Terakeet Data Scientist Carl Hagmann put his #Terabeats playlist together with rhythm, technical proficiency, synthesizers, and noise in mind. 🔊 

“I tend to listen to robotic electronic music during the day when I'm coding. But, in the morning, I need my wake-up metal. At night? Something a little mellower like Courtney Barnett or Ty Segall."

If rhythm and synthesizers are your jam, you'll love Carl's Spotify playlist. Listen at the link in our bio!

Today we honor all of the brave individuals who have served our country, including those on our team (pictured above: Digital Outreach Specialist Juwan Anderson and Senior Director of Content Supriya Venkatesan). 

We caught up with Juwan to ask what the day means to him and he shared this quote from Navy SEAL Chris Kyle: “I’ve lived the literary meaning of the ‘land of the free’ and ‘home of the brave.’ It’s not corny for me. I feel it in my heart. I feel it in my chest.”
