It’s Official

It’s been announced by everyone, and the date’s been set. I’m moving to my new department on April 8th, leaving behind only three projects. The rest are coming with me, which is what makes this so odd.

First, I didn’t go looking for the job – it came to me. Second, I’m going to a department that I’ve worked with for almost three years and have almost become a part of twice. So, it doesn’t feel like much will change. The biggest change will be leaving behind the group I work with now. They’re a great group of guys, and I’ll miss them. But, I can’t stay just because I like them. I’ve done everything I could do in my current job and more.

It’s time to find a new challenge, and getting involved in the nitty-gritty of search and trying to change the philosophy of the group I’m going to is a pretty big challenge. So, you know it now too. You’ll probably be hearing a lot more from me about why I love search applications, and I may even share some cool code with you (that’s not used at work… just something I wrote for fun). Keep yer eyes peeled for that, and of course, the FlatCat book.
