I’ve been writing code for the family history department of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for the last 4+ years. It has been a good experience and I feel like I’ve contributed and learned a lot, but now I have a new opportunity with my family that I shouldn’t pass up. My family business is now doing software consulting! And guess what kind of consulting offers we’re getting? It’s all Python, Zope, and Plone! I’m really happy about that. I feel like working in Python gives us a good chance to advance the state of the art.
Our first full time gig starts in December. It will involve a lot of work with RelStorage, which is another cool bonus. We expect the work to take six months, maybe a little more. Among other work, we are going to make RelStorage rock on MySQL (even more than it does already).
I also need to tie up some loose ends on RelStorage: I need to integrate the optimized Oracle queries, finish setting up the test environment, and release 1.1. (It’s about time, eh? Version 1.1c2 has been out there a long time. Blame Java… 😛 )
