I’m excited to announce that today I’m joining Calavista here in Austin. I’ll be providing oversight and technical direction for full stack, custom application development projects for our clients. I think I’ll mostly be working on the .Net platform, but I might get to be involved with other platforms here and there. After years of working remotely and mostly working on oddball, technical infrastructure tooling, I’m looking forward to simply getting back to project based work again — and having some measure of say over the entire technical stack;)
Several folks have asked me what’s going to happen with the OSS projects I work on and if I’d be able to use any of them in this new role. I can tell you that I don’t plan to walk away from any of my active OSS projects, but I have no idea what the future holds or whether or not it will be appropriate to use many of them in my new role. Offhand, I think I’ll be using Alba and maybe Storyteller on the first round of clients. After that, who knows?
I do know that I’ll be using my OSS work as a way to learn some technologies that are new to me but likely to show up in client project work. Definitely look for Jasper to suddenly get plenty of Azure friendly features and work much more tightly with MVC Core as part of that effort.
