Getting My Mojo Back

I just finished spending over 60 days without a steady gig. I did some contract work, but nothing long term.

I’m happy to report that I have a steady development contract with a Chicago based company.

I’ll be working remotely with regular trips to the office. This opportunity plays to my strengths while still providing opportunity in new technologies.

The most significant change I’ve noticed after starting this contract is that I feel more outgoing. Looking for work wears me down, and I had started to withdraw without realizing it.

I actually gave four presentations during the first quarter of the year, but I never felt motivated to blog about them. I’ve been having a great time showing people the ASP.NET MVC framework, and the support for test-driven development that it provides.

If you’re interested in hearing me talk about these topics, you can come by the NashDotNet meeting tonight. I will be giving an intro and a deep dive on TDD with the MVC framework at the Indianapolis Code Camp so mark your calendar.

Cheers,
