Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.
I’m no longer part of Reductive Labs. While this development is not quite heart breaking, I am always sad to leave behind something that I care about, but I also understand and feel strongly that this will be better for everyone.
Since raising venture funding, Reductive Labs has been building an adept team. That team has a critical mass in Portland, OR. There are now eight people there and I am tied to Salt Lake City for the near future, and who knows where for the next few years. Staying aligned with everything that Reductive Labs was doing and needed was becoming more and more of a challenge.
Puppet is a great tool and organizations get a lot of value from it. There are some exciting Puppet developments underway which present unique challenges and opportunities for both the technology and the business. I will now watch them from afar.
My involvement with Reductive Labs has been a period of pronounced growth. I learn many lessons about business and technology, that would have been difficult to learn any other way. I thank Reductive Labs and Luke Kanies for sharing the opportunity.
For the next month or so, I’ll spend more time with my family (when I’m not at the climbing gym and getting massages) and sort through a couple ideas.
Maybe there is a good way to combine them all together…
There are a lot of interesting problems in the world… (to solve or cause)
What are you going to do next?
