There’s been quite a lot of reaction to this notice on Agant’s website, that Dave is taking the company back to a one-person shop. Indeed that means that I and all of my colleagues (except Dave) are now redundant.
Sad is not the right word. I’m disappointed that this isn’t going to continue, but it’s hard to be sad about getting onto this billing:
Thanks for all your concern. I’ve already got my next thing lined up: I’m really excited to be programming and training for the Big Nerd Ranch, starting in August. I’ve known Aaron and a few other big nerds for years and I’m sure this is going to be a great opportunity for me.
In the even shorter term, though, hopefully the experience I’ve built with having more jobs than birthdays since graduation can be helpful to our other developers as we collectively discover what comes next.
