    In the category of "things that are happening way faster than I was expecting", on the heels of finishing my Ph.D. I'll be heading out to the US next week to interview with a little company we all know and (mostly) love. Big Smile

    Very exciting, somewhat nerve-wracking, and hopefully fun!

    Wish me luck! Smiley

    But if you get a job at this unnamed company it means that you won't post on this certain forum we all know anymore just like Little Guru ended up doing.

    I'll try to stay more active, unlike littleguru and more like blowdart. Smiley

    I've been talking to Charles about getting some Niners together, so we should try and coordinate. But I'd definitely be up for pizza, as I think I've told you before how hard to find and expensive decent pizza is in Japan. Smiley

    I'll arrive on Sunday morning (7am; this is why I don't like eastbound flights Tongue Out ) and be in Seattle until Wednesday.

    good job on your PHD and job search. Seattle is famous for special places. Not that you would be interested, but, Seattle is a very fun place to visit and great people.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    Are you allowed to say specifically which team(s) you're interviewing with? Also, I may have missed it before, but what was your thesis on?

    It's in Search, Azure, and two R&D teams. Beyond that I'm not allowed to say, cause then I'd have to kill you. Wink

    My thesis was on large scale distributed data processing.

    Good luck, Sven!  Probably best not to mention Blowdart in the interview though, it might put them off. Tongue Out
