Working in the United States
I am sure everyone has read about the “you cannot possibly pronounce or spell” volcano in Iceland throwing up in the air and screwing up the entire flight system of this planet. While most people were reading about it from the comfort of their home I was doing the same while waiting in airports with a 5 year old tagged along. Anyways, 48 hours and a switch in the direction of flights got me to some countries I didn’t really plan to visit and over the Pacific to land in Seattle.
Going forward I will be working out of the Microsoft Redmond offices, doing pretty much the same stuff I was doing before (working on the .NET Compact Framework runtime).
Right now I am settling down with my family and my daughter is excited to see snow for the first time (she got lucky as there was a small snowfall on Saturday in Snoqualmie pass). The changes we need to adjust to is humongous, we left Hyderabad when it was 43° Celsius and now it’s 6° Celsius in Redmond. Oh sorry I should’ve said it was 110°F and now it’s 43°F in Redmond.
Wish me luck and hopefully finally I will be able to attend some nerddinners.
