New Year, New Role

Yesterday was my last day at the job I’ve been in for most of 2015. Later this month I’ll be joining the digital team at Condé Nast!

I’ve been interested in media, publishing, and journalism since I was a kid, growing up in the office of a local weekly newspaper. Condé is an institution in the media world, and I’m excited to bring my experience from the tech industry to a new set of challenges. Media is in a fascinating, turbulent place right now, and Condé is in a unique position to explore and chart a path for the industry.

There are a number of things that clicked with this opportunity. I’m excited about the specific role and the kind of work I and the team will be doing; about working with JavaScript, and getting more involved with the community; about having more opportunity to talk about the work we’re doing; about diving into a whole new industry. I’ll talk more about the details once I start.

For the next couple of weeks, I’m going to read, give a talk and try to hit some other meetups, play a little catch-up on open source work and email, wrap up a TodaysMeet project I’ve been stalled on, and maybe even finish another blog post (let’s not go crazy though).

Thanks to Scherry and everyone else who helped make this connection. Onward into 2016!
