An End of an Era

Today is March 28th 2014. In itself not a special day apart from one little thing. Today marked my last day as a CCIE instructor at IPexpert.

While that’s setting in for some of you and others are yawning, let me say I won’t go into the details about reasons. Some are deeply personal, some are technical, but must importantly I developed the feeling that I’m stagnating professionally, while suffering emotionally. That wasn’t a good combination and it was time for me to move on to something a little bit more challenging…

Starting this next Monday, March 31st I am going to be joining one of Google’s networking teams in Mountain View. I’m fairly certain I won’t be able to talk about my work much (or at all), but I will try to convey as much as I can about the life of a network engineer there. I’m sure it’s going to challenge me mentally and professionally like few things did so far in my career.

Even though this post comes almost two years after the previous one, I’m hoping it won’t be the last. There will be a few coming up now that I feel free to write here again without the pressure to do it elsewhere.

She is happy for me, but busy with our little He to pay much attention to Me.
