The following had been sitting in my drafts folder since March 2012.
After 19 months at Lockerz, I’ve made the jump to another Seattle startup called Skytap. They provide “cloud automation solutions,” basically a tool that allows you to create weather on the fly. 😉 Ahh, too tired to explain cloud computing.
I was excited about the job for a few reasons:
- New technology: Ruby on Rails, backbone.js
- Better setup for front-end development … mock services, and using our own tools to create test environments. For example, I can fire up IE6 in a virtual machine in the cloud, connect to the VPN, and view the Rails site on my own desktop. Top that.
- Better planning. We typically do one release per month.
