Dublin ho! Google job accepted

Posted in: Google, What am I up to

Following what has probably been one of the toughest decisions I've ever made I'm leaving London after four years and moving to Dublin to work at Google doing this. Pencilled-in start date is Feb 6th. There is some contractual addenda to ensure there's no conflict of interest between Google's and Real Programmers' projects but otherwise it's on.

The only thing I know for sure so far is that I'll have a Mac laptop and Linux desktop (I got to choose), and that the training will be in Mountain View, California for about three months.

Well done that man !

I trust there will be a suitably large send off ?

Hee hee, yep, reckon so!

In any case, Dublin's not that far really, about an hour on the plane, and the tickets on Ryanair had be easily had for 99p each way. And now everyone that knows me will have crashspace for Ireland trips ;-)

None of my Irish buddies use RyanAir... they reckon Aer Lingus is worth the extra fifteen quid!

In any case, has anyone contacted the Irish press to warn them what is about to hit their shores? I think they should be told...
