I’m excited to finally announce that I have embarked upon a new adventure! Today marks my first day as a MobileFirst Developer Advocate for IBM!
So, what does that mean?
It is very similar to what I was doing back at Adobe focusing on developers. I’m excited to engage with the development community around building mobile apps and leveraging cloud services to meet critical business needs. I’ll be focused on IBM’s MobileFirst platform, including Worklight – a platform for building and delivering mobile applications leveraging Apache Cordova (PhoneGap), and Bluemix – IBM’s scalable cloud computing platform, which can be used for everything from hosted services, “big data”, security, back-ends for mobile apps, Java, node.js, ruby, and much, much more… Seriously, check out everything that Bluemix has to offer.
It is my mission to help you, the developer or business decision maker be successful, and now I have access to IBM’s tools, knowledge and services to back me up!
Will I still be building apps and services?
- YES – stay tuned for more info
Will I still be helping you build apps, and writing about development tools, paradigms, and best practices?
- YES – it’s my mission to help you make the right decisions and be successful
Will I see you at the next development conference, hackathon, or meetup?
- YES, and I can’t wait to show you everything IBM has to offer.
Will I still be flying drones?
- Of course! However, I won’t be blogging about drones and creative tools quite so much. Follow me on Flickr to see images from my latest flights, and feel free to ask me questions.
I had a great run with Adobe, and am thankful for all of the opportunities while there. I worked on many amazing projects, worked with a lot of great (and very, very smart) people, and was able to continually push the envelope on both the development and creative/media sides. For which I am grateful.
Now, let the next adventure commence!
