I made the hard decision to leave reInteractive recently. It wasn't easy for many reasons but at the end I decided to take on a new challenge. I don't want to go without writing something about my time at reinteractive which has been really great.
During the last 18 months I have had a blast working with this team, reInteractive is a fantastic company with a lot of respect and care for their developers.
We're counting down the days until we can pack our bags and head to next year's RubyConf AU in Melbourne! With so many awesome talks lined up and social events on the cards, February could not come sooner.
We're even more excited to announce that we'll be sponsoring 3 major events on Saturday! As with our InstallFest and Development Hub events, we're sponsoring events that bring our Community together. Check them out below.
I have done a decent amount of technical talks during the last 6 years, nowadays I feel fairly comfortable doing them, but I haven't always felt like this. I know from experience that the prospect of talking in public can be daunting, especially when is your own content you will be talking about.
In this post I want to share the roadblocks that cross my mind when pondering the idea of doing a talk and the things that helped me to be a better speaker. Some of my most recurrent thoughts are:
Over the past year and a half, our InstallFest initiative has introduced more than 600 developers to Ruby on Rails. These developers have been able to move onto Development Hub, but we feel there is a gap. If you look at the job boards, there are a lot of opportunities for mid to senior level Rails developers, but a scarcity of junior level positions.
This presents a problem, how do we take these awesome beginning developers and build them into mid to senior level develops to grow our community? And how to do this efficiently?
reinteractive is Australia’s largest dedicated Ruby on Rails development company. We don’t cut corners and we know what we are doing.
We are an organisation made up of amazing individuals and we take pride in our team. We are 100% remote work enabling us to choose the best talent no matter which part of the country they live in. reinteractive is dedicated to making it a great place for any developer to work.
