Dale,

I sent you a PM. Feel free to post the answer here if you feel that it is a general enough question.

Hey Aaron,

Is an english degree required: no. I care more about ability over status. Having said that, a degree is generally a short hand for ability. So it is recommended, but not required. If you can do the work, IMO, the degree is not important.

Tangent: Same is true with the Hero Lab Programmer position. I do not know anyone that went into computer science without doing some programming beforehand. And I've known plenty of excellent programmers that choose to do something else professionally and program on the side. But they are still excellent programmers. So no, a degree is not necessary. Ability matters. Again, the degree is shorthand for ability.

Time requirement: <10 hours per week, probably closer to 5. This isn't my day job either so I don't produce much. I'm not on a weekly schedule. My attitude is that this is suppose to be a fun job and low stress. So the pressure of a weekly product schedule is out. Mind you, if you're a slow reader, it'll take longer. I'm sure there are going to be weeks where there's nothing and some where there's alot, but I'm going to try to keep a steady average in work quantity.

Reading the Programmer requirements,
I assume the programmers will need to be familiar with Tortoise SVN and have their own IDE for programming.

Truth be told, I'm not familiar with Tortoise.

Programming is specifically Hero Lab-based. The language is a specialized XML variant. The basics aren't hard, especially if you use the program's editor. I can do the basic myself, easy enough. The part that is beyond my skill to write in an efficient timeframe are the more conditional based material. (Plus I just don't have time to do an entire book of monsters and write it as well, but that's a different point).

Many thanks! That's good information to know! I will consult with DW this week and send in a resume if we think we can swing the time.

I would recommend Tortoise SVN as some of the programs I made got fubar'ed and I need to transplant and repair a bit at a time, before I got it working again.

It is a good back-up system as one of our projects went fubar on me, and I svn'ed it back into working order in less than a minute.

Tortise can work with online repositories, like assembla

Hmm, I'll have to look more into that tonight. thanks, Azure_zero.

I hope you looked over Tortoise SVN and found it useful.


And now, let the interview process begin!!

I hope that the competition/ interview process doesn't involve duels to the death. THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE (editor for JBE)!!!

My death as a result of fighting to the death over an editor position, would really upset Dearest Wife. And you don't want to upset DW...

Damn, I wish I had found this thread sooner. I may not have an English degree, but I did a lot of proofreading in high school and college.


@DemonicEgo: I'm in the same boat as you, except that I have continued to do proofreading after college. And I got my application in on time. ]:)

While I was deployed to Iraq, working in the command post, I kept myself busy by proofreading papers for some of our officers who were working on Master's Degrees.

I also wrote a Memorial Day speech for one of the officers. He had asked for ideas of what to speak about, so I wrote what I thought was a decent intro. He told me that he basically took what I wrote, tweaked a few words to make it fit the Columbus Ohio area and added "thank you" to the end.

Now I proofread all awards submitted by my Nat. Guard unit.

Dale,

For those of us not attending Paizocon, when should we expect to be hearing from you about scheduling a Skype interview? Thanks!
