My start date at Joyent was Monday, August 19, 2013. At the end of this week, I’ll have been at Joyent for nine months.
Writing this post after nine months is a coincidence. The impedance for this post is actually my colleague Deirdré Straughan’s Joyent Retrospective.
The video is a “retrospective of the videos [Deirdré has] done in the last few years”. The video is wonderfully playful. Joyent CTO Bryan Cantrill appears to fidget along to the music.
The experiences highlighted in the video are the real gift. Deirdré links to all the the videos (with the exception of the internal meet-and-greet ones). Deirdré has done an incredible job leading Joyent sharing so much of its technical expertise.
Watching Joyent Retrospective brings to mind the journey I’ve been part of here. I thought I knew what I was getting myself into, but I really had no appreciation of the depth and pragmatic uniqueness of this team and technology. No company compares to Joyent in density of expertise in Infrastructure as a Service and as a product. This team has deep, deep, strong roots and continues to execute on its vision.
