Experiences and Experiments in Programming

Wow...I know I am not the best poster...ok, I am a horrible poster, but it has been a whirlwind while since my last post.  There has been so much I wanted to post about and have not had the time.  For those that might be reading this, and are interested, you might ask why.

For those of you that know me personally, you know that I have been the CISO at Softech Development for many years.  The CEO and I have been friends since we worked together in the mid 90s and had talked back then about starting a company and venturing out on our own.  It has been a great ride with lots of ups and downs, but overall rewarding, and at times, down right exciting!

As of December 12, I decided to get off the roller coaster and begin a new adventure.  I am now working for DAXKO, in Birmingham, AL.  I am the .NET Development Manager and have a great set of challenges ahead of me, challenges that I think will make for a wonderful adventure.

This move is bitter sweet!  I leave behind great friends and much blood, sweat, and tears.  Softech, and all of its employees, has been a second family to me.  A big part of my decision was to allow me to focus more on my family.  My beautiful wife and wonderful children (not that my wife is not wonderful :)) have often times been neglected and placed lower on the priority totem pole than they should be.

Of course this change has meant many other changes like transitioning email, new machine setups, etc.  So over the few weeks I have been trying to get these transitions completed (or at least far enough along to get by day to day).  I also decided to take a technology vacation over the Christmas holidays.  I didn't crack the laptop for over a week.  It actually felt good!!!  I would recommend it to anyone!

So I am now pretty much back to being "connected" everywhere and look forward to getting caught up on all the changes and updates that I have missed over the last month or so!  As we all start a new year, I also start a new chapter in the book of life.  I hope it is a good read!
