My first tech mentor was named Simon. He sat me down in front a computer running MS-DOS when I was 9 years old. He encouraged me to explore the system using the "cd" and "dir" commands. He instructed me to look for files ending in "exe", "bat" and "com" in order to run them. He taught me how to copy, move and rename files. He showed me his CAD drawings and how they related to his work with machinery. He was the best mentor a little girl could have. He was patient, understanding, enthusiastic, and he is also my father.Posted In:

We had the pleasure of having Jez Humble of Chef and Paul Hammant of ThoughtWorks talk about Continuous Delivery at MERGE 2014. Jez shared the story of Continuous Integration on a Dollar a Day with the audience. I always enjoy how Jez tells it; he certainly makes the topic much more entertaining.
