By way of the obligatory sorry-I-haven't-blogged-much-lately apologette, I should say that life has been busy this summer. The second biggest deal for me was, get this, moving to New York City. Yes, I know I just moved to a new place in San Francisco, and no, I haven't given up on my favorite city. It's a temporary move and I should be back in SF by the end of the year. What happened is that Pivotal Labs has opened an office in Manhattan, and I've come out to work on client projects and help get the office going. The takeaway on that is that Pivotal Labs is available for projects in New York, and we're also looking to hire top-notch Rails developers to work with us here.
The word I have to pick to describe New York is vital. That's true of the city in general, but from what I've heard it's also true of the Ruby development community. I am looking forward to getting to hang with folks here and see what I can learn from the other coast. There's a lot of Ruby developer events around here. I'm going to start with the nyc.rb hackfest tomorrow.
While I'm out here on the East Coast, I'm going to hit up some conferences. In November I'll be attending RubyConf 2008 in Orlando. Then later that month I'll be at the Voices That Matter: Professional Ruby Conference, giving a talk entitled "Ruby: Fragile or Agile?"
In the mean time, where's the best pizza in New York?
