It has been too long since my last post, for which there are a number of reasons.
- Super Computing 2007
- Vacation Preparation
- New Job
I head to Reno, Nevada early tomorrow morning for SC07. I have been trying to get my research ready for presentation. Hopefully this year will be as fun and interesting as last.
The day after I get back from Reno, my girlfriend and I are flying to Aruba for ten days.
There is a lot of preparation when I will essentially be gone for fifteen days. This should be a nice break compared to the bedlam to come.
I resigned. When I get back from Aruba, I will be working my last week as a Software Developer for NAVTEQ. I will be moving 2529 miles from Philadelphia to Spokane, WA to take the role of Software Quality Assurance Director for PlayXPert.
I will be doing software architecture, software development, developer management, project management, system administration, continuous integration, QA management, and other tasks.
Along with the new job comes moving. I work for one week, during which I need to pack every morning and night ( as I will be gone for the two weeks prior ) which leaves no room for anything. I start Monday, December 3rd.
This come as a stumbling block for my Ensurance project on CodePlex. It is stable, fully featured, and usable, but I will not be able to work on it for a month which really pains me. The only pieces missing are the distribution tasks such as strong naming, finishing internationalization, and such. I was really looking forward to implementing the full set of fluent parameter attributes, but there is a minimal implementation right now.
I will try to post from SC07 with anything that I find.
