I’ll be writing about this more here before long, but it’s been a challenging couple months as I make the transition from programming almost exlusively in PHP (while longing to work with mod_perl) to exclusively in Java. It’s a whole different world.

If you want to be a part of that world, I encourage you to apply for positions open in the team I work on. Unless you’re a moron, in which case I’d prefer you stay away. We’re starting to do some cool stuff. For the last couple months, we’ve been working on building a clean architectural foundation and introducing agile processes to our workflow, breathing new life into the reigning development model here. We’ve got a new web development supervisor starting in a couple weeks, so there are still some unknowns, but he seems like a very cool guy to work with, very hip to the sorts of things that can be done with web apps. See the ad in the Star Tribune and let me know if you have any questions.
