Vodori Retrospective

My departure

I've had a great run here at Vodori. I've been here for a year and change. My role evolved from "markup producer" to nearly full-fledged "front-end developer". I even tried my hand at project management (thank you, Scott giving me a chance)!

However, the universe was giving me chances that I would regret passing up.

I've learned a lot

To say I've learned a lot while working here would be a gross understatement. Through my project work, consulting others, and being consulted, I've greatly grown my skills in:

  • Javascript
  • CSS and Preprocessors
  • HTML
  • Git
  • Atlassian Product Suite
  • Agile Methodology
  • Cross Browser Optimization
  • Graceful degradation
  • Mobile Device Optimization

Bittersweet

While I'm excited about what's next, it will be bittersweet to move out of Chicago. I've really enjoyed living here, and I've made some wonderful friends. It was great to be around such intelligent, talented, and driven people at Vodori. It was an invaluable experience that shaped my career, and life for the better. To anyone from Vodori that might be reading this, Thank you!
