Extended responsibilities

When I started working at Blue Meteorite last summer, I foresaw myself as building the background architecture for web sites. It didn't go exactly that way. But, after several diversions and detours (great ones, though!) I'm slowly back in the web business, having spent the first six or so months with requirements analysis and Windows Forms apps.
To cut a long story short, I have been appointed Development Manager in charge of our publishing framework (or content management system, if you will), Meteor. My main task is to work with the product's chief architect to set the future direction for the system, both from a conceptual and a technology perspective. Of course, it's a both a time consumer and an enermous source of challenge and inspiration.
The near future should certainly be a time of learning for me. Although I've been working with the web and communication both in the publishing business and the public sector, the perspective of a software vendor is rather new. Particularly, trying to find the balance between product development and customized service provision is a worthy challenge. I expect to know much more in a few months… and really look forward to it.
