After 10 years in Austin (6 for my wife), we recently moved to the bay area. It was certainly a difficult choice given the number of close friends we have in Austin, but we decided that it was essential for our career growth. While the silicon hills - as some call Austin - is pretty good in terms of opportunities, it still pales in comparison to the silicon valley, and we decided to make this change now since it was time for a job change anyway.
So, good bye Austin! We will certainly miss you. Actually we will miss the folks we know there more than the place itself.
I am sure we will be making the SJC-AUS circuit quite regularly...
And from now on, I will be posting about the different things we try out here in the bay area! Lots and lots of things to do around here!
