New job--PCF

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

It's been a chaotic few months... I worked a lot the last two weeks of grad school, got my Masters, got married, went on a honey moon (or toffee moon depending on where you live), pushed out a new version of PyBlosxom, and ... got a job! I'll be a developer on the Democracy Player (soon to be Miro) at Participatory Culture.

I'm really psyched about this. Hopefully it nicely weds my Open Source/Free Software development hobbies with employment. Hopefully it nicely weds the way I like doing software development with the way I have to do it for work. Regardless, it's nice to be working in one major language (Python) rather than two (Java and Python). Also, there's a lot of really neat technology that PCF is using that I haven't worked with before--so it'll definitely be a growing experience.

I start next Monday (July 16th). Because I'll be doing Python development for employment, it'll be a lot easier to focus on Python-oriented things and blog more about Python the language, tools, methodologies and all that, too.
