Wow! It's been a wild ride since Google acquired the company I was working for in Orlando. Now I find myself clear across the country to take a role at Microsoft! I never saw this career trajectory for myself but am enjoying it while I can. I'm happy to talk to anyone how this was even possible and a now trying to figure out how to get more involved in the communities around the Puget Sound.

Congrats, Jack! I bet you have some great stories to tell about your company being acquired by Microsoft. Microsoft has changed so much. Now, they're involved in open source. And, how about the free upgrade to Windows 10! Puget Sound must be a wonderful area to live. I see you're involved in theater. Would you consider giving a video talk and posting it on YouTube with a link here?

Chris Schaefer is the new JUG leader in Sarasota and he's a nice guy who knows his stuff, especially about Spring. Plus, he's a brewmaster. Look forward to lots of good times.

Hi Jack, Glad you could join us. OJUG meets every 4th Th except this month. I'll put meeting announcements in the Codetown Events section. BTW, tonight is a fun event to take the place of this month's local meeting - a beer and meetup night in Sarasota.

Life's better without braces,



Happy 10th year, JCertif!
