End of the road, the start of the unknown

{5 Comments}

It seems like that time of year when people look to the year ahead and decide if they want to find new work and take up new opportunities. For my part, I have spent almost the last two yeas on the rollercoaster ride which is New York City. All in all I have enjoyed my time and feel that it has been pretty successfully – having helped conceive and build Glimpse, delivering projects, speaking at conferences, travelling around the world and generally having a great time.

But the time has come and I’ve made the decision to move back to Australia. I am sad to leave but at the same time excited at the world of possibilities that await. I don’t currently have any work lined up, but by the time I’ve finished traveling and moved back, I’m sure I will find something that I can sink my teeth into. I’m not sure exactly what sort of work I will seek out, but one thing is for sure I love the web, love building interactive sites, working with passionate people and helping make users lives easier. I also know that I love the philosophies behind companies like 37signals, GitHub, etc. So if you know anyone who is looking for a passionate web developer, either show them Glimpse and/or let me know anthony.vanderhoorn{at}gmail.com.

Just incase anyone is worried, one thing I can say for sure is that Glimpse isn’t going anywhere and my passion for has only grown since starting it. In accepting a new job, I will ensure that I will have the ability to continue working on Glimpse and the community. We are currently getting very close to a finalized v1 and have plenty of new and exciting things planned. In addition, I want to continue blogging and speaking, and helping the community that has given so much and I love being a part of.

  1. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

    Glad to have met you. I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon.

    Take care,
    Doug

  2. Mate. I left NYC a bit earlier then you and you are one of the things I truly missed. Along with the esteemed Mr. Finke as well! It’s just not the same being in a city without the both of you.

    All the best in your travels and seriously steer clear of Doug in dark places! ;) -

    Chat soon my friend.
