Seeing how I haven't posted a single thing in over a month, I can see how you might expect the worst. Have no fear, I have not been abducted by aliens, nor have I been jailed for embezzlement (yet). I have merely been toiling day and night with my Intridea teammates on an exciting new project for our VisualCV clients. I am pleased to annouce that all of our hard work has finally come to fruition, and www.visualcv.com launched early this morning.
From the start we knew VisualCV would require a lot of effort and long hours, and we were right! Thanks to the coding efficiency Ruby and Ruby on Rails allow us, as well as the agile methods we put in place, we were able to meet very tight deadlines.
VisualCV aims to replace the traditional paper resume with an online version that allows you to present images, audio, and video alongside traditional resume content. The VisualCV management team and advisory team is impressive, headed up by Phillip Merrick, former CEO and Chairman of webMethods, so we're expecting good things from this endeavor.
Stay tuned for updates on VisualCV, as well as some more technical posts about some of the technology we used and some tips and tricks I've picked up.
VisualCV has been generating a lot of media buzz so far - check out some of the coverage below:
