A new adventure

Friday, 4 November, was my last day at VMware.

I hope to combine the skills and knowledge I built up from my graduate work and the practical experience of delivering enterprise software at VMware to help Hadapt build a powerful, scalable, data analytics platform and make Hadapt a successful company.

I’m excited to get started and I hope to share here with you some of my experiences as I go.
