If I haven’t already given you an ecstatic phone call or instant message, then I should tell you that I’ve just accepted an offer from Zmanda as a design engineer. I feel really lucky with this; as I’m going to be working in my most familiar language (Perl) to make some fairly robust code user-friendly. I’ll be heading up a new project to investigate adding a new open-source project to our lineup; so I’ll be in a lot of murky waters, but it’s going to be a lot of fun to work with, and give I’ll have the opportunity to collaborate while being fairly autonomous.
I’m sure I’ll be blogging more about the crazy things I’m going to end up doing in Perl as a result. Object-oriented Perl is simple yet quite bizarre, so it’ll be an interesting experience to delve further into its depths. I also have a couple fun ideas for some perl modules, so keep your eyes open.
