My last post on this blog was an announcement that I had started a new job as the Software Engineering Manager for FillZ.com, a subsidiary of AbeBooks.com (itself a subsidiary of Amazon.com). The last seven months has been a terrific whirlwind of activity, learning, and adjustment to the new role, and I’m happy to report that I’m loving it.
One of the most interesting activities over the past few months has been the evaluation of a new tool set (languages, frameworks, deployment tools, etc) for our upcoming projects. I’ve decided to write a series of posts about the evaluation, our decision, and how that choice is working out for us.
First up: the evaluation process.
