One at Sun

Four days ago, I completed a year at Sun Microsystems. Its quite been an eventful year that has witnessed change in the leadership at the top (a new CEO/COO), change in the site leadership where I work, a new manager for our team, a new release of the product I work on and a reduction in work force, among other things. I was told before joining Sun that there'd never be a dull moment here - and indeed its been an insanely "adventurous" year that has taught me (both on the technical and professional front) much more than I learned the year before (which is what keeps you at Sun). A mixed bag of year, and hopefully, the first of many to come.
