Me and Niklas took our rental car and aimed for Palo Alto this morning. 50 minutes later we arrived at Nicira where Niklas works. After a smaller forgetting-the-wallet-incident I was on my way to Delphix. Something like 5-10 minutes by car later I was at the parking lot of Delphix. The very helpful reception staff helped me to find my way to the right place.
I spent an some time hanging out in the entrance chit chatting with random co-workers until Christian showed up. Christian is a Swedish guy from KTH which six months ago was in the same situation as I am now. He will be my go-to-guy for the nearest future.
The next two hours Christian showed me the computer system and helped me set up my workstation. At time of lunch I felt kinda misplaced, worried and uncomfortable. I didn’t understand a thing. Or almost. :)
We headed down to Palo Alto centrum to grab some lunch. I think we ended up in some place called Rangoon or something like that. I guess from the name that it was a Burmese place and the food was cheap ($6) and tasted like a mixture between Chinese and Thai food. I had the first of my life fortune cookie which was quite interesting.
Well back at Delphix I continued with some try-to-get-to-know-the-system activity. When the clock struck 5pm I got my self esteem back and felt quite comfortable with what I was doing.
I would sum up my first day as information-overload and realization that I will in the next coming months acquire a tremendous amount of new knowledge.
