It's the May 2-4 long weekend here in Canada meaning the sun is out, the leaves are budding and the traditional Victoria Day beverages are flowing. The office has been safely locked up but we'll be back in our seats bright and early tomorrow. Well, maybe not early, and you can probably scratch the "bright" bit too. But we'll be here.

In the meantime, can I strongly suggest you head over to our Azure challenge and snag yourself a Windows Surface RT. There's still time to dive in and catch up to the others.

We're also hiring. Again.

We have a couple of opportunities for talented C# and MySQL developers in or around Toronto, Canada to help us make a difference to several million developer's lives. Write code that helps your fellow software developers and get a chance to make the changes you've always wanted to make to your favourite site. The top developers in the world will use your work so this is not for the faint of heart.

cheers,
Chris Maunder
