Announcing Gabriel Brock

Mon Aug 11, 2014, 2:40 AM
Now announcing the newest little deviant, Gabriel Ezra Brock!

Gabriel was delivered on Saturday, August 9th at 4:45am.
He weighed in at 7lb 12oz and measured 19.5"!

He's got a calm demeanor and great health. Everything we could have hoped for!
The labor was relatively easy and Theresa is recovering well.

Here is big brother Eli getting acquainted:

We are back at home and settling in for the long nights ahead.
He's been very chill so far, though, so we might be lucky and get decent sleep! :happybounce: Huggle!

Nerd by Culpeo-Fox

In late 2011, I was looking for a job and being really picky about it.
  • I wanted to be passionate about the product I was building.
  • I wanted the users of the product to be passionate about it.
  • I wanted my employers to be passionate about the product for reasons other than its ability to generate revenue.
When I saw that deviantART was hiring developers, this is what I felt like:

Surprise by InfernalDalek

deviantART was an amazing product that I could get really passionate about!
It had millions of great users who actively tried to make the site better.

So I submitted my resume..

FEAR by dholl

The hiring process dragged on.. and on.. for 3 months.
Finally, in January 2012, mccann called to offer me the position.
My brain exploded into a bloodbath of rainbows and bunnies:

ZUKO SO HAPPY by spacecoyote

The first few months were challenging.
This job was totally outside my comfort zone and I loved every anxiety-ridden minute of it.

+A Helping Hand+ by moroka323

The product was amazing too: complex, creative, original, beautiful, and strange, all at the same time.

Operation "Clockwork" by Iardacil

It was easy to be passionate about providing a medium to artists from all over the world.
My coworkers were passionate, too.
There was - and still is - a heart-felt investment at deviantART that runs deeper than the paycheck.

I'm not great with traditional art. I love browsing deviantART and seeing the beautiful things you guys create, and maybe someday I'll be able to express myself in lines and ink.
On the other hand, it's not all bad - my creative expression comes in the form of writing code.
Some think that coding is all logic and science... but it's not.

It's an artform, and the beauty is both subjective and open to interpretation.

Happy 14th birthday, deviantART!!
