Working for Rojo has been an excellent experience for me. In my time there, I have architected and built massive news aggregation systems, feed readers, AJAX components, and social networks. I also lovingly crafted large-scale, distributed data designs for these systems. I have learned a lot from all of the talented people that I worked with.
Recently I put in my two-weeks notice and finished up my work at Rojo. After two Web-2.0-paced years of cranking out a personalized, relevant news system, I’m looking forward to exploring some new challenges. Next, I will be going back into independent software consulting. I am a get-anything-done generalist of course, but I will be specializing in web 2.0 architecture, data design, and scalability.
