This is just a quick news post to let everyone know the big news related to my place of employment. As of today, I am officially a Commerce Guy. I'll take time later today to post more of the personal decision making and excitement behind the move to my personal blog, but since the news is already in the open I thought we should address it here.
As the article explains, I'll be continuing my role as lead developer, co-maintainer w/ "the Lyle," community wrangler, cheer leader, etc. in my new job. Part of the company's vision, and therefore part of my job description, is to continue to lower the barrier for entry for new contributors to Ubercart. We want to make it easier and easier for more folks to get their hands dirty providing support, writing and updating documentation, and creating and testing patches for improvements to the core code.
The Ubercode will continue to develop and move forward. We'll be pushing out another release by the end of the week, and we're planning some mad Uberhacking for the code sprint at Drupalcon DC. Make sure to find us so we can all share some food, drinks, and beta testing. I'd love to have a release candidate prepared by the end of the sprint.
Because I can't totally leave out personal comments, I will say that it's awesome to wake up in the morning and start work without ever leaving the bed. It really renews my appreciation for wireless internet.
