It has been while since my last post. A long while. A lot has changed over the past two years. Not just in my career but also in my personal life. I apologize for the delay in the time span since my previous submission. I’ve never talked about my personal life much before so I probably won’t start now either.
I used to post code snippets or solutions to problems I’ve had; sample apps of something I was experimenting with. However, I haven’t developed full-time for over a year now. My career shifted when I was given the sole task to open a new development shop by my superiors. As well as build a new team and implement my dream child project that I had presented to the power above in the past. Tasked with finding real estate, opening an office, hiring a team of 14 and managing a new product re-write, I’ve had little room for all else. With deadlines to meet, finding ways to encourage team members, striving for perfection, new innovations and all the while learning as I go, I had no time to handle the small things I used to do like post on my personal site.
Now that we’ve settled into a routine of two week sprints and things are slowly starting to work together like a well oiled machine, I believe I will have time to post again. Though my direction may shift slightly to things more related to project management, scum or agile comments and just about software development as a whole. When the time permits I will dive back into development but only at a part-time rate. There’s a lot of new technology out there, lots of ways to manage a team and I hope to continue forward with my thoughts and ideas for any who care to listen.
I have returned.
