Next Monday I start at Stelligent! I have high hopes for my time with them. They are a consulting firm specializing in optimizing software production. This is of course done with things like automated developer tests and continuous integration. This will expose me to a broader range of demands on CI.
Continuous Integration, my frontier. These are the adventures of the trouble maker Jay Flowers. His mission: To explore strange new projects. To seek out new software and new teams. To boldly take CI where it never has gone before.
I think that working at Stelligent will have a great affect on CI Factory. Not only will the greater breath of experience for me translate into a more robust and polished product: I should have more time for CI Factory, the Stelligites have expressed an interesting in contributing to CI Factory, and I will get to play Johnny Appleseed, infecting more with the CI Factory meme. There are a cupla possibilities that we will explorer too: hosting a publicly visible build server for CI Factory and offering professional CI Factory support for a fee. Would any of you be interested in purchasing support?
I will be attending more conferences, speaking out more often, and writing more articles. I plan to be at ALT.NET, I want to go to CITCON Brussels, I am speaking at OpenForce’07 with Charlie Poole, and will also be speaking at RockNUG Dec 12.
It is really easy to be present in the moment. It just feels right.19,430 Total Views
