All about dryflies
Location: United States
BS in 1980s - on my 4th employer. 15 years experience as software engineer, Started as embedded systems Engineer. had opportunity to work at HP. Got hit in the first wave of HP layoffs. Went to work for a semiconductor inspection machine vendor developing a really cool automated visual inspection tool. Whole division got wiped out by the extended downturn after 9/11. Took an IT job to stay in the community. This has been an enjoyable and comparitively low stress job compared to being a SW engineer. Took me about 6 months to come up to speed by mining the TR site and others whenever I had a problem.
