Heading to O'Reilly

OreillyI'm not the type of person who changes jobs very often.  In fact, I've only switched three times in a 25-year career and every time I've wound up staying longer at the next job than I did at the previous one.

So after almost 10 years at Wiley (including 3 with IDG/Hungry Minds) I recently made the decision to join O'Reilly (here's the press release).  I can't say enough good things about the wonderful folks at Wiley; it's an outstanding organization loaded with passionate, talented professionals.  I've often heard people use the same words to describe the O'Reilly organization, btw.

Although it was tough leaving all my Wiley colleagues last Friday I can't tell you how excited I am to join the O'Reilly team.  I'm sure I'll be drinking from the fire hose at first, so wish me luck as I embark on this new journey.

P.S. -- Publishing 2020 and Kindleville will both live on as I plan to continue blogging.  Stay tuned for future posts related to my new role at O'Reilly...

Congratulations on your new job!
I enjoy your blogs and look forward to reading about your O'Reilly years, as they happen.
"Wiley to O'Reilly" is a bit of a tongue-twister, isn't it? (Come on, say it fast, three times!)
All the best,
Eve Paludan
