on Leaving CADE

Today is, as has been previously mentioned, my last day on the enormous CADE project. What comes next, I do not know. God knows.

Yesterday I had encouraging and interesting conversations with a few associates: among other things, they encouraged me to consider transitioning from computer programmer to systems architect. Another conversation turned to the possibilities of pursuing education and certification, perhaps toward becoming a DBA.

My resumé is online here. Within the computer field I perceive my interests growing in the direction of working on IBM's software products. I think I would like to say "I helped make DB2 index faster" or "I helped make our C++ compiler compile faster." On the other hand, God may be leading me toward more customer-facing projects (I doubt that the IBM products are in desperate need of another architect) or perhaps away from computers altogether.
