Packing for a work trip is much different when you're taking your family with you (and you're driving).
3 suitcases. Coolers. Toys. Way more books.
See you tomorrow night, #Wikimedia staff. It's going to be a busy week.
Are you a software engineer who cares deeply about CI/CD, code review, and development environments? Apply to work with the Release Engineering team (a part of our Engineering Productivity team) at the Wikimedia Foundation!
The number of #IRC channels I "have" to be in to do my job as #Wikimedia Release Manager (aka: sometimes I need to go poke people to fix their broken code that's blocking everyone else getting a new rollout to production):
3 of the greyed out channels are private work related ones. 2 are personal channels I'm in.
A really fun read for your Friday from the Wikimedia Release Engineering team about our investigation into CI performance, zombies, and some waxing poetic on the meaning of the Halloween season:
In Portland, OR for a 1 day (not my) team offsite, then 4 day Technical Conference (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Technical_Conference/2018), then 2 days for our technology management face-to-face.
It's going to be a long, but fulfilling, week.
I'm #hiring again!
Do you care about developer productivity? Do you want to help people make better software more easily and (hopefully) more quickly? That's what we're doing in the Release Engineering team at WMF.
I'm looking for candidates with wide varieties of backgrounds. The most important quality you possess is the ability to learn and a deep desire to make things better.
Join my team as a Software Engineer!
