Well, I had some good news today. Here’s the email from our CEO that says it all:
I’d like to announce some changes in the R & D organization:
Jason will be changing positions as he is moving to the newly created “Principal Developer” position. Technology and the marketplace are changing fast. Jason will be helping me set the technical direction of the company. He will work on the most complex technical projects and provide technical leadership to the entire organization. Jason has been with the company 12 1/2 years and has vast institutional knowledge. Over those years, I have developed a high regard for Jason’s technical skills and judgement. He will be reporting to me as we continue to work together.
I am promoting Wyatt to Programming Manager. All of Jason direct reports will now report to Wyatt. Wyatt has earned all of our respect during his 3 years at Inspiration working on our products. During that time, he has learned our technology and is now leading our move to Agile methodologies. Prior to working at Inspiration, Wyatt was Director of Engineering at Riverdeep/Edmark. He brings a wealth of experience to Inspiration.
Please wish Jason and Wyatt success in their new positions.
So, I’m back to managing again. The manager jokes may now commence.
