New job!

So, as I’ve hinted previously, I’ve left Vast to work full-time at a new gig: PutPlace.

I’ll be working on more EC2/S3/SQS-related large-scale cluster stuff, and on their open-source plans… looking forward to that. They’re a great team — lots of familiar faces from the Iona days — and it finally gets me out of telecommuting from home, back into an office again after 5 years ;)

Joe has put up a nice blog post welcoming me. Cheers Joe!

Now to get to grips with Python. (I still love Perl though. ;)

    Congrats Justin,

    Putplace looks a good place.

    One thing: you want to get out of telecommuting? Surely you don’t mean it! :P

    Anyway congrats and enjoy the suit :)

    Congrats Justin. By the way, you might want to let PutPlace know they’ve misspelled ‘digitial’ (sic) in their blog logo…

    Noticed you in the digital hub the other day and we (lincor) were speculating :) We’re in bay 3 BTW.

    regards, Pádraig.

    p.s. You can call in for your old Perl book if you like :)

    Thanks guys!

    @genehack: doh!!

    @bernard: what suit? not a hope of that…

    @Glen and Padraig: I have to drop over alright. I tried to go to your bay but my puny borrowed card won’t let me in. ;) maybe we need to organise a Checkpoint Charlie-style meeting in the middle area….

    hehe, Yeah, the 286 that runs the door security was probably just over loaded ;)

    Hey Justin, nice to hear.

    Your post actually reminded me that I once signed up for an account there so I went to check what has happened. But alas, there’s still no Linux client so its still pretty useless for me. A FUSE client or something like that would be grant. Or does PutPlace use an open protocol like WebDAV? That would rock. Unfortunately there aren’t any infos on the page.

    Cheers, Malte
