Release Therapy

I've been a professional software developer for over a decade, all told: 2006 to present, plus an earlier stint in 2000 and 2001. I've written a ton of software and released or contributed to the release of numerous components, web apps, services, mobile apps (most of them internal Enterprise Deployments) and consultingware.

After my last disastrous run at a consulting shop, I decided that I wanted to only work for companies that built their own products and services which they offered to consumers, even if they offered ancillary services to other companies. A few months ago I joined Major League Baseball's Advanced Media division, and started working on MLB.TV for OS X.

Today we are proud to announce the 1.0 Beta release. Personally, proud is an understatement. The product is not perfect—there are various bugs—but I am absolutely delighted to have built as good of a consumer-oriented native desktop application as we have here. I'm eager for all the feedback, bug reports, and the planned enhancements as we look forward to OS X 10.10 Yosemite.

Working at MLBAM has been a blast, and even as I continue to incubate my independent ambitions on the side, I know that I am getting essential "reps" on building and delivering customer-oriented products.

Download, and enjoy! 😄
