So just over a year ago I got a promotion at PSC and they asked me to go from being a remote worker to working out of the main office. It made sense for both of us and allowed me to learn more about the business, above and beyond developing/managing the projects I already had.
My wife and I moved the family to Schaumburg IL, from Northern Virginia. Everyone said Chicago was a wonderful place and #$!*in’ cold in the winter. They were right.
So another year on and my role has changed again, I am now a Principal Architect at PSC and the chair for the new Technical Committee. My role is designed to allow me and PSC to grow technically, improve overall delivery, support new sales opportunities and starting looking to new technologies on the horizon. I honestly have the role I have always wanted, not just the job(s) I could do. I am really excited.
Over the past few months ago things have been hectic in the XPages team at PSC. As well as the new role I have also inherited a number of responsibilities around our IBM technologies, vacated by Andrew when he moved on to a new position. I have broadened my outlook on technical stack, created my first Azure node.js application, created a docker container for the first time and created my first Cloud Hybrid application. The list of things I want to play with got a lot longer……!
As of this week are the busiest we have ever been with 6 full time XPages developers working on exciting projects ranging from Domino / Google Drive integration to a Bootstrap-enabled XPiNC application enabling offline project management work in rural Africa.
Joining PSC was the best thing I have ever done for myself, professionally. Moving to Schaumburg a year ago was the right thing to do and the right time.
I am really excited………and having so much fun 🙂
