  1. Hi Arun!

    I found your blog about Java and couldn’t resist reaching out toy out and asking if you’d be open to opportunities with Siri team at Apple?

    We’re very much interested in brilliant Java engineers, that want to work on a consumer product like Siri.

    Send me an email, and let’s set-up a time chat:

    Thanks for your time, and looking forward to, hopefully, hear from you!
