Today is my last day at my current employer. It has been an incredible learning experience, and I'll be forever grateful to the man who gave me the opportunity almost 7 years ago having zero knowledge of either Oracle or database administration.
I have accepted an offer from noted consulting firm The Pythian Group to join their staff of DBAs doing remote administration. This new position should give me exposure to a diverse set of client environments and configurations and a chance to grow in this career path and learn from some of the best in the business. I will be flying out on Sunday for a 3-week stint at the worldwide headquarters in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada to immerse myself in the Pythian way. If I have free time with my nights I hope to finish porting LeagueSite to drupal.
