My Favorite Line(s) of Code

Onwards to Round 2 in our current blog battle here at SEP. This time I’ve been asked to write about my favorite line(s) of code. Unfortunately, I don’t have some fancy Ruby, Haskell, or Clojure to dazzle you with. My recent tenure spent managing projects leaves me with little time to focus on the latest […]

Positive Deviance

What’s that? Another SEP Blog Battle you say? Of course I’ll chime in! What’s that? The first topic I’ve got is Positive Deviance? Ok… What the heck is Positive Deviance?

Good Idea, Bad Idea (for interviewing)

As part of the recruiting team here at SEP, I’ve seen quite a few candidates over the past few years. I figured I’d share some of the good and bad ideas people have had in hopes that maybe some of our future candidates will get some benefit out of those who have gone before. As […]

I don’t have time…

… to dust off this blog. Or do I? We’re having a little blog battle here at SEP, so chances are you’ll see me post a bit more than I have in quite a while. And maybe even a few of the other blogs here will see some posts as well. It is interesting, because […]
