Four months and a lot of lines of code later, I’m back at Adobe. Same company, new job. I’m now working on the Apollo team as an Apollo Application Developer. That means my job is to write Apollo applications as Apollo itself is being developed in order to:
- Give the Apollo team feedback on APIs and other aspects of the runtime.
- Help advise the team on how developers are going to want certain features implemented.
- Exercise the Apollo APIs and look for bugs and usability problems.
- Create a bunch of apps and code libraries that I will give away as sample apps and building blocks for new Apollo projects.
I had a great time while I was off and learned quite a bit about a lot of different technologies which was both refreshing and rejuvenating. When it was time to come back to Adobe, I really wanted to find a job that let me maintain the same level of excitement about what I would be working on day to day. Adobe has a lot of very cool technology in the works right now, but I really think Apollo is especially interesting and has a tremendous amount of potential. I’ll be blogging more about Apollo as I learn more myself.
