Announcing my Amazee adventure

Announcing my Amazee adventure

Last December, I spent a week in Zurich with the Amazee Labs team. We explored everything from strategy to process to professional development. When the week ended, Greg and Dania committed to opening Amazee Labs Austin. I accepted the role of CEO. Today, the official announcement has been made.

2014 promises to be an exciting year! We began developing the Austin company in mid-January and are now in full swing. Amazee Labs (Austin) is the sister company of Amazee Labs Zurich and Amazee Metrics, led by Greg Gerhardt as Chairman of Amazee Holdings. The three companies cooperate with and compliment each other, bringing web clients more than they expect and all that they deserve. I know this description sounds salesy but trust me, the teams are that damn good.

Working with the Amazee Labs team has been energizing and inspiring. We are training at DrupalCon Austin. And our new Drupal 8 site launched today! If you are at DrupalCon Austin, come by our lounge and say hello. We’d love to talk about our new adventure.

Austin’s primary focus will be on Drupal 8. We hope to make D8 sites function elegantly and look beautiful. The Austin team already has two talented people working towards this goal: Andrew and Kathryn McClintock. Together with the Zurich devs and our soon-to-be growing team, we are excited to discover with our clients the strengths (and tender spots) of Drupal 8. We will also (happily) continue building Drupal 7 and maintaining Drupal 6 sites for the next few years.

The Drupal community, the Austin Drupal community especially, have been my professional lifeblood and I am gratified to remain part of both. The highlight of my career remains this: I keep the esteemed company of brilliant, passionate, committed, and thoughtful people. Add some good process and hard lessons learned … and everything good flows from there.
