It's been a year since I shut down the blog. I'm finally starting to settle in at my new company so I thought it would be a good time to get going again with the blog. I can't believe a year has gone by so fast.
The IT shop is much smaller than my previous one but the intensity is much higher. I was brought in to jump start the webMethods practice and that's what we have done over the past year. I've spent most that time developing rather than architecting and it's been a blast. There is just something about being hands on that just can't be beat.
In addition to webMethods, I'm really focused on Web Services right now and in particular XML Schema design. Stay tuned for more on that.
