Yesterday I posted about what I called the Continuum’s compensation package. It sounds cool, and it is cool. That said, I think that the only way to make it real is to use what’s being offered. For example, among other things, I have:

  • Talked with them when I started, to not work strictly full time. I have a thesis to finish.
  • Learned to pair-program, among other agile practices. And continue doing so.
  • Took my share of responsibility on what we do as a company and how we do it.
  • Took the opportunity (and challenge!) of working with Hashrocket!
  • Played a key role to form the Dynamic Languages group and also try to be as involved on it as my time permits.

Honestly, it has been much more fun than expected!
