Strange New World

As of yesterday, I'm now a Windows Presentation Foundation, desktop application developer by day. I've not given up on ColdFusion or anything like that, its just a simple matter of the economy: I can't move, and there aren't any ColdFusion jobs around where I live. The new position will train me in WPF, and also the underlying .NET framework, and those are skills that I can actually use around here.

I'll still be doing CF on the side, and hopefully moving back into a web based environment sometime soon, so I'm not going to stop posting on web topics. I just want to post some explanation for when the Adobe using ColdFusion guy starts making posts on .NET and Microsoft stuff.

Ben Nadel's Gravatar Jon, good luck with your new job. I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of good conversations the .NET world can bring to the table.
Jon Hartmann's Gravatar Thanks Ben! I'll need all the luck I can get to learn all of this stuff in a timely fashion. I'm also looking into diving into .NET more, to see exactly how it stacks up to ColdFusion for web development. I've looked into PHP, RoR, and a number of others, but .NET is all new.
Sean Sekora's Gravatar Hi Jon, Best of luck with your new job. What company is it with?
Jon Hartmann's Gravatar Sean, its with Matthews International in Kingwood. I actually work for Mark LaPointe, which is neat.
