Change of Scenery

Every once in a while you need to make a life-altering decision. Last night I sent an email to the ObjectSharp team telling them I had resigned (I had spoken to the bosses in person prior). Boy, talk about blunt, eh? Every once in a while you are offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to do something pretty amazing. I’ve had three of these opportunities. The first was Woodbine Entertainment where I got my start in the Toronto development world. The second was ObjectSharp where I have been able to learn so much from some of the brightest minds…

More Changes to this Site

Due to the fact that the hosting provider I was using for Syfuhs.net was less than stellar, (names withheld to protect the innocent) I’ve decided to move the blog portion of this site to blogs.objectsharp.com. With any luck the people subscribing to this site won’t see any changes, and any links directly to www.syfuhs.net should 301 redirect to blogs.objectsharp.com/cs/blogs/steve/. As I learned painfully of the problems with the last migration to DasBlog, permalinks break easily when switching platforms.  With any luck, I will have that resolved shortly. Please let me know as soon as possible if you start seeing issues….

Act II: New Opportunities

Sometime last week I sent out an email to quite a few people: As is the way of things in the tech industry, jobs change.  More specifically, mine. Sometime around October 1st this email will be turned off as I am starting a new position with ObjectSharp working with some of the brightest minds in Toronto.  If you need to get in touch with me after that date you can do it through a few channels.  My personal email is steve@syfuhs.net, which gets checked more often than it should, and my O# email will be ssyfuhs@objectsharp.com. Cheers Steve Syfuhs, MCP…
