I just started a Continuous Delivery meetup group in Wellington - hoping to share knowledge, ideas and experiences.

I'm looking for others to help organise, suggest topics and present.

I just created a #trello  board for my technical books.

I was surprised to find only 4 in Reading, but 19 in Backlog!

I'm going to have to set me a BIP limit. There's a lot of waste in that Backlog; the half-life of a tech book can't be long..

So, fellow kiwis, are we going to invade YOW Melbourne or Brisbane?

Apart from the awesome speaker list at, I saw that Aaron Bedra will be presenting - will that be enough to get +Mark Derricutt there?

With jellyfish swarming our Wellington beaches, I've swotted up on treatments. The same treatment applies to Mauve Stinger Jellyfish and Blue Bottles, so you don't need to work out which one stung you.

Don't apply vinegar. This will just cause more stingers to fire!

1. Remove any tentacles (eg. using towel to avoid secondary stings)
2. Wash in sea water
3. Soak in warm water (45 degrees C) for 20 minutes

BTW, the Blue Bottle is not a true jellyfish but a siphonophore, which differs from jellyfish in that it is not actually a single creature, but a colonial organism made up of many minute individuals called zooids. (
