Goodbye paycheck

Today was our last day at Raytheon/Solidyn. After about 15 years as a software developer in the aerospace industry, I am retiring to pursue my own interests. I plan to do more reading, play the violin, and write the software that I want to write.


I’ve had some good experiences, made some friends, and learned some skills at work. But it has been a long time since I have enjoyed the job or found itĀ fulfilling.


I will mostly miss the non-work parts of work. The opportunity to meet interesting people, the daily walks by the golf course, and the geese.
