Moving on Again

I suppose I should just drop the charade about “wow, it’s been so long since I last blogged”, eh? We both know it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged, I don’t know why it has to be covered, but it does. Maybe I should even wax and wane about how I plan on blogging more in the future. I’m not making any promises about future blog posts, though I do hope I return to blogging in the near future. We’ll see, for now though I just want to drop a quick update.

As of May 20th, I’ll no longer be working at Medtelligent/QuattroSource. I just recently reached my one year anniversary with them, but awkwardly received an offer from another company on the day of my one year anniversary. Oddly enough, I also gave a talk on django-nonrel and MongoDB that very same day at the offices of Imaginary Landscape, my previous employer. Seemed like a weird trifecta that was accomplished there. That aside, it was simply an offer I couldn’t possibly refuse. Sure, the money and benefits were right, but the company itself seems like it’ll be an amazingly good fit for me personally.

The company I speak of is Analyte Health. I don’t want to speak too much about what their business is exactly and all that jazz. You can read their site if you really want that information. It’s not that it’s not interesting, because I find their product incredibly fascinating. I just don’t think you came here for a sales pitch, and honestly, I haven’t even started there yet so I don’t think I’m exactly the guy to be making sales pitches as of yet. Of course I’ll continue to be working with Python and Django, and having a lot of fun in that space. Hopefully I’ll get to continue playing in the NoSQL space from time to time, if not I’m sure I’ll continue playing with that whole field in my spare time. It really seems like a perfect fit for me at the end of the day though. Seems like they have a great office culture, a strong product, and try to develop the right way.

Anyways, don’t have a lot of time to do a proper writeup right now. I do just want to say that I’ve had a great time at QuattroSource. The people there are great, the work was fun, and I learned a ton while I was there. Truth be told, I wasn’t even searching for a job, and I just sorta fell into a perfect situation at Analyte. I’m grateful for the time I had at Quattro, and I’m really looking forward to continue to grow with Analyte. Hopefully we’ll see some more writing from me in the future, but again, no promises :)
