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… 😛 )

Welcome back, mate!
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!
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. 🙂
Thanks for the warm welcome, guys!
truly, shane, it’s good to hear you’ll once again be more involved!
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. 🙂
