This is not the standard post that comes with a problem, some motivation, an objective, and a proposed solution. This post is just an update and an opportunity for me to share some great news.
Next week I will be joining the ZFS team of Delphix in their San Francisco office. Systems programming/engineering has always been the most enjoyable area of computers for me and I believe that this is what I want to do. Having said that, I believe there is not better place for me to do this than Delphix. In a way, I feel like a reached a personal Ithaca.
There are no words to express how excited I am for this opportunity. I look forward to learn from and work with Matthew Ahrens, George Wilson, Dan Kimmel, and other heroes of the ZFS fame that work at Delphix. I look forward to the challenges ahead. I look forward to examine some ugly core dumps :-)
