After a brief respite over the next few weeks, I’ll be joining Opscode in September. Not only am I excited about working with such a great group of people, but also for the incredible opportunity of getting to work on problems whose solutions are already beginning to permanently change how we build systems.
After all, we should be solving life’s more difficult problems, not passing our days as a cog in a machine of repetitious activity. When skilled and respected humans become mere automatons of deployment tasks; we’ve slipped into a dismal place. There is boundless room out there for innovation, but we need a dependable platform on which to build.
I’m joining Opscode to help craft this reality. I want to help you find meaning in these tools; how they will make your life easier. Don’t confuse this end as simply being able to work faster, it’s about working better.
