Month: September 2010

I’ve been at Joyent for a week now and its been pretty overwhelming.  There are so many new things to learn.  I know thats normal when you start at a new job, but I had been at Sun for so long, and learned all of the ins and outs, that I had kind of forgotten how much there is to learn when you start a new job.  One of the things I’m so happy about is the excitement here at Joyent.  Its a real startup atmosphere with tons of work to do, talented engineers who are busy on a ten different projects at once, and a real feeling that we’re out to make a difference.  I’m sure I’ll have more to post once I get unburied, but for now, all I can say is that its great to be here!

I have worked at Sun, and now Oracle, for longer than I really want to admit,
but I have reached
a point in my career where I feel that I need to try something new.
Today, September 13th, 2010, is my last day at Oracle. For the past 5 years
I’ve worked on zones. The zones team is such an outstanding group of engineers
and I’m going to miss working with them. I’ve learned a lot from them, as well
as all of the other engineers at Sun that I have been privileged to work with over
the years.

Now, I’m moving on to something new. Tomorrow I start work at
Joyent. Hopefully I’ll have a chance to
blog more than I’ve done recently. My blog is moving to I’ll continue to work
on zones, and Solaris in general, at Joyent, and I’m excited about the new
new challenges ahead. There are obviously a lot of changes going on with
Solaris right now, so its going to interesting. And fun!
