It’s hard to believe that I’ve been doing Crystal Reports for 16 years now. I remember reading Microserfs by Douglas Coupland around 1995 when I lived in Whistler. I applied to work at Microsoft, but at the time had no specialized computing skills. I was so enthralled by the idea of working for a software company. Turned out Seagate Software was the hot thing in Vancouver at the time, so after going back to school for that specialized knowledge, I got hired there. Never thought I’d be hitching my career to that star for such a long time.
