Having read a lot of resumes over the years, Jeffrey nails it in his post How to write a bad resume. Most mortals can fit their background on one page. After about ten years of experience, you might merit a second page. Maybe. But think hard first. It might take 15 years before we need to hear it all. I really don’t understand the 3+ page resume fascination. Charles replied with typical style from a developer’s perspective: I think what many people forget is that Read more […]Continue Reading →
I’m not usually one for blogging humour – but this video that one of our developers shot is hilarious 🙂 Like it? Digg it 🙂Continue Reading →
In spite of the six thousand manuals on child raising in the bookstores, child raising is still a dark continent and no one really knows anything. You just need a lot of love and luck – and, of course, courage. – Bill Cosby, Fatherhood, 1986 Being a parent is at once hard and rewarding. It’s a part joy, part frustration and always a learning exercise. I am one of the two parents of Atlassian, the father of the crazy idea that became JIRA and a guy who bleeds Atlassian Read more […]Continue Reading →
“All courses of action are risky, so prudence is not in avoiding danger (it’s impossible), but calculating risk and acting decisively. Make mistakes of ambition not mistakes of sloth. Develop the strength to do bold things, not the strength to suffer.” – NiccolÃ² Machiavelli, The Prince Today we’re making a big announcement and we think we’re in good company. Apple did it ten years ago… “We have to let go of the notion that for Apple Read more […]Continue Reading →
I was a happy attendee at WebDirections South 2007 and WebJam last week. Congratulations to John, Maxine, Lachlan and all involved – truly fabulous conference. The vibe was fantastic and the sessions I attended were all really high quality. Mark Pesce’s keynote to close the conference was – well – one of the most entertaining and informative presentations I’ve ever seen at a conference – and I go to a lot of conferences. He talked about mob mentality, Read more […]Continue Reading →
Everyone will tell you that I love pirates, and being Talk Like A Pirate Day I loved seeing Flickr getting into the spirit of things with a new logo today: (Note: I also love it when Flickr greets me with G’day and informs me that now I know how to greet people in Australian – ha!) I almost didn’t notice however the new language they’d added called “Arrr!” which complete pirate themes Flickr – now that is cool. Easy be your treasure to find Read more […]Continue Reading →
If you were were confused by the teaser – my apologies. I started a huge post and only got as far as the movie so turned it into a teaser. If you haven’t heard by now (and why would you?), Cutlassian was Atlassian’s latest over-the-top employee event following on from last year’s Mission:Atlassian. The day was a huge success but I won’t prattle on about it here because there are better locations to find information. If you’re a video person, Rob our video Read more […]Continue Reading →
I spent the last half of last week at the Morgo conference on the beautiful northern tip of New Zealand. I have to say that I was thoroughly impressed by the conference in general. Australian tech companies could learn a lot from the way those Kiwis are supporting each other. I met an absolutely passionate bunch of folks with good ideas on building companies from the “wrong end” of the planet. Down to earth, pragmatic, practical entrepreneurs seemed to be the main. I loved it! Presentation Despite Read more […]Continue Reading →
