Today's my last day as an employee of Google. I've been on leave since December, so it's not really a big change this day. But now the decision's made. It feels a bit strange leaving such a great and productive company. But I'm ready to do something new with a smaller group of people. No idea what that would be yet. I'm also working towards living in France for a few months this fall.
So goodbye, Google, and thank you for a fun and interesting job. While I worked for you I built two APIs for your customers: search and AdWords. I did a bunch of Java webapp work, object-relational mappings and servlet infrastucture and the like. I particularly enjoyed being able to meddle and consult on various products as they were being born. Thanks!
