It's done. We did something that we weren't sure had much merit, how much work it was really going to be, nor did we think we originally were going to do more than 3 episodes.
Jamie and I took on these nine episodes and had a lot of fun doing it. Sure there were many nights staying up till 2-3 AM to shoot interviews, marathon video editing sessions, and countless challenges along the way, but it was something that two people in the Sitecore community were able to put together and move forward.
This was very garage punk band stuff for me. The sessions were pretty raw from a humor standpoint. Most material cut from the final versions of their episodes will never see the light of day. The guests were amazing. For many guests it felt like we knew then from childhood making the process so much more enriching than I could have ever imagined.
But like everything in life, you can only ride the wave for as long as it lasts, and we felt like this wave crested and came to shore. It is time for both of us to determine what is next for Sitecore! Experienced. We know this much, it won't be a podcast.
We wanted to go on to other projects and endeavors within and outside of the Sitecore community.
Jamie and myself had developed this friendship from merely working together within the same team. We took that friendship and this collaboration to allow others to share what they do in the Sitecore community, while we selfishly got to hang out, tell bad jokes, catch up on family news, and have some fun and laughs along the way.
While we will still be doing some things together in the future (and we really don't know what that will be yet) I would like to encourage the community, which we think is one of the better software development communities out there, to continue to extend, share, and find ways to share by working together.
The benefits of doing so have now been repeated a few times in the community since our episode #1 alone.
So thank you for all your support and your viewership.
You can find me soon on the next wave! I don't sit still for very long.
