Jacinta Richardson runs Perl Training Australia, a micro-business offering courses throughout Australia.

cycling and baking.

Come along for a whirlwind tour of these frameworks and more and see their strengths, their failures and make an informed decision about which one you'll use for your next project. Read more.

The president of your committee is doing most of the work and none of the management. The secretary hasn't written the minutes for any of the meetings for the last 6 months (you wrote the last 4 agendas). The treasurer can't access the bank account, and you haven't heard from your publicity officer since you started planning the big event. Welcome to the fun of volunteer communities! Read more.
