Passed the 'Name Game'

NetApp RTP Engineering has a tradition called the “Name Game.” Every new employee to Engineering has to pass the “Name Game” as part of what seems like an initiation. At the end of the Engineering all-hands every other Thursday you have to go around the room and say everyone’s first name. At the end, everyone will vote to see if you pass or not. Well, I am happy to say I got a perfect 100% today. How many Engineers are there? Last count was 112. Yes, 112 RTP Engineers. Of course, not all of them make it to the meeting, but hey….I still got 100%. I got a nifty NetApp license plate holder thing, and various other items as part of passing. I’m happy it’s over…but it was fun.
