I recently joined Red Hat on May 16th and spent a few days in Raleigh at orientation. I can’t think of a time before that I felt as good a fit as at Red Hat. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a job to sit on your ass, however, if you work hard, you are rewarded. The company culture seeps out of people and as best I can describe it, it is basically one of common sense. Nothing overly crazy, but a lot of thought put into decisions, then once made, they are implemented quickly.
For any of you wondering why I made this move, I had spent the last year at Ericsson working on a very large OpenStack rollout with AT&T. What we did was great but, my heart lies with presales and I couldn’t pass this opportunity up. I’ve always tinkered and been a hobbyist with Linux and love the thought of having a career with it.
I have no idea how much I can weld my past technologies with what I am doing today but time will tell and you have to make changes in life. Nevertheless, I am at Citrix Synergy next week in Vegas, so if you’re out there let me know and we can meet.
