The tools we use should produce code flexible enough to deal with the ever-evolving products they test. And where better to test code against fast-changing, multi-platform content?

Everyone Should Experience the Joy of Coding

As a society we talk about outsourcing, downsizing, and retraining but not specifically how important is for everyone everywhere to learn some coding skills. The world as a whole is barreling down a path where those who know how to code will own those who don't.

Are You There Netizens? It's Me, Dana.

Dana Reilly | Posted 03.04.2013 | Technology
Dana Reilly

I don't have a fear of public speaking, but I am terrified of publishing; as a version of the cliché goes, I'd rather be the subject of an obituary than its author. And yet every morning I wake up, check my email, and search for the subject line: "You won the Listserve Lottery."

During the Hugo Awards ceremony science fiction fans are celebrated, remembered, and rewarded along with the authors. Could you imagine Hollywood celebrating its fans by name and in person, along side the stars at the Oscars? Maybe people would start tuning in again.

Data Trumps Gut

Elena Haliczer

At the end of the day, it doesn't pay to build anything, no matter how cool it seems or how 'right' you feel, unless it's backed up by numbers. If you do not keep goals and metrics in mind, development becomes an endless cycle of aimless iterations and your team's efforts are expended on trifles. What you launch will be disconnected from everything else. The goals of the business will not be met. You have to prioritize. This is how we do it.

Disruption is local, and because of that, our new teams in Spain, France, and Italy have the opportunity to be first in market, driving the type of change we've seen in the U.S. these last seven years. At the same time, they are disrupting any complacency we might have about our platform here.

Interviewing For The Tech Job You Want, Not The One They Have

John Pavley | Posted 09.01.2012 | Technology
John Pavley

Most interview processes at tech companies are failures because past performance is not a predictor for future performance. I've learned to trust a less scientific data source as both a job seeker and a talent seeker: my gut.

Looking around the vast auditorium floor I see only a handful of parents. But that's ok. I'd rather spend a weekend in the world that my kids inhabit than force them to suffer through mine.

We as consumers are too used to being treated like we are an inconvenience. In this economy, there are small businesses starving for work. There are people who take pride in what they do and there is a change happening.

The Myth of the Aging Hacker and How to Fight It

John Pavley | Posted 08.18.2012 | Technology
John Pavley

Technology has a reputation for being a young person's game. That's a perception I would like to change. Sure, when I was young I had a dozen ideas a day. But I hardly ever completed anything. Now that I am older, I have the ability to finish what I started.
