Today was my first day as a software engineer at Apple in Cupertino. It means that in all likelihood I will only post stuff about my cat on this blog from now on, and that it feels a bit like I am 5 and this is Christmas Day. Last year has been a heck of a ride: I graduated, got married, moved to the US, started a postdoc in Dawn Song’s group, became a father, worked on a few papers with amazing people, interviewed with Google Zurich and finally accepted Apple’s offer. As usual, there is a quote by Douglas Adams that describes this phenomenon inconspicuously well:
Life… is like a grapefruit. It’s orange and squishy, and has a few pips in it, and some folks have half a one for breakfast.

WoW that was a hell of a year… Congratulations on your newborn that’s really great!
A lot of congratulations also for landing a job at apple that’s pretty impressive to see, especially after interviewing also with google Zurich.
I can’t say I’m surprised though, knowing what you did from highschool to now you really deserve it.
Erf, felicitations pour tout ça!
Bonne route chez la pomme…
Yeah billy boy !! Et félicitations (avec plein de retard) :D
“The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong, it usually turns out to be impossible to get at and repair.”
Congratz ! Heureux de voir que tu as trouvé une si bonne place !
Au passage, merci encore pour m’avoir donné goût à la recherche !
Bjr Daniel, pourquoi ne suis-je absolument pas étonnée que tu travailles dans la programmation informatique ! Félicitations en tout cas. Je suis tjrs en contact avec Séverine et Magalie mais perdu tout contact avec Gaëlle et Nicolas. Bonne continuation !
