Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage.

Principles behind the Agile Manifesto

After two and a half years at Smoothwall, I'm moving on - Friday is my last day. Since I joined the development team, we have adopted Agile development, set up a pretty nifty Gerrit/Jenkins code review + integration system, and introduced dpkg for package management. Along the way, I helped with a bunch of important features for the business, like a ground-up rewrite of the web filter, and time-based browsing usage quotas.

I will be starting at CV-Library on Monday, for a whole new set of challenges. They're based in Fleet, so I'll have an hour-long commute each way on the train.

I've been assured by an expert in these matters that facilitating wage slavery is a comparatively more ethical pursuit than facilitating internet censorship. :)

To make the commute somewhat more bearable, I'm moving house on Saturday. So far, the packing's going quite well...
