15 Years at Sun
By pkasper on Apr 17, 2008
Well, this Monday, April 14, 2008, was my 15th year anniversary at Sun. For starters, I can't believe I've been working that long. And, I can't believe I've been fortunate enough to work for a technology company for that long...especially a great company like Sun.
Throughout my 15 years, I've seen a lot of changes happen at Sun. I've been at Sun during the good times and the not so good times. I started my career working on the Solaris 2.4 installation documentation, I was fortunate enough to write a retail book for Sun, I was one of the initial architects of the Sun System Handbook (which is still my proudest accomplishment at Sun), and now I am helping to drive the OpenSolaris storage community.
I started working for Sun in Colorado Springs, moved to Broomfield, CO when Sun built a new campus in 1997, and now I currently work from Woodbury, Minnesota, due to Sun's flexible work-from-home program. The ability to work from home in Minnesota gives me the opportunity to be closer to my extended family and to spend more time with my two little girls.
While at Sun, I've worked with a lot of great people and have forged life-long friendships. Sun has been a big part of my life and I hope I can continue to make Sun a success for many more years.
Here are a few pictures of the Sun campus ground-breaking ceremony in Broomfield, Colorado, in 1997. I couldn't find a current picture of the campus...if someone has one, please leave a comment.
Many of these people are still at Sun today!
Here I am more than 10 years ago...I haven't aged a bit! ;)
Not a bad view!
