Three Thoughts on My First Month at CITYTECH
Thursday, June 11, 2009
Well, today marks my one-month anniversary with CITYTECH. I came aboard as CITYTECH’s Marketing Communications Manager a few weeks ago and have already seen so many exciting things happening around here – a couple new, big clients, a few IT networking socials, and lots of things in the works. I thought now might be a good time to share some observations.
Working with smart people really makes my job easy.
CITYTECH consultants do a fabulous job of marketing themselves. Sten Anderson, for example, just had his (awesome) Music Explorer FX JavaFX app (more on that in a future post…) included in the keynote at JavaOne last week as one of the first apps in the brand new Java App Store. Bill Gloff’s blog post on Groovy got reposted on GroovyBlogs and on DZone. I could go on, but I won’t. CITYTECH consultants: thanks for being so smart. It really helps me out.
The stereotype of the anti-social tech geek needs to be put to bed.
Maybe that was true at one point, but I think those days are behind us. Some of the coolest, most innovative people I’ve met lately have been tech “geeks.” Being into tech gadgets got cool years ago and these are the people behind the scenes working on the next hip thing. Case in point: The line for Apple’s WWDC earlier this week wrapped around the block. Hello people, tech is cool.
Tech consultants don’t sleep
At least I see little evidence that CITYTECH consultants sleep. Oh, you know, after working all day building some amazing application that is going to make a client’s business run smoother, I just whipped up this iPhone app. After dinner. For fun.
