I am the ghost of groovymother.com. Woooooo!

This is an old page from Rod Begbie's blog.

It only exists in an attempt to prevent linkrot. No new content will be added to this site, and links and images are liable to be broken. Check out begbie.com to find where I'm posting stuff these days.

Etsy Hacker Grants: Supporting Women in Technology

More on Etsy’s sponsorship of Hacker School. So cool.

Hacker School

Posting this for two reasons:

1) If you’re a coder in NY and want to become better, this looks like a great programme.

2) A nod to Etsy taking a concrete step towards encouraging female participation. Managing to support women in a non-patronizing way (without allowing accusations of affirmative action) is tough. Nice work, Marc & co.

Quantum of Deployment

Etsy’s site deployment process. Slide’s is a bit more complex and a smidge more manual (since we have multiple product teams, and several branches in QA at any given time), but we can still go from git commit to live site in under 10 minutes, and did 20 live site pushes yesterday.
