My Last Day at Adobe

After working in Macromedia/Adobe for ten years I decided to quit Adobe. Today was my last day at Adobe.

The last ten years at Adobe have been professionally and personally very satisfying for me. I have worked on some of the most technically challenging assignments in my career so far. Learnt a lot and put my learnings back into the products I worked on.

On the last day when I was reflecting on my journey in Adobe, I recall my interview as a candidate. Macromedia did not have an office at that time in Bangalore and I was interviewed in Windsor Manor hotel. I was the first engineer recruited for ColdFusion in Bangalore. When I joined the ColdFusion team, ColdFusion 7 release was in the final stages. I started with fixing a few bugs towards the end of the release. After that I worked on many features of ColdFusion and ColdFusion Builder in the subsequent releases.

Till a couple of months back I was not thinking about quitting Adobe. But then an opportunity came along that was so different from the way I was working in Adobe that I decided to take it up. I might write more about it later.

My best wishes to the ColdFusion team and the ColdFusion community.

P.S. I joined back Adobe in June 2015.

  1. Best of luck at your new posting mate.

    We might not have seen eye-to-eye all the time, but I always thought you were one of the best bods in the ColdFusion Team, mate. This will be a loss for Adobe, ColdFusion and the CF Community. But obviously it’s a good move for you, so congratulations!


  2. Congratulations buddy. Wishing you a lot of success and personal fulfillment on this next step on your career, appreciate all you did and communicating with the community. All the best.
