Moving to San Francisco

December 3, 2011

In January Liz and I will will be making the move to San Francisco. I will be joining Atlassian’s marketing team in San Francisco, squarely focused on the Agile software development space.

This is bittersweet opportunity for me. I will be working with an excellent crew in San Francisco, and I’ve got so much to learn. On the other hand it means leaving the¬†GreenHopper team on a day to day basis, the team absolutely rocks – I love you guys.

First up in the new role is getting out The Kaizen Project, a site with guides and tips for those teams which are new to Agile and those which are looking to continually improve their development practices. I can’t wait to get this out there, and share the behind the scenes details.

On a disappointing note I won’t be heading to Agile India in February. My talk got accepted but it looks like the E-3 visa will arrive in January which means Liz and I will be right in the middle of relocation come early February. Next time. Bryce Johnson of the Atlassian Build Engineering team will be speaking, as will Patrick Debois of the Hosted Infrastructure Team, put them on your list to meet and greet.

Tips for restaurants or squash courts in San Francisco? Let me know in the comments below or via Twitter. Cheers!
