My How Time Flies

Catching up with the agile coder.

Posted by AgileCoder on February 16, 2012

I spent the better part of my free time the last couple days upgrading this blog from BlogEngine.Net version 1.6 to version 2.5.  It wasn't a seamless or painless upgrade, but it didn't kill me either.  The last 18 months at work tried to do that...

To catch you up, between August 2010 and November 2011 the division/team I supervise was reorganized 3 times as projects and people were shuffled between supervisors.  Part of the reason for this was that we were trying to do a project originally planned for 3 years in about 14 months of active development.  We staffed up to 20 people, split the team, combined units and re-split again... it was a high level of chaos.

In the middle of all that, I fell in love and married the Maestra - best decision of my life! In the process I inherited a lovely college-age daughter and fantastic H.S. age son, to go along with my two boys.

Clearly, blogging consistency is not a strong-suit for me, but over the last 18 months a lot of technical and professional career lessons have been learned, and I hope to do a better job of sharing them with the world.
