Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

New Gig starts Monday

It's official - I'll be starting a new gig on Monday. I'll be working on a project at Xcel Energy in downtown Denver. I've always wanted to work downtown - so I'm pretty pumped about it. I had internships there in college, but never worked there in the "Real World". I signed a contract through the end of the year, but it sounds like they have a lot of work, so it could be longer. The best part is I'll be working with Bob Johnson and Bruce Snyder - both good friends of mine.

I met Bob while working on a contract in 2003. We didn't work on the same team, but he was the first AppFuse user I'd ever met. I'll also be working with Jeff Genender, who supposedly has the Tomcat integration done for Geronimo.

I'm definitely looking forward to working on a team again, especially with these guys. I'm thinking of riding my bike to work everyday, but that might have to wait until March. I was going to try and raise money for the tsunami victims by riding no matter what (snow, cold or rain), but I don't know if anyone would donate. It should be an easy 20-30 minute ride when the weather gets nice.
