A Personal Note – Moving On…

image

In our industry it is common to have a number of jobs during the course of your career. I’ve benefitted from my experiences at PBS, Citibank, Ziff Davis, AT&T and Microsoft to name just a few.

In recent years I’ve had the privilege to be a Technical Evangelist for Microsoft and for Telerik. But I’m a programmer at heart and have felt a strong desire to get back to coding.

I’ve had a great time at Telerik, where I had a chance to work with outstanding people and extraordinary products. But I’ve been offered a job with Falafel Software, a Telerik partner,  and I can’t resist the chance to spend more of my time on hard-core programming.

At Falafel, I’ll be consulting, training and programming. I’ll also be continuing my blog, my podcast, my writing and creating courses for Pluralsight. Falafel is a world-class organization with amazing people, and this was an opportunity far too perfect to turn down.

Thank you all, for your on-going support and interest. The next few years should be very interesting. I look forward to learning and writing more about Windows 8.1 as well as HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, One ASP.NET, Mobile and much more.

    Jesse, I definitely know what it’s like to feel the call to build real software again. I find a need a cycle between product development and product evangelism to be happy. I was glad to get to work with you on your most recent evangelism cycle and I hope we get to work together in your new development cycle. Enjoy slinging that code!

  5. Jason says:

    Congrats, good luck, and I’ll see you when we cross paths again!

    Without building stuff, you often loose sight of the fringe cases that those of us who are building stuff bump our heads into every day. Good luck with Falafel. I’ve used their eventboard and have been impressed with what I’ve seen.
