Volano is holding its second annual moustache event; most of the team is growing honorary facial hair. We’re not raising awareness or taking donations, nope, we’re just doing it because it looks silly. The rules are simple and are based on one overarching tenet – moustaches rule. So you can butcher the beard, shear the soul patch, and vanquish half the Van Dyke. BUT DON’T SHAVE THE MOUSTACHE.
We did this in October last year and later found out that was a faux pas. Because there is a dedicated month for this: Movember (a combination of the words ‘Moustache’ and ‘November’). Movember is an annual month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November. The event has been claimed to have been invented in 1999 by group of Australian’s. Of course. A similar observance in the United States and Canada, called No Shave November, involves a full beard as opposed to a mustache.
So what is in this for you? That’s easy: pictures. At the end of Movember we’ll be posting pictures and you can comment on who looks the goofiest. Stay tuned.

Several years ago, I was working on a product that required some attention from the software product teams.
