Let me present myself, I am Max Meyer, and I am happy to welcome you to my blog! I am glad you got interested in my stories, in the sea of information, the Internet.
Who am I?
I am an American with European descent. From an early age, maybe 5-6 years old, I have been attracted to technology. My dear father was an electrical engineer, and he used to show me how things work. I have disassembled and assembled countless radios and home gadgets. This knowledge helped me fix my Nintendo many times.
Later I was getting some money aside while I was studying at the university by fixing electronics.
I finished with a computer degree – Bachelor in Computer Science.
In this personal blog, I will try to be least biased as possible, and I won’t share the names of companies I was working too.
After I finished my studies, I stayed in California, and I started my professional career. It was the early 80s, and Silicon Valley was hot. Everybody wanted to be there and taste the future. Microsoft was getting big and working with IBM, Apple went public already, and it was the best time for a young tech grad.
I started as an intern in one of the big computer companies at the time. I got lucky, and I managed to get a job there. I was doing what I loved, tinkering computers!
I learned to code, but my passion will always be the hardware.
It was a fascinating time, incredibly dynamic. In the late 90s, the company where I started was on a decline. It was painful to watch when most of the competitors were going massive. It was my time to continue, to leave the nest.
I moved several times in different companies until the early 2000s. I try my luck both in small companies and in big corporations.
Now I am still working in one of the big tech companies, and I am pleased with my position.
