I Am Now A Part Of Plumbr

Good News, Everyone!

I am currently en route to Tartu, Estonia. This is where I will live and work for some time to come, in all likelihood at least a year, and probably longer. This is a radical change, but I have a smile on my face, because this is definitely a step in the right direction.

Monday is my first work day at Plumbr, an Estonian startup that pinpoints performance issues in your java applications before they have a chance to give you a world of trouble. I first heard of it from one of its founders, Nikita, over a year ago. I instantly liked the idea, and it has developed a lot since then.

I am really excited to get started, as I really believe that I can help make the product, and with it, the lives of engineers, a lot better. Also expect that there will be more tech blog entries from me soon, although conference appearances might become a bit scarcer.

337 @ Yandex: c-c-c-combo breaker!

Huh? 337? Combo breaker?

The title might be a little confusing, so here's the explanation from the Captain. The 337 days are there since I really don't see how that number is any worse that a year. Or 336 days. Or whatever other time interval. I don't acknowledge any and all celebrations that go like "X time units since moment Y", so you can just take that as my little personal rebellion. Oh, also that's 1000 days to go till 1337.

According to historical records, I haven't worked at a single place for more that something like 10 or 11 months, always leaving for greener pastures after about that long. A combo of sorts. And seeing as I have no desire to leave Yandex anytime soon, the combo is broken.

Okay, but why? See below.
