We recently opened a Seattle office as a move to consolidate Joyent’s distributed development efforts with something concentrated in a specific place. You can read more about it here. Ben Black, recently of Microsoft, joins Joyent as VP, Research to help lead the efforts. Jason is moving up to Seattle as well.
Much more could be said about our decision to consolidate development in a single place. The tax imposed by a distributed team is heavy. We aren’t moving all our developers to Seattle, but we are committing to establishing a core.
