But Chicago is a big city with some great companies and great talent. I would be remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity in my late 20s to explore what else is out there. I’m very excited that on January 5th, 2012 I’ll be joining Clarity Consulting. The first time I met some of Clarity’s WP7 team was back in October 2010, where we were both invited by Microsoft to speak at the Chicago Windows Phone launch party. They have worked on some really impressive software over the years, and I very much look forward to joining a group well known for their talent and passion for leading edge technology solutions.
But before all that, I decided to take a month to myself. So I have December off. I’m going to be nerding out. A lot. Many of you have recommended I go on vacation, but with my girlfriend just starting a new job and unable to take time off, she would be pretty bitter if I disappeared somewhere exotic for two weeks. Ultimately, I love coding, and I am honestly very excited to work on code that I want to… for an entire month.
And it’s actually off to a pretty good start, some of which includes…
I know what you’re thinking: I need time away from the computer. I’ll do that too. I greatly look forward to unwinding back home in Michigan for a week around Christmas!
Thanks again to everyone at Triton-Tek for an awesome near half-decade!
Thanks to all of you who read my ramblings on here every few weeks!
Thanks to the Chicago dev Community! Rest assured I will still be fully involved in the local community, probably even more-so.
And come on Nokia, help us get Windows Phone the market attention it deserves
