That's right folks, I'm moving to Denver. My short but life changing time here in Virginia has taught be a few serious lessons, the most important being that no matter what, you have to respect your instincts and remember what keeps you happy. I took a chance coming here, and though "someone" thinks I didn't give enough to make it work (debatable, but I think I did), I'm not happy. Denver has been calling my name for years; it's time to find out.
I'm packing up my bedroom furniture, tv/stereo, computer, couple Ikea chairs, and three bikes and heading to LoDo to crash with a good friend and get m'self a job and a place to live in the city somewhere, maybe Highland or City Park or Wash Park or hell, maybe even Englewood or DU depending on where the job is. One criterion for the job will be bike friendliness and bike-commutable, of course
--short job plug: I'm a veteran web applications guy, currently in C# and asp.net. Can do it all, from reqs to architecture to implementation to QA. Have been a tech lead, analyst, code jock, some PM duties. Believe in having a formal process backbone (currently RUP), but refuse to be paralyzed by it. Comfy with internal and external clients. Have that rare knack of explaining techie stuff to non-techies. Have been told I should teach. end job plug---
So, Snowy, LordOpie, telenick and all you Colorado folks, make room. There's another bike geek heading to Menver---
