Making Best Practices the Default with GitLab

 


We pride ourselves on our adaptability to each client’s unique needs and constraints — and no two projects are the same. This is typically most evident in a project’s infrastructure, the tools, and utilities a team uses during development to track work items, streamline communication, and estimate schedules. Customizing infrastructure takes time and effort, and when timelines are tight or the engagement short, it can be hard to justify that investment. Shouldn’t we be focusing on the critical path?

Recognizing this, and in the spirit of continual self improvement, we have been investing in tools and “templates” that reduce that up-front cost so that every project can be our best, most efficient effort, no matter the constraints. GitLab has emerged as a keystone technology for us thanks to a licensing and security model that allows us to invite clients in to collaborate with us directly, and an extensible design that has enabled us to use Git in applications that it wasn’t ever intended to support.

It Takes All of Us Working Together to Solve Thorny Civic Problems

Puget Sound has its share of challenges—homelessness, traffic congestion, and affordable housing to name a few. But, an underlying issue is that we're not working together to find solutions. I'm active with the Washington Technology Industry Association's Ion program—a collaboration incubator that brings together tech, government, and not-for-profits to tackle community challenges. In this video report, I explore this important topic.

Using Autonomous Robotics to Unlock a Next-Generation Natural UI

Think about your last encounter with a robot. For most of us, communicating with robots isn’t like communicating with another person—not yet anyway! But, we’ve been working on technology that enables a much more natural person-to-person like interface. Creating an autonomous robot that makes interacting with technology as intuitive as talking to a friend is made possible by combining artificial intelligence, voice and gesture recognition, 3D mapping, and spatial awareness.
