Throughout my 20s, I continued experimenting trying different things racing bikes and boats, and constantly changing jobs. It didn’t take me long to discover that the most interesting and rewarding programming jobs were found at a cluster of companies located south of Stanford University and north of San Jose. Silicon Valley was in its infancy. I was still in my 20s when I went to work for my first Silicon Valley startup, Amdahl, where we developed the world’s fastest mainframe computer, faster than anything IBM had. Next stop was Ampex where we built the world’s largest digital data storage system. Then onto Precision Instruments where we built an even larger data storage system, this time using lasers. I was the Vice President in charge of software development. It was all very cutting edge and challenging and cool. I liked my work most of the time, but I didn’t love it. I searched and I searched, but I just could not find a software engineering job that I loved as much as I loved sailing. So I tried to create one. I put together a plan to start my own company. That way, I could completely control my work environment. I would hire the most talented programmers I knew, and we would all work together on the most interesting and challenging software projects. My goal was to create the perfect job for me, a job I truly loved.
