Managing content today can be fast, slick and extensible. When it came to handling content on the thoughtworks.com website, we wanted to discard the shackles of a bloated, off-the-shelf CMS solution and come up with something lightweight but powerful, that could cope with translations and keeping track of content status. Now open sourced, Hacienda.io is the product of this idea, and this talk explores our journey in developing Hacienda.io, our approach to handling content using Git, and what we’ve learned along the way.
Hacienda.io - A New Approach to Content Management
I love challenges and solving problems and doing this alongside smart, passionate, engaging people is something I really like about Thoughtworks. I truly believe we can change the world with software and knowing my work has a bigger purpose feels very rewarding!
In my spare time, I enjoy running and volunteering, especially in projects that tackle environmental issues. I love helping other people grow and reach their full potential, so in my spare time I volunteer with CodeFirst:Girls, act as a mentor in the SheSaysManchester program, or just get involved in local initiatives around Manchester.
I am software developer for Thoughtworks working in the www.thoughtworks.com team. My language of choice is Ruby - absolutely love the idea of it being optimised for programmer's happiness. I am interested in Agile and I think collaboration is a necessity in the life of a great developer. I tweet at @mircea_moise.
Senior QA Consultant
I am wildly passionate about quality in all its forms, and enjoy working with individuals and teams to 'build the right thing' and 'build the thing right'. I thrive on challenge, enjoy thinking about things from different perspectives, and love inspiring people.
When I'm not getting my hands dirty with testing and code, I try to get out of my comfort zone and learn something new, asking questions and generally being interested in everything. In my spare time I keep myself occupied trying my hand at anything creative and singing my heart out.
