Back to Python, Zope, and Plone

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… 😛 )

  1. We’ve not met, but I’ve seen your name all over chunks of interesting-looking code and people speak of you in hushed tones. Welcome back! Can’t wait to see what you’ve got up your sleeve!

  2. Shane – good to hear you’re back. You were never really entirely gone – RelStorage counts as rather “back” to me already. Also hope to hear some more feedback from you about Grok stuff. 🙂

  3. Wow, congrats!

    I’d still like to work with you some day. Maybe you’ll hire me in a couple years. It’s unlikely that I’ll get into Zope any other way. 🙂
