Hello, Flux

Bye, FreeWheel

07年10月,我结束了在加州Bosch半年的实习,回北京毕业加上找工作。那时候在四个大大小小的公司实习过,做过悠闲的螺丝钉也做过996的接地气创业公司。找工作的时候想的倒也简单:找个不怎么加班的创业公司(现在想想这还真挺难)。在9#上看到Di的一篇招工文,就懵懵懂懂的来了FreeWheel开始实习,写Ruby on Rails。 刚来不久就发现其实还是要加班的。07年底的时候想上线1.0版本,于是在办公室附近订了几个旅馆房间,员工都干到半夜十二点然后去住那里。我那会儿还实习,一周只上两三天班,但也有幸体验了一两次。还好事实证明之后的这些年里,我需要加班的时候并不多。 那会儿我做的第一个功能是用户登录和权限控制。当时我的感觉是这你们都让实习生做,也是挺敢的。弄了几周做出来了,还附赠了一个巨简陋的登录后首页。没想到那首页一用就用了五六年。现在美化过的版本还是隐隐有当年的影子。
