Hello world

Hello world... this is my first ever blog. So, who am I?

I came to Sun through the acquisition of SeeBeyond. There are quite a lot of differences between SeeBeyond and Sun. SeeBeyond was a bit of a secretive company. Contact with the "outside world" was not exactly stimulated, rather frowned upon. Sun on the other hand is all for openness and communication with the world outside of Sun. Hence this blog.

What can I tell about my time before Sun and SeeBeyond? Well, to begin at the beginning: a defining moment in my life was when I took a programming class in high school. As soon as I could, I bought a Commodore 64 on which I toiled countless hours away coding tools in the immensely primitive BASIC of that machine. Ever since, my one great interest has been developing software.

For the past ten-or-so years, I have been involved in development of commercial software products. Early on in my career I was in software for the chemical process industry (my background is really chemical engineering); soon I discovered that I should not limit myself to chemical engineering and I moved into enterprise software. First into B2B software, then into integration software.

In a previous life I spent five years working at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the department of Chemical Engineering. Much of it was in compuational modelling and laboratory automation; I had a tiny softare company on the side for the evening hours. After I earned my PhD I left for the USA.

What will I do with this blog? No personal musings... but I hope to write plenty of technical ones.

Dear Frank,

My name is Kalene Barry. I am a recruiter for Logos Bible Software, a growing company located in beautiful Bellingham, Washington. Logos Bible Software is a developer-founded company that's leading the way in digital publishing. While we build tools for a specific market -- Bible students and churches -- our technology is world-class. We've been acknowledged as a leader in e-books at O'Reilly's TOC, Digital Book World, and as a finalist for WTIA's Consumer Product of the Year this year.
We offer competitive compensation and a comprehensive benefits package including healthcare, dental care, and 401(k). We also offer free soda pop, a bike shop, reduced cost gym memberships, and continuous learning programs.
And we run a developer paradise: the latest technologies and platforms (C#, WPF, Mono, Cocoa, iOS, Android, etc.), awesome facilities in downtown Bellingham, an outdoor center, and an elite team of great developers.

We are currently looking for talented software engineers and developers to work on our upcoming projects. I am very impressed with your knowledge of the field, and was wondering if you would consider sending your resume my way. My contact information is below. Feel free to write with further questions.

Want to play an important role on an awesome team at a 200+ person software company that's been named a Washington Best Workplace? We're big enough to offer the stability and resources you want, but small enough that you get a big piece of cool projects and get to work with a team of peers.

Check out our code blog at http://code.logos.com and send me a resume!

Thank you,

Kalene E. Barry
