Image: A Look Back by Michael McClendon This post comes from Iran Rajakaruna, a junior engineer who came to us through the Tin Alley Beta internship program. Last summer was a big turning point in my life. I still remember the day that I came for an interview with Redbubble the same way that I remember any other first days in my life. I was excited, anxious and happy at the same time. My first impression of Redbubble was a beautiful experience, like love at first sight. I loved the funky office with bean bags, foosball table and free beers. Let me go back a few months and start from where it all began. Last November, I was at RMIT University

At Redbubble we are about supporting the communities that love creating. Whether the creation is web products, set work or any engaging experience, it doesn’t matter. It’s our commitment to foster and nurture those that are passionate. One of the initiatives in the web product arena is supporting the LAST Conference (@LASTConf) – a small, local grass roots event all about product development. Craig and Ed the team at LAST work hard to get great speakers and sponsors that live and breathe product and if you have attended, you’d understand it’s a great day.
Last Wednesday, we hosted a meet-up of the Agile Product Owners and Business Analysts group. The title of this meetup was “Validated Learning and Outcomes Using Lean Startup and Agile“. At Redbubble, we believe that sharing the knowledge and the experience we have is important for the community. We are grateful to have such capable and keen people around us and hosting an event like this would allow us to make the world a better place. We also wanted to talk about how we practice Lean Startup and Agile principles to achieve our goals of increasing value to our customers.
A couple of weeks ago we were honoured and excited to welcome Alistair Cockburn, one of the authors of the Agile Manifesto, into Redbubble HQ. It was a hastily arranged, last minute opportunity, and we were thrilled that Alistair could spare the time for us out of his busy trip to Melbourne. Alistair took over Level 2 (none of our meeting rooms were big enough for the occasion). He told us a bit about himself, his views on Agile Software Development (he describes it as a “co-operative game”) and ran an exercise with us.
