Pacific Stock & Bond Exchange
|Welcome to my musings about the workplaces I've inhabited. These pages follow in the tradition of my travel pages. I market myself on the pages dedicated to my résumé. The two ought not be confused.|
The summer, autumn, and winter of 2000 found me at the Pacific Stock & Bond Exchange in San Francisco, California. Hired as a Java programmer, I did most of my work (at least to date) in Perl, rushing new projects to completion in a very tight deadline.
With the formerly looming spectre of the Y2K catastrophic apocalypse behind us with neither a whimper nor a bang, and the process of decimalization underway (fond as I am of the old meaning of 'bit', as in 'shave and a haircut, two bits', I'm happier to never again have to figure stock prices in those incredibly annoying 12.5 cent increments), the time was right for the Pacific Stock & Bond Exchange (known in-house as the Pacific Exchange) to add some modern computing to both their intranet and extranet.
