That escalated quickly…

Well, that escalated quickly….

New house, new job (involving a platform rewrite), daughter in her senior year… I’m not even sure where 2015 went! Here I am, almost a year after I started this blog with nothing but my first post to show for it. Lame.

The good news is that I’ve learned a lot this past year. I’ve got some Symfony2 experience under my belt. I’ve helped design and lay the application groundwork that has boosted the productivity of an amazing team of developers giving us what is looking like a very sustainable platform. I can say with confidence that I am no longer a git novice. I’ve done more server administration than I ever thought I would do. I’ve even dove into the deep end of release management and managed to stay afloat.(Thank you, Jenkins!)

Somewhere in there, I let people in the @SoFloPHP group convince me to give a local talk… and then I let them somehow convince me to submit it for @SunshinePHP! I’m actually lucky enough to have been selected to speak. So that’s happening in a few days… woot!

I’m back to try this again. I’m hoping this time it sticks. We’re approaching our production launch at work, so it’ll just get easier after that? Right? (It’s okay to lie to me.)
