Last Day at OpenAir (a NetSuite Company)

Today is my last day working for OpenAir (a NetSuite company), tomorrow I'm onto other things (more on that later).

It's been an incredible 4+ years working at OpenAir (which was acquired by NetSuite in 2008).

I have loved working on the product; designing features, collaborating with product folks and other engineers, and coding/testing features and fixes. I have also loved working on production issues; building out the infrastructure, helping scale the application, pushing out releases early on Saturday mornings, refining the release process, being the MySQL go-to guy, and even some physical work carrying of servers between cages.

More than all of the techy stuff, I've loved working with good folks. As a remote employee on a virtual engineering team there was definitely less regular face-to-face interaction than I'd had in previous jobs, yet there was still a great team feeling and spirit of collaboration. And I can't say enough good about the many folks throughout the rest of the company that I got to work with over the years. Perhaps I'll cross paths with some of these folks in the future, but for now it's farewell and best wishes.
