Moving on from Microsoft
Not too long ago, I handed in my notice to Microsoft, terminating my employment mid-June 2012. I suspect this is slowly leaking out on the Twitter and Facebook these hours – as is tradition in the connected world.
During the graduation ceremony at my university it was said that: “Life is a series of temporary relationships” (though hopefully not with your wife). Throughout my career I have taken this fact of life to heart. And I can, without fear of the future, try out new challenges.
After June 2012, I am going to take it a bit slow, and do some consulting. I will then consider which adventure I want to go on from here. Because I believe you have to live out your dreams of adventure while you are still young, and I have a fair bit of fuel left in the tank before “peak oil”.
I part with Microsoft as a friend and will be working on creating a smooth transition over the next month. My work with SQL Server will continue, just outside the campus in Redmond. After June, I will be available for some teaching and short consulting gigs to share my knowledge. Terms and conditions will apply and follow here.
In the meantime, I have made my CV available: About Me.
