There have been some changes around here and as a result, I have a new job within Embarcadero. I am now an R&D Manager on the RAD Studio team, working more closely with the development team to ensure that we deliver a feature rich, stable, high-quality product. I’ll be writing feature specifications, managing the development process, and ensuring that we are doing the right things at the right time. As Product Manager, I was involved to a certain level with the product as it was developed, but my main focus was on the product after it shipped. Now, I’m totally focused on managing the people, process and the project itself to ensure that we ship on time, on target. I’m pretty psyched, because when you get right down to it, I’m really a geek at heart and so being totally immersed in the development process is awesome.
Fear not — I’ll still be blogging and hanging around in the community. I am of course always available to hear about your issues, questions, and problems – that won’t change. There is a new Product Manager who will be letting himself be known soon enough, and I can quite happily say that Delphi will be in capable hands.
