As hinted on my last post - and as made public by the Toronto User Group announcement a couple of weeks ago - I have, as of today, left the wonderful world of Professional Services and started a new challenge on the also wonderful world of Product Management.

I have been a consultant for almost all of my Professional career (15 of 17 years), and have pretty much covered many of the possible ways of building (in no particular order) email servers, firewalls, Windows domains, user directories (pre- and post-LDAP), TCP/IP addressing strategies, intranets, extranets, internet, collaboration servers, application servers, transformation services, open source, closed source, free, expensive, sgml, html (2,3,4 & 5), wml, xml, xhtml, VB, VBA, VBScript, C, C++, Informix 4gl, Clipper, PL/SQL, xslt, collaboration strategies, workflow processes, automation - from factory to work processes, so many integration frameworks, c#, java, php, javascript, data management (big and small data), structured and unstructured data, search engines, recommendation engines, monitoring engines, migration tools, social media, rss, odata, oauth, unix servers, websphere, weblogic, tomcat, jboss, iis, apache, wcf, wwf, xaml, saml, browser debugging tools, memory debugging tools, network debugging tools, and so much more, and always - throughout all these years - kept my customer first mantra. Customer is always right - except when the customer is wrong, in which case it is my duty to point this out to the customer, so that the customer may be right.

This served me well in the past, and I am counting on this instinct to serve me even better in the future. I am extremely happy about having made this move, and being able to influence the future direction of SDL software - Tridion in particular - while keeping my customers first.

I'll be posting regularly on how this transition goes, and certainly about all the new & exciting stuff we will be building at SDL!

See you all on the other side!
