Time to Say Goodbye
It’s been more than a year since I joined Sela, and I’ve arrived to a point where I felt that it’s time to move on. I had a great time since I joined Sela, as I had the opportunity to deep-dive into some interesting technologies and meet some exceptional people. I would like to take this opportunity to thank some of them:
- Erez Fliess – My manager at Sela, and the person who (together with Alon) is responsible for me being there in the first place. From Erez I learned that the most important thing, before being a technology expert, is to be a person and a friend. Erez speaks with everyone at eye level and with respect and for that I am truly grateful.
- Alon Fliess – One of the greatest professionals I have ever met, and most importantly, a very good friend. With Erez, he convinced me to come to Sela. I’ve had many opportunities to work with Alon, both at Sela and beforehand, and it has always been a pleasure.
- Sasha Goldshtein – A gifted lecturer, writer and professional, and a person I truly enjoy working with. The only person with whom it is actually mind-blowing to watch him type on a keyboard.
- Ishai Ram – Ishai taught me a lot of what I know about lecturing and giving guidance, and I thank him for that. Without a doubt, when Ishai sets his mind on something it’ll be done in the best possible way. Thank you.
There are obviously tons of gifted professionals I worked with at Sela, and I would like to thank each and every one of you personally. I’ll still be giving lectures and teaching at Sela on various topics, so don’t be surprised to see me there!
Something of My Own
So what’s next, you might ask. Well, those who know me knew that I’ve been thinking to start something of my own for a while. As it turns out, good things come to those who wait as I had the opportunity to join a group of very talented people and form something new and interesting. These include Erez Fliess, Alon Fliess, Shay Friedman, Bernie Almosni, Ariel Ben-Horesh, Eli Arbel, Amir Zuker, Josh Reuben and Michael Kanevsky.
Bring on CodeValue
Ok, so you’re going to start your own company – how are you going to name it? While this may seem a trivial issue, it is one of the most difficult, time-consuming and important questions one should answer when starting a company, as a company with no name doesn’t actually exist.
But can you guess what is the #1 factor in choosing a name for your company? Well, if you guessed “an available domain name” you’re the lucky winner! Try it out. Think of good, short, catchy name and check for a “.com” or “.net” domain availability. Any success?
Well, after much thought CodeValue was eventually born. If you’re interested to learn more and keep in touch, check out our new website at http://codevalue.net and follow us via RSS, Twitter and Facebook.
