A decade. Wow. How did that happen?
It’s been an interesting ride. I have survived through 4 personnel reductions during the 10 years so I must provide some value to the Company :-)
I have learned a lot, and I mean a lot. The problem domain has been very challenging with very demanding customers (well, is there any other kind?) in a very demanding environment. Building real time operations support systems for large telco’s is not the easiest thing to do. One could choose easier tasks but then again, one would not learn so much.
Well, recently I have come to the conclusion that my journey towards software craftsmanship has just started. There’s a long way to go and I doubt that I’ll ever finish it. But it is a goal worth of pursuing!
