This week, I’m starting a new job (more about that later, I’m sure), and I’m ending my relationship with IBM. I enjoyed quite a few things about working on Server-Side Swift, but IBM is a really big company, and I tend not to enjoy the internals of big companies.
From what I’ve seen, the bigger the company, the more disconnected I feel from what’s going on. After a couple of reorganizations at IBM, I felt I’d completely lost the thread of how the goals of the company were connected to my contributions.
It’s time for me to get back to working on a project that’s aligned with the goals of the company I’m working with. I’m really looking forward to that.
