I'm Andy Lester, and I like to test stuff. I also write for the Perl Journal, and do tech edits on books. Sometimes I write code, too.

My new job

[ #28224 ]

Today was my 15-year anniversary with Follett Corporation, with the last five at Follett Library Resources. Today, I also gave my two-week notice.

Everybody at work was dumbfounded. Pete thought I was making it up.

I'm going to be working with Socialtext. It's exciting to have the opportunity to work for a Silicon Valley startup, without having to move to California. It will be great to work with a bunch of Perl friends that I already know (Casey West, Ingy, Dave Rolsky, Kirsten Jones), and even more cool folks that I only know a bit so far. The stuff they're doing with enterprise-level collaborative software really grabs me, and I think it's the way software development is going to go in the next decade.

It's going to be radically new, since I've been working for sizable companies for 20 years, and now I'm going to a startup. But it's also going to be the same thing I do now, working through IRC and AIM with a lot of open source projects.

I'm psyched.
