Last week marked the second anniversary of my most-recent paycheck, and next week marks the 76th anniversary of my birth.
So I think I'm retired (unless I get a good job offer).
My career in commercial software began on December 13, 1976, and (apparently) ended on January 27, 2017. Half of that was in Eastern New England, and half in Houston, comprising gigs in:
- DEC (Digital Equipment Corporation)
- DEC (again)
- Di-Tech (not the loan people)
- Alliant Computer Systems
- Sun Microsystems
- Visual Numerics
- Shell Oil
Three gigs as a documentor, five developing applications, and the rest in test automation.
I've been blessed, truly.
So to all y'all still in the industry: Carry the torch, move it forward, hold it high.
