This happened yesterday. And immediately after “this” I’ve realized I am so tired – I could not post even a paragraph.
For the past several months the only thing people have heard from me was – “I am busy”. And I was. And yesterday our new product has been launched. Our new website went live, and a first couple of loans got through, and the first loan was funded.
For a couple of our team members that was the first real product launch in their lives. Not for me, but it’s definitely the first time in my life when not only all database design and database code is written by me (or drafted by me), but also everything is based on the new technologies, which were developed with my participation
the other day one person who’ve known me fora while asked me, whether I’ve accomplished everything in my life.
It sure feels pretty close to that :). That “I have nothing left o wish for” – all my wishes have become true. But now comes the next phase – life have to prove, that all the things I believe are scalable, durable, flexible, efficient – indeed are.
I am always saying: a database is a service. Nobody from the “outer world” can see all these cool things. The only thing people will see will be (hopefully!) fast response.
But you know, what’s even more important than “all wishes coming true”? That’s our team, In my 34 years in industry I am positive that’s the best team I ever worked with, with each and single person being cooperative, flexible, opened to trying new things, diligent, attentive to details… and the list goes on… I’d just summarize it – each and single person in the team understands what the word team means:).
