You may be wondering what I, Jonathan, am doing writing an entry in the Bamboo blog? We'll if you haven't guessed it already both New Bamboo and Agile Evolved decided late last year to form a new company. OK, that's a lie, to tell the truth, I lost the company to Damien and Max over a World of Warcraft match.
But seriously, the reason that Agile Evolved joined forces with New Bamboo was to combine all of our talents to form the UK's premier Ruby on Rails consultancy. With us all coming together you'll have:
- Max and Damien's impeccable experience with working with cutting edge start ups
- My experience of applying web 2.0 technologies/principles in the enterprise
- Dr Fishers knowledge of AI, search algorithms et al
- And finally Marek's deep understanding of all things Ruby
The first thing we did when the merger occurred was to make a cup of Early Grey. The second thing we did was to finally kit the office out with some furniture. Previously I'd gone for the minimalist approach of a few desks and some Aerons, yep I never said I was the artistic one in the company. Pictures of our new refurbished office can be found in our "Flickr account":http://www.flickr.com/photos/new_bamboo_london.
