Working for Sun, Oh, the places I have been
There was fun to be done,
There was Java versus .Net to be won.
There was butt to kick!
There was .com and startups making $$ really quick
I joined the high fliers
who soared to high heights and saw some great sights
How much can you win?
We were the best of the best, on top of all the rest.
then Bang-ups and Hang-ups did happen
How much can you lose?
We got all hung up in a prickle-ly perch.
and then all of a sudden we were left in a Lurch.
The EU took us
toward a most useless place.
The Waiting Place
for people just waiting.
waiting around for a Yes or No
Simple it's not, I'm afraid you will find,
for a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind.
I made MY decision,
I decided not to stay
and I found another job
so, I will be on my way!
And the Tech Days gang will fly on.
But I'm not crying because it's over. I'm smiling because it happened.
Places I have been with Sun (some more than once):
Amsterdam, London, Paris, Nice, Antwerp, Frankfurt, Berlin, Cologne, Athens, Budapest, Dublin, Warsaw, Madrid, Barcelona, Istanbul, Israel, Johannesburg, Sydney, Beijing, Shanghai, St.Petersburg, Hyderabad, Tokyo, Manila, Singapore, Taipei, Mexico city, Sao Paulo, Brasilia, Austin, San Francisco, New York, DC, Atlanta, Miami, Orlando, Manchester, Boston, Philadelphia, Raleigh, Charlotte, Memphis, Dallas, Seattle and probably some I forgot.
It's been really great working for Sun on and off for 8 yrs.
In my new job I will be working for http://availity.com/ Availity connects health care professionals with a smarter, online approach to electronic claims and other daily health plan transactions.
