So, this is my last night in Austin. It’s good that this week has been low key, since I have so much on my mind it’s hard to sit still. Getting ready to head to Cleveland next week for a new project which seems to be pretty cool. It’s a .NET project which I enjoy, although I will be working in a business analyst capacity.
Jen is in San Fran this week on an interview for a possible new job out there. If all goes well we could be moving to California! This just blows my mind, but I am excited at the same time since we have both always wanted to try living there. I am very excited for her as it seems this is an opportunity she will really enjoy.
In other news, this weekend is Nukes’ Bachelor Party in Atlantic City, so Saturday night should prove to be an extremely crazy experience. It’s not often that I have a guys night out anymore, and this one will probably get ugly. You’ve got to love that.
What else….Current reads:
Diary by Chuck Palahniuk – So far so good, in the typical Chuck style. I have been so busy, I didn’t even know this one was coming out, so I had to scoop it the other day. It’s moving fast though.
Also, Software Factories by Jack Greenfield and Keith Short – If you’re into test driven development, continuous integration, model driven architectures and design patterns….this is where they all intersect, at least in theory. I’m still trying to visualize it all in practice, but I guess that I will understand more as we get closer to Visual Studio Team System.
In the news, I’m not sure if anyone has been following up on this story about North Korea financing an information warfare program, but there seems to be some new information that they may actually try to gain a backdoor into western corporate networks via Australia. Check this out: Australia vulnerable to Korean hacking army.
Finally…If you read about my adventures with the Texas Roller Derby teams a couple weeks back, you can take a look at what these crazy gals are up to on their website: Texas Roller Derby.
