yesterday was my last day at radar networks. i had been there for 31 months. (incidentally, i’ll be 31 years old in a few months as well).
i’ve learned a lot working there; it was the first venture-funded startup i had worked for. i got to see the team grow from around 5 to the current 20-something. my co-workers and teammates were all immensely skilled in areas different than i, so it was a great experience to witness how they did what they did. we worked like mad to get twine launched. i now leave it in their capable hands to allow it to grow and mature. keep an eye on it, there are a lot of cool ideas that should be surfacing in the next few months.
the completely different thing is going to work for a gaming company, electrotank. i’m not much of a gamer myself (aside from lots of mario kart. comment if you’ve got it on the wii as well so we can play!),
it will be an opportunity to learn about an entirely different industry. what i’ll be doing is of course what i’m good at, helping architect/design/build the back-end systems for maintainability and scaling. their core product is built on apache mina, so this will also allow me to spend more time with the community than i had in the past year.
i wish all my past radar colleagues the best, look forward to meeting all my new teammates, and tackling the fun challenges ahead!Tags: changes, electrotank, life, radar
