersection of creativity and technology that really excites me!

For now, Cleanfeed is suitable for professional use, but a free version allows people outside the industry to do more at home.

Developer discusses plans for boutique hotel in downtown Longmont https://formes.asia/developer-discusses-plans-for-boutique-hotel-in-downtown-longmont/ Wed, 16 Nov 2022 05:05:49 +0000 https://formes.asia/developer-discusses-plans-for-boutique-hotel-in-downtown-longmont/ The Thrash Group, a Mississippi-based hospitality company that operates the official Red Rocks Amphitheater hotel, plans to develop a boutique hotel in Longmont. “Every (hotel) is different.

The Thrash Group, a Mississippi-based hospitality company that operates the official Red Rocks Amphitheater hotel, plans to develop a boutique hotel in Longmont.

“Every (hotel) is different. We try to adapt to the local market,” said Ike Thrash, founding partner of Thrash Group, in an interview on Tuesday. “We have (a hotel) in Lexington, Kentucky that … is all about horses and whiskey.”

In Longmont, the future boutique hotel would include approximately 84 rooms and would be built on the northwest corner of Kimbark Street and Third Avenue, which is currently used as a public parking lot.

At its regular meeting on Tuesday evening, the Longmont City Council was expected to weigh in on the hotel development deal.

If approved as written, the hotel would receive up to $4.3 million in public financial assistance for the hotel project.

As of the Times-Call’s printing deadline, the city council had yet to consider the development agreement.

“I’m always grateful when someone helps us do anything – no doubt. But a lot of that money goes to the parking lot,” Thrash said of the public money that could be earmarked for the project. “If we didn’t have to build a parking garage, the incentives might be half that. But, you definitely need parking.”

As part of the development, the Thrash Group proposed to build a parking structure with 65 designated spaces for hotel guests and 75 spaces for the general public.

Given Longmont’s snowy winters, Thrash said the hotel won’t have a pool but will offer a workout area, a rooftop bar and restaurant, and meeting and event space downstairs. -pavement.

“We’re pretty much always full Thursday through Sunday,” Thrash said of the hotel company’s various other hotel properties. “We have less corporate business than most hotels, but more transient business than most.”

Thrash estimated that rooms would likely cost around $175 a night at the Longmont Hotel, but said the price could go up or down depending on the night and the market at the time.

During the invited-to-hear public portion of Tuesday’s city council meeting, some residents and business owners raised concerns about the hotel’s impact on downtown parking availability.

However, other Main Street business owners spoke enthusiastically about the prospect of a new hotel, believing it would generate more foot traffic and help their bottom line.

The Longmont Downtown Development Authority approved the boutique hotel plan at its Nov. 9 meeting.

The boutique hotel is valued at $24.5 million and could open in mid-2024, according to a city press release.

Thrash said his company was particularly interested in developing a hotel in Longmont given the town’s rapid growth.

The hotel is also estimated to create between 60 and 70 jobs, Trash said.

“Longmont is adorable,” Thrash said. “I would live there in a heartbeat.”

GitHub extends AI-powered Copilot to developer teams https://formes.asia/github-extends-ai-powered-copilot-to-developer-teams/ Wed, 09 Nov 2022 17:35:20 +0000 https://formes.asia/github-extends-ai-powered-copilot-to-developer-teams/ Popular software development hosting service GitHub Inc. is making life easier for coders of all shapes and sizes with a series of updates and new features announced at its annual GitHub Universe event today.

Popular software development hosting service GitHub Inc. is making life easier for coders of all shapes and sizes with a series of updates and new features announced at its annual GitHub Universe event today.

The big news is that GitHub’s AI-powered Copilot tool is being made available to businesses of all sizes. The tool was previously made available to individual developers earlier in the year, but GitHub said it wants larger teams of developers to benefit from a virtual helping hand that can improve their speed and productivity. .

GitHub’s co-driver has proven popular with coders since it launched in beta testing in June 2021. The company claims it acts as a kind of “AI pair programmer”.

It is powered by OpenAI Codex and helps developers by suggesting the next line of code as they type in an integrated development environment such as JetBrains IDE, Neovim, or Microsoft Visual Studio Code. Copilot does much more, for example by suggesting complete functions or more complex algorithms when they might be suitable.

The launch of Copilot for Business is expected to arrive soon, and when it does, companies will be able to purchase and manage seat licenses for the tool for teams of employees, helping them massively expand their use of AI.

In a blog post, GitHub Managing Director Thomas Dohmke said Copilot has proven to be a transformative technology. “Just as the use of programming languages ​​and open source revolutionized the industry, AI is transforming the future of software development,” he said. “AI will soon be integrated into every aspect of the developer experience – and as a result, we’re making GItHub Copilot even more accessible.”

GitHub seems to think it will be a worthwhile investment, pointing to an internal study that shows how Copilot was able to increase developer productivity by 55% with its coding suggestions. That’s not the only benefit, as the same study showed that Copilot also has the effect of boosting developer happiness. Not only do developers benefit from increased productivity, but they can also focus more on business logic and uncover ideas they might not have considered on their own.

Companies interested in rolling out Copilot to their developer teams are encouraged to join the waitlist here.

Copilot is not only becoming more accessible, but also more responsive, according to the company. In a second update, GitHub is introducing a new experimental voice-activation feature called “Hey Github”. It’s similar to saying “Hey Google” on an Android smartphone in that it wakes up Github Copilot and activates voice interactions. The idea is to make Copilot more accessible to developers who for some reason may not be able to use a keyboard, the company explained. Again, developers will have to join a waiting list to try it out.

“With the power of your voice, we’re excited about the potential to bring the benefits of GitHub Copilot to even more developers, including developers who struggle with typing,” Dohmke said. “Hey, GitHub! only reduces the need for a keyboard when coding in VS Code for now, but we hope to expand its capabilities through further research and testing.

Platform updates

GitHub is also building its capabilities in other areas. For example, the cloud-based Codespaces editor is made available to all developers, including those just starting out. Codespaces debuted in May 2020 and is based on Microsoft Corp’s Visual Studio code editor. It can be launched directly from GitHub’s code hosting platform, allowing users to immediately start editing the code they’re viewing, rather than importing it into a separate IDE.

To encourage developers to use Codespaces, GitHub said each user will get 60 hours of free access each month, with paid subscriptions available for those who need it more often.

Other new features unveiled today include new code search and code view capabilities designed to improve the way developers navigate GitHub. Users will soon see a new search engine and interface that will take them to global code in less than a second, the company said, with smart suggestions that can auto-complete their queries. At the same time, GitHub is revamping its code view in a way that integrates search navigation and code navigation.

Additionally, GitHub has rolled out new welcome roadmap and to-do list features for GitHub projects. The idea is to provide developers with a complete picture of what each project is working on, what’s next, and how those elements stretch over time. Task lists, on the other hand, are designed to support complex hierarchies.

Private Vulnerability Reports are also being launched in beta, as part of an initiative to ensure bugs can be fixed before malicious hackers take advantage of them. Currently, code vulnerabilities found on GitHub must be reported to maintainers through a variety of often dangerous channels, GitHub said, meaning they can be publicly exposed before being mitigated. The Private Vulnerability Reporting feature is designed to address this issue with a standardized, convenient, and most importantly, secret way to report, assess, and resolve any bugs found in open source software repositories.

Finally, GitHub announced GitHub Enterprise 3.7, a new version of its enterprise-grade compliant platform that includes over 70 new features and updates to GitHub Actions, a continuous integration and continuous delivery platform for DevOps teams. With GitHub Actions, developers can now take advantage of larger hosted executors that support larger codebases and more complex workflows, the company said.

Thousand Oaks has chosen a developer to build 59 affordable townhouses for sale on the former site of the Hillcrest Christian School.

The city council on Tuesday evening chose the nonprofit People’s Self-Help Housing Corp. of San Luis Obispo to build the project, which will also include 19 townhouses for low-income households.

Sales prices are initially expected to range from around $275,000 to $600,000, Veronica Garcia, the developer‘s head of property development, told the board.

Unit prices will depend on their size and destination for low- or moderate-income households, City Manager Drew Powers said. Units will range from one to four bedrooms, he said.

In voting to select People’s Self-Help Housing, Councilman Al Adam said the project represents a “significant step up” from other affordable housing projects in the city, including 114 rental units approved last year, as it will offer the homes for sale.

Build a Rocket Boy, the studio run by former Grand Theft Auto producer Leslie Benzies, has announced plans to open a new studio in France.

The Montpellier studio will support the development of Everywhere, the studio’s first ambitious game, which is scheduled for release in 2023.

The new Montpellier studio will “meet the growing needs of the global development team” and become a talent hub for developers in France, according to a statement from the developer.

Build a Rocket Boy will continue to be headquartered in Edinburgh and will continue operations in Budapest.

Everywhere – Trailer

“I am delighted to have these fantastic industry veterans leading our Montpellier studio,” Benzies said in a statement.

“The talents from Montpellier who have joined us for a year have taken Everywhere to a whole new level. Relocating and opening an office in France will significantly expand our footprint and is the next natural step in the evolution of Build A Rocket Boy.

Edinburgh-based Build a Rocket Boy premiered the first Everywhere trailer during Gamescom Opening Night Live in August, when it also confirmed plans for a 2023 release.

According to the studio, Everywhere “seamlessly blends gameplay, adventure, creativity, and discovery in an all-new, multi-world gaming experience that redefines how players connect with each other and the digital world around them.”

Speaking about the game in August, Benzies said, “Our intention has always been to push the boundaries of what a video game can be while delivering an innovative player-centric experience.

“The team we’ve built and the partners we’ve created since our founding unite around the single vision we bring to life. It’s exciting to be a part of it, and we look forward to revealing more about Everywhere in the months to come.

Following speculation that the game could support NFTs or cryptocurrencies, a representative for the studio said on Reddit that the game is built on Unreal Engine 5 and not blockchain, but the company is not rejecting this technology.
