9 years ago…

August 2002 I’ve started  my first “real” programming job, I was an intern at Intel working side by side with intelligent and talented engineers on a performance monitoring tool for Linux. A lot has happened since, I switched a few jobs, sometimes I worked for big enterprise and sometime for a small startup until I ended up on my current position in a company that is neither (or both).

I wrote software that did video processing, ecommerce and helped people write better unit tests (I hope) mostly (but not only) in C++ and .NET languages where I felt most comfortable.

 

In the last nine years I learnt quite a lot in the since I wrote my first void main – on my first job I leant how to write code, on my second job I learnt how to write code fast but only on my previous job did I learn how to write code well…

In every job and every project I had a the good fortune to find guru that could teach me something and with each lesson I improved not only professionally but also as an individual.

All in all it’s been fun ride, it’s not over – I’m just stopped for a minuet too look back and take a breath.

I can’t wait to see what would happen in the next nine years.

One thought on “9 years ago…”

  1. Some of people said -” Never look back”. It not existing anymore. I say, this sentence (“Never look back”) is only half true. It is very important to look back sometimes in order to see where we came from and where we going. To learn from our lessons and from lessons of others. I hope you future 9 years will be more interesting and diverse 🙂 Good luck!
