Level Up!

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.

  1. 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.

  2. Yeah billy boy !! Et félicitations (avec plein de retard) :D

    Sacré Douglas…

    Au passage, merci encore pour m’avoir donné goût à la recherche !
