Today marks the end of a wonderful 9+ years at Sun for me. I've been a Jiro Consultant, Network Storage Engineer, NetBeans Engineer, NetBeans Evangelist, and a Global Technology Manager. I couldn't have asked for a more rewarding 9 years.
Sun has given the world so much for free (as in beer). I'm happy that I was able to be part of that. Sun has changed the world forever in a positive way. Sun = Open Source. Sun has set the standard for open source software.
I have so many great memories working at Sun and cherish all the great Sunisms and Scottisms:
- The Network IS the computer(for sure!)
- "Kick butt and have fun!"
- Beer bash Fridays
- Sun Tech Days
- SunTEA (made famous by IBIS)
- Sun time (the real time people show up for meetings)
- Work From Home, iWork, Open Work
- "Please remove me from this alias" email storms
- etc., etc.
Thanks for the fabulous journey Sun! I loved every minute.
