It has been nearly 3 months since I joined Pivotal Labs and the Pivotal Tracker team. So far, the experience has been great. While most of my time is spent writing email replies helping people get to know Tracker, I’ve also done plenty of testing and even committed a tiny fix. In short, I’ve been doing whatever the team needs done and it has all been fun.
There is plenty to write about with Tracker. Aside from selling what I personally think is a great tool for managing software projects, there is how the Tracker team operates. Obviously, we use the tool we make, but there’s another layer that is firmly grounded in the culture of trust I have found at Pivotal Labs.
Starting with this blog post, Tracker on the Agile Continuum, I am working along with my teammates at getting the Tracker Team’s story out. You might want to follow the Tracker blog because I’m not sure how often I plan to do “content pointers.” This is because I am more of a fan of having actual content in my posts, and besides, If you like my post, you might like some of my Teammates’ posts as well.
There are some phenomenal writers on the Tracker team, and next week, we’ll be welcoming another great writer and tester, Lisa Crispin, to our team. Tracker’s collaborative energy is ever rising and I hope that by combining the building of an awesome tool with writing about our experiences, we can disseminate even more of that energy. Working with it every day has been invigorating and I’d like to say thanks to all of my teammates for that.
Although the question in the title frames this post of how it’s going for me at Tracker, I’d love to hear about how it’s going for you with Tracker. If you send an email to tracker at pivotallabs dot com, chances are, I’ll be the one who replies. Send me your questions, your frustrations and your bugs!!
