Farewell Sun and Oracle

Today is my last day at Sun and Oracle. 13 years 5 months at Sun and 8 months at Oracle or a ratio of ~20:1.

Like Tor i looked at my badge I am gonna turn in today:
The picture was taken when I first joined Sun in 1997. It's been in my back pocket for ages, it's almost like loosing a limb!

To my work friends and colleagues I wish you luck. "Fair Winds and Following Seas" to Java SE 7, Java EE 7 and GlassFish 7 (i made that last version up :-) , but a 777 release is rather appealing numerologically speaking).

I've "had a blast", "kicked butt", and "had fun", it's onwards to new adventures... (more on that later today). 

Many thanks to all those sending public and private communications of support. 

Signing off with my favorite Scott McNealy quote:
The only value you can add to a banana is a bruise

  1. Paul,

    I'm sad to see you leave. But, I only wish you continued success in your new journey. I hope you continue to participate in JavaOne as a speaker! :)
