So long Oracle ...


... and thanks for all the fish!

This Friday (October 18, 2013) is my last day at Oracle.

After
  • Publishing almost 1400 blog entries with 5500+ comments on them
  • Working in the Java EE team since inception
  • Visiting 35+ countries and several cities around the world
  • Speaking at all major Java conferences and lots of Java User Groups
  • 15-year alumni of JavaOne as staff
  • Meeting and working with best of the best in the Java community
  • Most importantly having lots of fun

Its time for me to move on!

No new blog entries will be posted on this blog.

The comments on this blog are disabled as I'll not be able to respond to them. Feel free to leave comments on the new blog and I'd love to follow up with you there.

Thank you very much for all the support that has been shown on this blog.

I'd like to conclude with a Hindi song that I've been humming for the past few days now ...

Abhi alvida mat kaho doston ...
Na jaane kahan phir mulaqaat ho ...
Kyonki ...
Beete huye lamhon ki kasak saath to hogi ...
Khawabon mein hi ho chahe mulaqaat to hogi ...

For my non-Hindi readers, here is my paraphrased meaning ...

Don't say goodbye yet my friends ...
We'll likely meet somewhere else ...
Because ...
We'll always have the memories of the wonderful time spent together ...
May be in dreams but we will meet again ...

With that, over and out, and see you at blog.arungupta.me!

Purani Jeans Aur Guitar

The title of this post is in Hindi meaning "Old Jeans and Guitar". If you understand Hindi and done your college from India, then you'd love this song from Ali Haider. I used to love this song and Google, once again, found it for me.

The complete lyrics of the songs are:


Song lyrics | Ali Haider - Purani Jeans lyrics

Enjoy!
