Thinking of joining the Now page movement
I miss Silex.
So I've been inspired by some super-smart tech people on my Twitter timeline to see if I can replace my blogging solution with something much simpler. A Static blog makes sense to me, why load the same dang thing from the database all the time when it changes rarely?
The book I'm writing has advise in it for a coder. While I was writing it I found little bits of thought that I hadn't put into practice. So I put them into practice. I've just updated my site from the ground up. Let me know if anything's busted.
Forums. Tumblr. Twitter.
My place of work has been a source of constant change for about 10 years now. Restructures, realignments, reorganizing; but we're just about to hit a change that's putting all the others to shame. Complete redesign. New reporting lines. External audit. The works. This is putting a strong strain on morale and highlighting our former collaborative culture has been eroded. Over the years we've had a few attempts at communities of practice for coders, getting people together from different areas, bouncing ideas off each other, trying to get a community going.
