As I’ve mentioned on more than one occasion, for me being retired means every day is Saturday. I really like being retired, except in the winter. When the temperature gets below 20ºF (about 6ºC), and the wind is howling, I don’t want to leave the house. I need something to keep my brain occupied.
I have a passion for technology, particularly that which emanates from that fruit company in Cupertino. From 1999 through 2011 I was employed first for two years working with Oracle databases, then for eight years performing low-level programming (5-years in Unix, 3-years in a web app using Jscript). In addition to writing my own code, I was responsible for QAing what other programmers had written.
Now, I’m a little old lady with a great big Mac (and some iOS devices). I think I can parlay my experience into doing beta testing for developer’s applications. Upon my return home from the Release Notes conference I began sketching out a business plan; I’ll have more on that in another post. In the meantime, I’m ready to do some testing.
