What can I say? It's been one hell of a ride with the Quest Software family. I'll use the standard cliche of "All good things must come to an end", and for me, that day has finally come. As of June 15th, I have officially listed myself as a Free Agent. It was not an easy decision, as Quest has been like a family to me, but after talking with my family, the decision was made to spend 100% of my time looking for new employment. I want to thank all of the customers, partners, and the virtualization community as a whole for the support they've provided both Quest and myself over the last 6+ years.
My first week of unemployment was actually quite busy, as I'm already chasing down two fantastic opportunities that align extremely well to my strengths and personal goals. This week, I'm volunteering some time to help out an old friend by injecting some ideas and input into a product that I think has a TON of potential, but is currently underserved in the virtualization market. For those that are interested, check out PowerVI from DevFarm Software and tell me what you think!
Since I've got nothing else to do besides the basics like "Find a job" and "Spend time with the family", expect to actually see a little activity around here while I start to get my name back out in the public, vs. having all of my work be extremely private!
The good thing about being unemployed is that it does make the whiteboard task list a hell of a lot easier.
Congrats on the new job. I just had to comment - is that a PRS next to a Marshall combo amp I spy in the corner?
Fellow guitarist/hobbyist here and think it awesome finding other IT guys doing the same! I post guitar articles on my blog from time-to-time so you should check it out if interested.
