An Architect's View

A little frustration

July 29, 2008 ·

I have not been blogging as much as I'd like recently. The truth is that right now I'm working on a bunch of things I can't talk about. We announced that we'd hired Ray Camden, Nicolas Lierman and Joe Rinehart but we can't announce who else we've hired yet (next week, I promise!) and obviously we can't talk about who we're going after next (we're still expanding). We're planning our next generation services (products) we can't talk much about that. Joe has hinted at the analytics work we're doing but we have a roadmap for three distinct Software-as-a-Service products. We'll be talking more about our products later in the year - stay tuned. We're adjusting our technology stack to take advantage of performance, power and expressiveness. Again, I can't really talk about what we're doing in detail but I can say that we have more Java and Groovy code in our SVN repository today than we had a few weeks ago. We're still deeply wedded to Adobe ColdFusion but I think this trend toward Java and Groovy - and Spring and Hibernate - will continue. On the other hand, we're adding Flex to our stack now and looking at AIR. We're just diversifying. We're talking about a Broadchoice team blog where Ray, Joe, Nico, myself and - oh sorry, we can't say yet - will blog about technical issues we hit and (hopefully) solve! This is all just to say the quietness of my blog is temporary and I expect to be back to full volume soon!

    Hire Me! Hire Me! Been using CF since v 1.0!

    (just kidding of course, well maybe not...)

    Can't wait to hear more news of what's going on over there at Broadchoice.

    Wow Sean, congrats on getting so much talent under one roof. Make sure you guys don't go quiet on us because the community needs you lot.

    Best of luck.

    Let the rumors and conspiracy theories begin! :-)

    Seriously you are all building one heck of a team. Will be interesting to learn what other products you are working on.

    I have a software as a service project in mind (not related to what your doing) so I am looking forward to your tech blog and insights.

    ... it's about cats, right? ;-)

    I dont know what's so difficult for you guys to figure out. I knew what they are up to the minute they started.

    They're mounting a take over offer for Adobe, and are already planning CF10, called the Decimal Edition. It's not going to be 32bit or 64 bit. In honour of the Decimal edition they're going to make it a lightning-fast 100bit application.

    It's as plain as the nose on Sean's face.

    What nose? :)

    I thought CF10 was the Binary Edition.
