Yep, I decided to leave Adobe and move on. Last year the Adobe evangelist team got restructured, I ended up working in engineering and finally got a little time to breathe. I mean evangelism was a hell of a ride for an ‘introverted geek’ and it stretched me to the limit. But I must admit that I loved doing this … well maybe except the crazy traveling.
One Sunday morning I woke up, sat on the edge of my bed and asked myself: “Now WHAT?”. I realized that I really love coding but I also like giving presentations, teaching and what you can generally call ‘knowledge transfer’ activities … and I like also the business side of the technology too. Thus the engineering side only filled up half of it … maybe a little more cause I really love coding .
So I decided to stop, take a break (as I realized that I’ve spent none of my last year’s legal holidays) and look for a new challenge. That’s because I just couldn’t come up with a good answer to the “now what?” question and I realized that I might need to do some experiments to find out.
