Last Day

11 PM December 21, 2006

Well, after four and a half years, I’m leaving this job. It’s been a blast. For such a little company, it’s amazingly stuffed with talented, interesting people. Amongst my colleagues are Keith, David, and Neville. Other alumni include Charles Miller (who taught me what a ‘blog’ is) Daniel Bradby and the now famous Gavin King. (Speaking of Gavin King, there are several people here who claim they were in the room during a particular meeting when Hibernate was born. They should blog about that meeting.)

As you might imagine, I have mixed feelings about leaving. I’ve learnt a lot while I’ve been here – about Java, about programming as a craft, and about working with people. I’ll miss the staff and management, and I’ll miss working with the fire brigade. However, it’s time to take on new challenges, so off I go.

The shiny new job starts on January 15, meaning three weeks of relaxing unemployment between now and then.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Happy Christmas to you and yours. Make sure you have a nice rest over the 'sunny' part of the year.
