The obligatory blog kick-off
April 26, 2012 § Leave a comment
Well, it’s official. I’m finally leaving the ranks of the un-contributing masses and joining the web 2.0 bandwagon. I thought it was a fad, “this blog thing is overrated.” Unfortunately for me, the world of technology moves at blazing speed, and like other professionals in the software world, there’s just too much going on not to talk about it.
I currently work as a Manager of Development for AtTask Inc. My intent is to share my experiences managing the process, organization, and technology as they unfold. I’ll be obfuscating personal details, but I hope to provide a clear window into the world of the modern software team, and in the process perhaps we can discover together the next “big” thing in the software delivery world. We are an agile company, building a project management tool, so I expect that my commentary will tend to focus on the process of developing software more regularly than the intricacies of different coding techniques.
Right now, we’re in the midst of a massive change: from delivering our product once per month to a Continuous Delivery model. We’re web software after all… why not take advantage of our delivery platform and ship more value to our customers more often? I’m traveling around the world speaking on these topics: last week in London at SeConf 2012, this week in Yerevan, and next week in Atlanta at The Scrum Gathering. I’ll certainly share these events with you here on the blog, as well as through my twitter feed at @dowdlemj, and on linkedin.com/in/jessedowdle.
If you’ve made it this far, hopefully you’ll come back soon, as I begin to pen my musings on this new-fangled world wide web…thing.
