New adventures

leave a comment »

Some exciting personal news: I’ll be joining the Cedar Rapids Gazette and KCRG as their Interactive News Developer at the end of the month. My last day at the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier is Friday.

The new job will let me develop full time, meaning I will be coding more than I have. And I will continue to work in a newsroom, which is awesome. Needless to say, I’m very excited about the move.

I spent the last three years The Courier, and as this blog shows, I learned a ton in that time span. I will greatly miss working there. And more importantly, I’ve very, very proud of all the awesome work we did while I was there.

Here’s to new adventures!
