Pagi menjelang siang seperti biasa saya memeriksa inbox e-mail saya. Kali ini saya mendapati subject yang menarik, yaitu “Congrat to James Gosling (firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list)”. Pada email tersebut Frans Thamura berbagi tautan tentang James Gosling yang sekarang bekerja di Google. Saya telusuri tautan tersebut dan berikut adalah kutipan yang saya baca
I find myself starting employment at Google today. One of the toughest things about life is making choices. I had a hard time saying ‘no’ to a bunch of other excellent possibilities. I find it odd that this time I’m taking the road more travelled by, but it looks like interesting fun with huge leverage.
No word yet on what James will be working on, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this job offering is connected to Oracle’s lawsuit against Android. However, I’m sure a vast number of companies were planning on courting Gosling to join their ranks. It’s probably not a coincidence that Gosling has been taking the last year off. It’s possible that he was under a 1-year non-compete contract with Oracle.
So, let’s wait and see the next step. Enjoy!
