Pull Requests In The Pacific Northwest
The past couple months here in Portland have gone better than I could have imagined. After only two weeks I met Joe Stump at Urban Airship . He gave me some very encouraging words, and some great advice on working in startups and the tech industry. Through him I met Matt Robenolt, who he worked with on sprint.ly. Fortunatly for me, Matt saw potential in me and brought me on to help out at tixie. I’m amazed at how much I have been able to learn in such a short time. In Lynchburg I was building wordpress themes and geeking over CSS hacks until 2-3am nightly, and working full time as a mechanic. Now I’m contributing to open source projects and building my own web apps.
As much as I enjoyed working with my hands in shops, nothing compares to having a job where you literally learn something daily.
Really rad projects releasing fairly soon, promise.
