Having recently changed jobs I read a fair number of job specs and a phrase that stuck out for me was a desire for companies to hire someone “at the top of their game”. Companies want to hire someone that is very good at what they do. If you are at the top of your game now, where do you expect to be in the future?

Many smartphone users have a fitness app that they use to track their routes and progress on fitness goals. The data in these apps is a gold mine for planners, helping lead to better infrastructure investments.

Taken during a photography course I took a few years ago. It is in Glasgow, and the building is the Gallery of Modern Art.

Wow! Edinburgh Airport demand that you sign up for their marketing crap in order to use their WiFi.

Due to company expansion, I am currently looking to recruit .NET (C#) developers with a background in web technologies to be part of our Clinical Workflow team.

We are a small, XP-using team inside a larger multi-national organisation utilising modern components of the Microsoft .NET ecosystem combined with open-source libraries to allow us to focus on what is important, building valuable features our customer want.

If this sounds appealing or you want to know more, please get in touch with me!

There's an agile talk in Glasgow on 16th March

What could possibly go wrong when a Pole and a Frenchman enter an English office? Well, for a start you get servers called Churchill, Wałęsa and de Gaulle. In the presence of such characters it’s no wonder that a revolution was started. The country entered by the noble man was agile (with a capital A) and so were they (but not with the same a).

An autonomous collective of courageous and fearless geeks gathered along in a freshly created duchy of perpetually horded meeting rooms and joined forces into an unstoppable mob of programming.

Their sight: the land of agile orthodoxy. Their weapon: asking why (usually at least five times). Their plan: No Kan-, no -Ban, but a sacred map of all their capabilities and tasks, the Panopticon.
How many pits of success have they already conquered? Will their valiant march to sustainable delivery arrive at the pinnacle of realised business value?

Avoid people who mess with your head. Avoid people who intentionally and repeatedly do and say things that they know upset you. Avoid people who expect you to prioritize them but refuse to prioritize you. Avoid people who can’t and won’t apologize sincerely. Avoid. Avoid.
