So Long IT, Except Not Really

Wow! How long has it been since I last posted? It’s been a hectic half year, and now it’s time for a little introspection. I’ve changed careers, in a sense, to embark on some new things. For those of you who don’t know me, I’ve spent a long time in the trenches of enterprise IT. It’s been fun and rewarding, and by no means a bad experience. That being said I have noticed myself growing a bit stir crazy of late.

So, what am I doing exactly? While I’ve left my role as an IT Architect and moved to the dark side. That is Software Development, although I’m still doing IT to an extent. I’ve always worn multiple hats, so why should this be any different.

It will be interesting to be on the other side of the IT/Software relationship though. I expect I’ll have a good deal more to say on that dichotomy…

In the meantime, I’m hoping to get some posts out on some of the things I’ve been playing with lately. Should be some fun things to talk about around Hadoop, R, MongoDB, Moodle, Juju, and MaaS. That is if I ever find more time.
