I haven’t written on my blog at all in 2020 yet and I have never gone a whole year without blogging so I thought I would share my move out of Oracle that has been my home for 22 years, 7 months and 23 days.
Too many great memories to list, but I took this photo from my office window when I went to clear it out. I am immensely proud of the 8 patents that I was granted (still have a handful pending, it takes several years for them to be granted) not because it is recognition of doing new and groundbreaking things, but because every one of them has multiple names on them. The creative and collaborative work with amazingly bright people are the memories I will hold most dear. I was lucky to work with so many amazing people at Oracle and as we come to the end of 2020 I am a little sad I did not get to say goodbye properly, but I am hoping for a get together with everyone some time next year, maybe to mark one year after leaving!
