Taking Some Time Off

I wanted to let everyone know that I’m going to be taking some time off from Adobe starting next week. I’ve been at Macromedia and then Adobe for over three years, and as far as I can remember, I’ve never taken a vacation, so it’s time. I’m not exactly sure how long I’ll be gone, but at least three months.

I won’t be relaxing during my time off, though. There are way too many cool things going on right now that I want to be a part of. I’ll be focusing on Ruby (on and off Rails), Ajax, mobile, and, of course, Flex 2. I might even start playing around with Flash again, which I haven’t done since I got my first Flex Builder 2.0 build.

I won’t be checking Adobe email or posting here while I’m gone, so I’m going to turn off comments to keep out the riffraff. I can be reached at my personal email address (qantrell@yahoo.com), and you can keep up with what I’m working on through my personal weblog, Living Digitally. Requests and comments relating to MXNA can go to mxna@adobe.com.

I will be staying in the bay area, so if you’re ever in town and want to hang out, drop me a line.

Keep building amazing and inspiring things!

  1. You know we’ll miss ya around the hallways (and virtual spaces), but I do know how golden it is to take a *real* break from the day-to-day chaos once and again. In fact, I prefer an extended ‘hiatus’ over 1-2 week vacations if the option’s available- so won’t deny being a bit envious, too… ;-)See you on XBox Live!

    Are you still planning to attend any conferences over the next few months? I was hoping to meet up again at FITC…Either way, enjoy the vacation!

    Chris, I’m so glad we got to hang out at FF Seattle. I hope you enjoy your well-deserved holiday and I’m personally looking forward (selfishly of course) to the amazing stuff you’ll be doing when you get back. (Has anyone not seen Flow? Guys, you have to check out Flow!) 🙂

  6. Hey Christian – hope you enjoy your time off! All the best! -Rob
