I haven’t had the time to brag about it last week, but on last Monday I managed to defend my thesis and graduate to finally become a certified software engineer. Having spent, well, quite a bit more time in the programme than originally planned and cca. 5 years working in IT, it was high time it happened.
It was a great opportunity to celebrate it at the sales kick-off conference we held at the end of the week. I gave a presentation there about Shell Control Box and held a workshop the next day together with Marton, but the bigger part of the job was to talk with the guests, answer their questions, find out their opinion about our products — and of course, to make sure they have a good time during their whole stay. I hope we did well in the former (the sales figures of the year will give a good feedback about that), but I’m pretty confident we excelled in the last one: it brought a huge smile to my face when at some point during the party we held Friday evening, a guy from one of the partners from the other end of the world just shouted into my ear while dancing: “BalaBit rocks!”
Big up and thanks to everyone involved in the organization of the event — you did a great job.
