Started a new contract this week and when you start working at a new place, you go through some onboarding. That’s what I want to discuss now.
Onboarding has become easier because most organisations use the same tools which are Slack, Jira/Confluence, Bitbucket/GitHub. Now I’m not saying everyone uses these tools, but they have become the de facto standard in organisations which I’ve worked at.
When I start somewhere new, the first thing I ask for is access to Slack, Jira, and access to the GIT repositories.
