Welcoming Russell Centanni

After publishing job postings a few weeks ago, I'm very glad to welcome Russell Centanni to the User Experience team here at Highwinds. Russ brings a ton of Flex, Java, and web development experience to the table and we're thrilled to have him aboard.

Besides filling out HR paperwork, getting his logins configured, arranging his desk, and starting to set up his new Mac, he managed to contribute to a lengthy brainstorming session for the StrikeTracker roadmap and get Maven automation ready for our Flex builds using m2Eclipse and the flex-mojos plugin for Maven. Not bad for the first day on the job.

We'll be publishing the instructions for Flex/Maven configuration on my blog shortly, since so many people seem to think Maven is cumbersome; it's actually pretty darn straightforward.
