I'm Free(lance)

As posted on my work blog.

It's seems like only 8 month ago that I was leaving a job. It's just too much fun to switch around my insurance and investment plans, I guess.

I've had a great time at AMC. I proved to myself I can be happy being a developer full-time--something that worried me after five years as a program manager at Microsoft.

I'll miss working with Paul and David. Working day-to-day with David has been amazing. One of the hardest working and sweetest guys I know. He's made be a better developer and probably a better person.

What's next?

On June 16 I enter the wonderful, terrifyingly independent world of software consulting and freelancing.

My first gig will be helping out some good friends and former MS co-workers at Jackson Fish Market.

You'll hear all about the project when it's done. All I can say now: Ruby on Rails and a little Flash.

I can't wait to hear the comments about either leaving or go to the dark side.

Yes, I've been spending time at the Apple Store. Scary.

No, I'm not giving up the MS stack. I'm hoping to have the chance to do consulting and freelance work in WPF and Silverlight, too.

While I'm likely booked for over a month, I'll be looking for gig+1, +2, etc. shortly.

If you would like to chat about my services, please drop me an line: edeya9902(at)sneakemail(dot)com.

In the mean time, happy hacking.
