What I was doing while I wasn’t here

20160518_213952 I haven’t posted in a while, but I’m getting ready to start a week of vacation so I’ll probably get back onto a regular writing schedule.

The first three months of this year involved no work travel, which was really nice. In the last two months, I’ve traveled 5 out of 8 weeks: San Francisco, St. Louis, Boston, London, Barcelona.

For my client in San Francisco, we’ll be publishing a case study shortly and I’m excited to share it with you all. I’ll wait to write more about it and them until it’s out, though.

Boston was great and I had an opportunity to see some friends as well as some co-workers who came into town while I was there working with a new client.

After Boston, I spent a couple of weeks writing questions for a new “agile with JIRA Software” certification for Atlassian.

I spent some time in London working on ScriptRunner for JIRA training and just generally hanging out with my co-workers, which was fantastic.

20160523_072416Then I went to Barcelona for AtlasCamp 2016 where I presented on the new JIRA certification, which I helped write and for which I am writing all the study materials.

After a week of rest, I’ll be finishing up the JIRA study materials, then beginning work on Confluence. Once Confluence is done, I’ll be writing study materials for the JIRA Software cert.

I’m also going to get back to reading. I haven’t done much PM study since I graduated in December and I don’t want to get into the bad habit of not learning and growing professionally, so I’ve ordered some new books and will begin studying again. My main focus right now is agile PM at scale.

So stay tuned for new posts in a week or two!
