I’m Joining Automattic

It’s official, I’ve accepted an offer to work at Automattic!

I’m really excited to join the team at Automattic. I’ll be working on the forefront of the web writing code for WordPress and related products. I’ll also be working remotely from my home office again, which will grant me more flexibility in my schedule for my family, robotics team, and other stuff.

So, a little more information on Automattic/WordPress:

I believe this is going to be a great move for me, as Automattic fits very well with my personal ethos and workflow. I’m definitely going to miss all the people I’ve worked with over the last 3.5 years, but I’ll keep in touch as I move on!

Keep Moving forward

Hello again!

So here we are, a new home on the web for me.  I’ve tried this blog thing once before, but I was determined to use developer-ish tools to do it.  The only problem with that approach was that it made adding new posts more difficult.  Write it out in markdown, check it in to that repository, then do the static site build, check that into another repo, then update and the post appears.  I know, it’s not a lot of work, but it was enough of a barrier to keep me from contributing creatively.

So, here I start again, this time running WordPress.  Something I’ve never actually done before.  So we’ll see how it goes.  So far, the site is very default, but I’ll do my best to change that over time.
