Interview Kepler on Jury Rigging

Teaser medium

It’s “Jury Rig”, use PEX, software development expertise is useful for software development, use three words for any spot on the planet.

And in the second half: Aline Lerner, founder of interviewing.io, shares her insight about the uselessness of a resume when matching a person to a tech job: there is a better way.

Jury rigging - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jury rigging refers to makeshift repairs or temporary contrivances, made with only the tools and materials that happen to be on hand, originally a nautical term. On sailing ships, a jury rig is a replacement mast and yards (which hold the ship’s rigging) improvised in case of damage or loss of the original mast.

Much better then the derogatory term used in WWII era “Jerry Rig” thanks to Frank Critchlow, via Facebook, for this info.

PEX or Cross-linked polyethylene - Wikipedia

Don’t use PVC pipe for hot water. Keith Muscutt emailed in with the suggestion to simply use PEX.
