5 open source alternatives to Trello

But most kanban board tools are multi-purpose, and you can also use them to track next actions, someday/maybe lists, or even just what groceries you need to pick up. The killer feature of almost all of them is the ability to share your boards with a team, allowing group collaboration and keeping everyone on the same page. When looking for an open source tool to fit my needs, I came across five great options and wanted to share a little bit from my experience with each.

Google's been recruiting programmers based on their search habits

mountain view ca may 26 ...

Want a job slinging code for Google? You might already be on the company's radar. According to new Google hire Max Rosett, he never applied for a job at Google -- the company reached out to him after he made a habit of using Google search as a programming resource. One day, a search for "python lambda function list comprehension" returned something unexpected: a secret Google recruitment test.

Seriously. If you search the right terms often enough, Google might interrupt your quest for knowledge with a question: "You're speaking our language. Up for a challenge?" If you are, you'll get access to, a UNIX-like interface that presents users with programming challenges. led Rosett through six different challenges, each with specific requirements and time limits. When he finished them all, it asked for his contact information -- Google rang him up, ran him through the regular employment rounds and now he works there. Simple as that.

Don't bother searching for though -- the test is invitation only. Finding the page is easy enough, but it won't let you play if you weren't specifically asked to: "To log in, you have to have logged in before," the page reads. Confused visitors are invited to, you guessed it, search Google for answers. It's a slightly creepy recruitment tool, but it's also fun, quirky and refreshing. Try it out. If you can.
