For the past year and a half, I have had the opportunity to work with Gerry Laybourne. She is my hero. She inspires me as a developer, creator and woman. Today, she gave a speech at the Microsoft Women's Conference. I wasn't able to go, but was able to read a copy. Her words are strong, truthful and inspiring. She harnesses everything I love about technology and why being a woman in this field is challenging and special.

Gerry is leaving Oxygen at the end of the year. The idea of creating software at Oxygen without Gerry seems unimaginable. But like any change, sometimes you don't think you're ready until you take the next step.

I hope to one day inspire someone the way Gerry has inspired me.

Fairfield/Westchester code camp

I will be at presenting a session on Testing with Mocks at the the Westchester/Fairfield code camp on November 11.

Register here

The session is a shortened version of the tutorial Oksana and I are giving at the Agile Development Practices conference in December.

Hope to see you there!

Oh! my...

Oxygen Media was acquired by NBC Universal yesterday.

What does that mean for me?

I have no idea. Daniel says it well:

These things always work out, and I’m looking forward to whatever will happen.
