One of my friends that had been at Claris contacted me about a position at his company, Connectix. They needed Mac engineers to work on Virtual PC, an application that pretended to be PC hardware so Windows could run. At this time, the Mac processor was on Power PC, but Windows was running Intel. So, Virtual PC provided an emulator that took Intel-compiled problems and ran them on the Power PC.
At the interview, we talked a lot about my assembly language experience, and my API experience in Mac and Windows. I thought it went well.
Not well enough. I was informed that they liked my experience, but really needed somebody with more low-levels Windows experience, like device drivers. They would keep my resume on file in case something came up.
Still waiting for that call…
