just put in my resignation— Sathya | firstname.lastname@example.org (@SathyaBhat) January 31, 2011
... and there goes the goodbye mail.— Sathya | email@example.com (@SathyaBhat) April 21, 2011
I had tweeted these 2 simple sentences, the former about 3 months ago, the latter yesterday. Yep, after nearly 4 years, I’m moving away from 3i. It’s been an interesting experience - I’ve ranted and raved about my journeys on twitter, and often blogged about my experiences and misadventures in 3i ( if you have same free time, go read through the archives - good stories there). In these past (almost-)4 years, I started out as a trainee, creating patches & shipments, moved onto to GUI development using Oracle forms, switched over to backend stored procedures development using PL/SQL. Then came the big challenges - client interaction & data migration. Moving data from a 30-year old legacy system is no easy task, and with the constraints & adherence to business logic to be followed - was no doubt, the most challenging task that I had undertaken. Big props to all my colleagues, team mates, peers who helped me along and encouraged and motivated me. Also, a special Thank You to the Ruby gang.
So what’s next? I will be moving over to Logica, starting Monday. I’ll still be in Chennai, though. Here’s for the new challenge ahead.
