Today was my last day at Yahoo and for the first time in my decade long career I am “officially unemployed” 😉
When you work at a place for more than half a decade then lot of things in your life start to revolve around it. The countless amount of Yahoo swags at my home is a testimonial to it. I just did a look around and found the following Yahoo branded items around me.
- Yahoo T-shirts (which I have enough for this lifetime 😉 )
- Couple of power banks
- Couple of pen drives
- Couple of bean bags
- All kind of bags starting from backpacks to laptop bags, travel bags, carry bags etc
- Couple of toys for my son
- Pens and lot of other small things
I came out of the office today with lot of good memories (that I can cherish for my entire life) and I am pretty sure Yahoo would continue to be part of my life even though I don’t work there any more.
I have not made up mind yet and at this point I am planning to take up a break for a couple of weeks so that I can reboot myself before deciding anything. Meanwhile I might concentrate more on my pet projects and might spend a little extra time with Bulk WP.
Anyways I will keep you guys updated of what I am up to and meanwhile I am going to enjoy my little break 😉
Best of Luck Sudar, Hope you remember me. I am Lentin Joseph, was speaker at PyCon2013.
Thanks for the wishes Lentin. I remember you very well, you gave talk about robotics and it was just after my talk.
So what are you up to these days?
Hi Sudar. After pycon 2013, i was trying to build a startup. Started company before 8 month before. Now doing some works and some product research ..
Cool. All the best for your startup.
Good Luck ! ! !
Good luck Sudar.
Thanks Rasukutty. Long time.. So what are you up to these days?
Good luck Sudar!
I listened to you on my first day in Yahoo! During induction. Couple of things that you have written about have changed lot of things I have done at work. Your post on python pig udfs made me try it out and I have probably never written a java udf after that!! And recently I tried out dplyr and yes, its awesome. I hope to try pandas sometime. Thanks!
ps: my last day will be middle of next month.
Thanks for your wishes and I am really glad that my blog posts helped you at work. Enjoy your last month at Yahoo 🙂
