Perl is alive at YAPC:EU Eligo

Yet another Rick Talks and Yet another Perl Conference... and what a Perl conference it was! Now back in the office following YAPC::EU which this year took place in Granada, Spain, I thought I'd share my reflections on what was another successful and thoroughly enjoyable Perl conference demonstrating the strength of the Perl Community and how Perl refuses to die. YAPC:EU demonstrated that in fact Perl is alive and kicking! Preparing to leave for the airport, the lovely Aleks and I packed our infamous pink stand in tow ready to meet new friends and old. Arriving in Granada late Tuesday evening we sadly missed what turned out to be one of the highlights of the conference: The Eligo...

Rewind about 20 years (if you’re old enough!). Do you remember the old days when you’d be sitting at your desk looking through the post at the CVs you’d received that day having a little laugh about that chap who applied for EVERY single one you’d advertised in the local paper? ‘God, how annoying’ you’d moan as you wrote ‘no’ or ‘reject’ on his (many) covering letters. Now move forward a little to the early days of job boards. Do you remember getting utterly swamped in applications from candidates all over the world who had no relevant skills and certainly no visa to work in the UK? That really was annoying. Having to ineptly at first, trawl through hundreds of...

interview horror stories

A man was travelling on the London Underground to his job interview one morning when another commuter blocked his way. The man reacted with a push and shove and a little explicit outburst. Upon arriving at his interview, the interviewer - a little shocked - hinted that they had previously met, before it finally clicked to the man that it had been the interviewer he had sworn at on the tube that same morning. Understandably travelling to job interviews having to conquer the rush hour tube isn’t always the most stress-free activity. However when interviewing it always pays to be prepared before, during, and after the interview, even when you’re not on the premises, to ensure  that...

hire the best security engineers

Let’s cut to the chase. A lot of companies think that engineers should be queuing at the door to join them because they are a fantastic company and they are growing, they put out adverts on job boards and on social media. These are only seen by those actively looking. Reality is that most of the best security engineers are either secure in their current role but open to something better, or they are in transition and have multiple opportunities to consider. As such, you need to offer something different and/or better to get the best in front of you. Here are the facts: The security engineer market is busy, there is a severe skills shortage, there is huge disconnect between...

recruitment costs graph

Do you know how much your company loses from the departure of an employee? Do you know the recruitment costs to hire a replacement? How about the recruitment cost of hiring the wrong replacement? Calculating these costs isn’t simple; you have to look at a number of factors including reduced productivity, angry customers, and lost investment. Of course these aren’t specifically monetary values either. Regardless, these headaches can eventually prove costly both in time and expense. This is especially true in the hiring of a wrong candidate in the market I specialise in – Fire & Security Recruitment – where there is currently a large skills shortage.  Wrong decisions can...
