I joined Sun over ten years back almost right out of
school. I started out working on Solaris Security where
one of my first projects was to help integrate SSH into
Solaris 9. Over the years I moved around a bunch and
worked on a myraid of technologies from Solaris Volume
Manager, NFS and Install.
During these years I've had the pleasure of working
with some of the finest engineers in the industry and
made a lot of friends here (some of whom are more like
family at this point). Thank you guys for making this
such a fun place to work!
Besides the people, I have had a chance to experience and
work on truly one of the best Operating Systems on the
planet. Even though the rigor imposed by Solaris Engineering
on developers seemed daunting and frustrating at times,
looking back -- it is one of the primary reasons why the
OS is so rock solid. I am forever grateful for having
gotten a chance to work on Solaris.
Now the time has come for me to venture into something new --
outside Oracle. While I'm excited about the opportunity that
beckons me, it is tough for me to leave behind colleagues with
whom I truly loved working with.
This is my last blog entry here. In the future, you can
find my blog at http://alokaggarwal.wordpress.com/. My new
email will be aggarwaa at cs dot pdx dot edu. I'm on Linkedin
and Facebook as well should you wish to connect that way.
