Pace and Delivery

It’s always good to lift one’s head up from the trenches, take a look back and soak in the glory of progress. That’s what I did today on behalf of the amazing engineering team I get to work with and here’s what I saw:

Over the last two quarters, between 4 Application Engineers, 1 Development Manager, 1 QA Engineer, 1 Program Manager (me!) & one part-time Search Program Manager, working on 6 applications, the team drove the following to fruition:

  • 30 application upgrades
  • 225 change requests
  • supported 6 of Sun’s applications that saw ~60 million page views and 21.4 million search results

All while infusing respect and humor into our day-to-day activities. I consider myself lucky to be on a team with these guys. Congrats Allen, Igor, Matthew, Rama, Ramsci, Rob, Shawn and our leader who enables our pace and delivery, Will!

To see the goodness for yourself, check out Sun Forums, Wikis, Mediacast, Planets, Search and of course this very site Sun Blogs.

    Awe gee, thanks Linda! You have a great team, and you underestimate the value of your drive to get things done – and you keep me laughing at the same time. Well mostly…

    Thanks for lending Matthew to the RSS project (yeah, you know the one) and putting up with my visible frustration! Looks like you guys really are busy. šŸ˜‰

    Hey! What about us Solaris grunts who make the platform available for your applications? Don’t we deserve some recognition? šŸ˜‰
