Starting at a new company is always a daunting prospect, you’re never quite sure what to expect. When I started at CTI I had no choice but to hit the ground running. I couldn’t have hoped for anything better. I don’t like the periods of not knowing what’s going on the waiting that usually occurs while people find how your going to fit in. None of this happened.

git clone email@example.com:digital006/drupaldev-nginx.git
Hope these are useful to others.
I’ve started working on some really cool projects now that I have a bit of time spare. I have 4 that I’m running concurrently which is quite a lot considering at least 2 of them are quite big. Knowing what you’ve achieved is an excellent way of keeping motivated and running that side by side with what’s to be done gives you an overview of the entire project. To manage my projects I’m using Trello.com which has a really great interface and is dead easy to setup. I’m fairly sure I’m using a bastardised version of Kanban but it’s proving...
