    Sounds like a plan!

      but setting priorities based on Phoronix forum posts are very effective!

        Well, here's to hoping that one of your "embedded customers" is willing to sink millions to help you guys work on Gallium3d-based desktop OpenGL, rather than going off somewhere in the tumbleweeds and having you work on some specific embedded technology, like Android support for AMD Fusion. That'd be cool and all, but (1) probably not open source, and (2) useless to me.

        It's not like I'm a real customer anyway; I've only sunk about $2000 in graphics cards over the last 5-6 years....
        but.,.. this "embedded customer" is very helpfully.. because its Google

        and you talk about Android but this is not about android its about chromeOS

        and google really try to hurt microsoft very hard!

          maybe google is more frendly to opensource and they just don't like the catalyst

            be sure they hire what they can get. no matter 1 month or 2 month ...

            its simple if amd do not hire you then intel does or nvidia or google or arm people.

            ... so don't worry... you get a job.

              This would be a dream job for me too. But right now I'm still 2 years away from graduating.

                Yeah, I thumbnailed it as a possibility, but I'm at absolute best only able to work part-time for the next two years. I can't even do a summer internship type of thing as I'm already contracted as a TD on a small game project (hey, desktop Linux users will get to play this one! send your thanks to Google, Inc.). Being able to work on something like the GLSL/OpenCL compilers is basically a dream job, right next to being able to work on Fallout 4 or Dead Space 3.

                  Definitely. That's the best part of being excellent in your field. For all the economy doom and gloom, good programmers are damn hard to find, and the ones out there get gobbled up by a good company sooner rather than later.


                  Hey, Bridgman, out of curiosity, are you guys interested in having any part-timers working out of Redmond, WA? I know another kick-ass DigiPen student with serious graphics experience and Linux know-how who may be looking for an internship during his Senior year starting this fall. He's mentioned to me before that his dream job is working on Linux graphics. I'm gonna shoot that job application page his way, but I imagine that position is solely looking for a full-time dev. I can also possibly shoot some other amazing graphics folks your guys' way.

                      A poor choice of wording, I think

                        Heh, this is excellent PR for AMD. Q is right as usual.

                        I doubt anyone here would mind working for AMD, well maybe Deanjo

                          I sure wouldn't mind working for AMD! I should keep my eye on this since I graduate in a year.
