As some of my readers may already know, my (previous) employer Safewhere went out of business in August, so I started looking for something new to do. I believe that I have now found it.

October 1st I'll start in my new role as Technical Lead at Commentor, where it will be my responsibility to establish us as the leading Windows Azure center of expertise in Denmark (and beyond?). That's quite a big mouthful for me, but also something that I'm very excited about.

This means that besides working on real Windows Azure projects with Danish customers, I also anticipate doing a lot of blogging, speaking and writing about Azure in the future.

What does this mean for my many other endeavors, like my book, AutoFixture or just blogging and speaking about TDD and DI in general? These things are something that I've always been doing mainly in my spare time, and I intend to keep doing that. Perhaps there are even better opportunities for synergy in my new line of work, but only time will tell.

I'm really thrilled to be given the opportunity to expand in a slightly different direction. It'll be hard, but I'm sure it's also going to be a blast!


good for Azure! :)

Hi Mark,

Congrats - great news for both Commmentor, Azure and you.
I hope to do a ton of shared Azure projects with you in the near future.

From what I know of you from your blog and your excellent book, Commentor is lucky to have you. I am almost finished with your book Dependency Injection, and I am VERY impressed with it. I have put much of the knowledge to use on my current projects, which have made them much more testable.

Good luck with that Mark, I'm sure you need it with Azure :)

Regards from a true believer in "What can Azure do for you"

Congrats on a new job. I will be interesting to read about Azure. Glad to see that you won't get rid of TDD and DI ;)
