I have rejoined Cvent to help guide their Portland group as part of their software architecture team. Cvent provide world class solutions for planning and managing events across a wide variety of industries. My role is to guide their software development efforts and help set technical strategy.
Taking a Break
Before I came back I did something I haven’t done in two decades. Not since I first entered the software industry have I taken a break between jobs. It sounds silly, but I just hadn’t ever found a good opportunity to take a break so I just kept on going…for two straight decades. We’ve taken vacations here and there, and had several great adventures, but I’ve never taken anything resembling a sabbatical and certainly never took time between jobs before. I’m really glad I did. It made the world of difference.
