For some reason this week seemed to disappear. After getting back from my trip around the globe last weekend I was excited to launch back into work. Dave and I are now working out of the Perth Annex – the Perth extension to the R & D Centre for [Intilecta] based in Wellington. Part of my time while I was in NZ was to help with the transition from SourceSafe to Subversion. This was only one part of a much larger initiative to upgrade our internal infrastructure. Already we have noticed a massive improvement in our ability to work remotely.
This leads me to my next point which is that I’m again on the road, this time at the Qantas Club in Melbourne on the way to Code Camp Oz. This is definitely one of the developer highlights of the year, although being in Wagga Wagga it is a pain to get to for people who don’t live on the East Coast – not only do we have to fly to the East (Sydney, Canberra or Melbourne), we then need to organise transport to Wagga, not to mention the additional days leave in order to get to and from the event. For future, guys (Mitch and Greg) I think it is time to rethink this decision and move it to a more hospitable location. This would also encourage international developers, such as Alex, to come across.
