Laurent Bugnion (GalaSoft) Diary of a Code Trotter

This year has been a pretty amazing year. A few weeks ago, I was writing about my first year at IdentityMine. A little more than one year ago I was closing the Siemens book (after around 13 years of working into Building Automation, but always from a software engineer perspective) and started the IdentityMine chapter of my life :). As I mention in the post in question, this first year was a very interesting and also challenging year. Interesting because I got to work with some of the best creative people and developers in the world. It’s always such a pleasure when I introduce myself to someone by saying I work at IdentityMine and to see a look of recognition on their face. This firm rocks, and I love being part of it. Challenging, because being the only European employee can be tough at times, even though the team has been amazing in making me a part of the family. To mitigate the distance, technical mediums like Twitter and Facebook, MSN and an IP phone have been super helpful. Of course nothing replaces the face-to-face contact, and my regular trips to Seattle (which will continue in 2010, I will be in Seattle again in February) make wonders to reconnect and continue the relationship. Surprisingly actually, the distance has not been as tough as I thought it might be. Of course it might not be OK for everyone to work this way, but it has been OK for me.
