Today was my last day at Pillar Technology. I had an awesome time learning from the great people I worked with:
- Tim Wingfield (@timwingfield)
- Michael Kramer (@michaelkramer)
- Rebecca Denning (@rebeccadenning)
- Todd Kauffman (@toddkauffman)
- Phil Jordan (@philipjordan)
- Tyler Wymer (@twymer
I learned an incredible amount of time in the short time I was there, especially about Agile practices, TDD, proper spiraling of footballs, to blame Phil for everything, to embrace new technologies- even Apple, and how to pronounce "facade". That's "fuh-cade" with a long "a" and a hard "c". I've begun using vim for everything, I learned how to use Git, and I've picked up ReSharper and a finer understanding of development productivity.
I also, in turn, hope that I leave the team with a finer method of brewing coffee (fill the filter to the top, use fresh water, wash out the pot every time.) The proper times to do this are 9:15, 10:45, and 2:30.
As I move forward in my career to San Francisco, I'll look back upon this time and the knowledge and experienceI've gained, and I hope to retain these relationships.
And I'll continue to blame Phil.
