Today we set up Coverity’s Seattle office! I’ve spent the day unpacking boxes and booting machines and discovering why it is a bad idea to ship desktop machines with the hard disks in them. Aside from a minor hard disk mishap, everything has gone very smoothly. Special thanks to my colleagues Deidre and Jeff, who came up from San Francisco to get the network humming and make sure everything was taken care of.
The view from my office is, to say the least, awesome. (Click on the images for larger versions.)
I haven’t gotten around to untangling all the wires yet, but we’re basically good to go here.
Next time on FAIC: I’ll start a short series on the uses and abuses of the static constructor.
