Back to Austin (OT)

Last year my family & I made the move from Austin to the NYC area.  I’ve had a very pleasant run at Sungard FST (Finetix), and would happily recommend them if you’re interested in doing development in the financial arena.  From a personal perspective it’s been obvious for some time that we were happier living in Texas.  I’m starting an exciting new opportunity at the beginning of the year that will finally see me land back in Austin in February.  Because my energy is getting spent on the move, OSS work, and helping to get my new team/product/office ramped up (more on this later), I’m going to shut down the blog for awhile rather than walk around feeling guilty because I haven’t posted recently.


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you.  I’ll come back to blogging sometime early next year with new posts.  To the Austinites out there, I’ll see you at AgileATX in a couple months.


 


In the meantime, here’s to…




  • Bluebonnet season


  • Smoked Chicken Enchiladas at Trudy’s


  • Billie Joe Shaver at the Nutty Brown Cafe


  • Waterloo Records


  • Austin City Limits


  • The Alamo Drafthouse


  • The Broken Spoke


  • UT Football


  • Bob Schneider at the Saxon Pub


  • and long Friday lunches at Chuy’s

    You have to hit up “Fiesta” down on Atlantic st in Stamford before you move. My buddy Kofi showed me this place when I worked in Stamford. BEST Peruvian food ever.

    Hi Jeremy,

    It was good finally meeting you face-to-face in NYC last week. Good luck on the trip back to Austin. I’ll give you a shout if I’m ever that way – and do the same if you are ever in Tampa.

    Take care!

    Cory

    @David,

    I *should* forget Blue Bell until I’m back into basketball shape. 9 months of not going to the gym because of the long commute hasn’t been good.

  • Sheraz
