“The internet needs another blog!” Never Said by Anyone, Ever

Everyday we’re bombarded by a sea of what someone who used to be cool called too much information. It’s the nature of the internet. It’s a strength and a weakness. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to decipher the meta-nature of True Detective or if you’re trying to divine a way to get Docker containers to work at scale; there’s an answer out there or someone has a point of view that they’d like to share.

The point of this blog is two-fold:

  1. We hope that these series of posts and articles can help out others.
  2. We hope that the writing of these posts and articles can help us.

The content contained in this blog will be a combination of tips and tricks, short and long form articles with a decided bent towards all things technology. We will share comparisons, guides, insights, investigations, observations and tips that we have found useful on our collective journeys. We’ll try to avoid metal gifs, well at least this author will try to avoid them. Try.

So let’s begin

Wait! Who are we?! We are a collection of individuals across multiple execution disciplines including, but not limited to:

  • Business Intelligence
  • Call Center
  • Creative
  • Delivery Management
  • Front End Development
  • Information Technology
  • Marketing Operations
  • Product Management
  • Program Management
  • Software Engineering
  • System Engineering
  • Test Engineering

We are interested in tools, languages and approaches that get the job done (and sometimes the ones that don’t). We use Python and Ruby, Django and Rails, PostgreSQL and SQLServer, Nose and Rspec, Emacs and Vim, Windows and Linux. We use tools that are right for the job (and sometimes we don’t).

We contribute patches back to the Open Source community. We have spoken at conferences and meetups. We maintain our own repository of projects.

So here we are, thanks for reading and we’re hoping that you get something out this (maybe just not this silly - but necessary - introduction).

OK, maybe one little gif to get things started.
