I’ve been at Adobe for over 5 years now, and for the most part, I’ve worked on established products (ColdFusion & Flex). I joined ColdFusion at version 8 and Flash Builder at version 4. So needless to say, I had to work within the confines of historical decisions. Which has been an incredible learning experience, but I’ve never been able to say “I own this, this is my vision”.
Fast forward to today. I’m hard at work on my passion project with what can only be described as a “dream team”. We’ve been given complete control over not just “what to build”, but also “how to build it” and “how to bring it to market”. It’s the latter two parts that has me the most excited.
