Going back to work

I’ve been enjoying being an unemployed goof for the past month, but all good things must come to an end.  I’m starting a new position next month with the gang over at Dovetail Software. I’ve always enjoyed being around the Dovetail developers at Austin events, so I’m looking forward to working with them.

I’ll be, gasp, doing large scale web development on a regular basis for the first time since the glory days of 2002.  I’m not sure what the exact technology set will be (or should be), but I can promise you that no WebForms will be produced anywhere in my immediate line of sight.  

I flirted hard with going solo, but my personal situation is probably best served by a permanent position in a stable company.

    Congratulations Jeremy!

    Sounds like you’ll have a much better experience than your list gig.

    Remember, “divs” are your friend. I’ll get Chad or Kevin to slap you if even *think* about nested table layouts.

    Yeah. Eat it up. Or are we going back even further?

    Yeah, ASP 3.0 baby. Drink it in.

    Gratz… I think.

    I just started a phase of between gigs. Good to hear you’ll be dealing with the web world also, always good to have extra minds in that arena. It seems there has been a heavy back and forth lately – at least in the Portland/Seattle North West area of the country. Slowly some are moving back to Web World Work after a heavy dose of Windows World Work…

    I look forward to your continued ramblings…
