Looks kinda neat but the pure magic here is in its interactive behaviour: click any element on that chart and watch the other graphs transition in a clean animated manner. CSS transitions, eat your heart out! Continue reading
Something funny has been happening recently: I’ve noticed a whole group of recruitment agencies report job market movements.
This never used to be the case you see; if you wanted an update, you would have to ask a recruitment agent directly. And even when you do ask, the information is usually off-the-cuff, reactive and unprepared. Recruitment agencies now are starting to collate information and report on it in a more structured way – which is fantastic mind you as I would rather be informed than not (I am guessing that most of you feel the same way).

A reblog of sorts with the original posted here.
But here’s a view of my parallax cv anyway:
Click the image above should redirect you to the site. In a way this continues on from my prior post on CV’s.
An opportunity to sit in on a Matt Mullenweg talk only comes once in a blue moon. And as Matt reminded us during the Sydney WordPress meetup held at the Australian Technology Park last night, it only comes once every 6 years – he last came in 2008 and stated that he might come back in 2020 (insert grain of salt here).

I caught this article last week and a little subheading caught my eye: “Tech could make up resources shortfall“.
Based on the last Job Market post I published during Easter, Technology is looking pretty good i.e. their hiring more than the Mining sector (which wouldn’t be too hard mind you).
Here’s the graph that compares Technology sector with Banking (Financial Services really) and Sales.
Here’s a look a quick peak of the Mining job numbers Continue reading
A little while ago, I branched out my site into 2: Market Measures Australia forked out and became marketmeasuresaustralia.com and my original site became thoughtsbypc.com. I tried to explain it here BUT have had to deal with some troublesome side-effects:
- Files did not migrate
- Images did not come across.
There’s nothing more embarrassing than when a new reader lands, reads and receives a 404 or a broken link message.
So just to ensure I don’t lose the original intent on why I went down the path of branching one site into two, I am putting up this post on some of my old work: Continue reading
