I have been in IT professionally for over fourteen years. I’ve gone from software development to managing a small IT department and back into software development. I’ve been in software development for eight years. In that time, I’ve seen a lot.
In my current position as manager of a software development team, there have been a lot of changes. We’ve gone from developing off of an SVN trunk to Git and branching. We’ve gone from no tests to 80% coverage on all new code. We now have continuous integration and are working towards continuous delivery. When I look back at where we were, it’s amazing how far the team has come.
I listed to podcasts, read books and blogs concerning software development. I’m always looking for the next challenge.
