He was recruited to be a technician in the beginning. And then as he was working full time, he got his bachelor's degree in double E at Santa Clara. And then he went on to get his master's degree in double E and computer science at Stanford. At age 31 he was the youngest vice president at Intel, and then he became the first CTO at Intel. In 2010 he was recruited by EMC in Boston to be the COO. And then in 2012 he was the CEO of VMware in the Bay Area. Pat and his wife Linda have four children. And today, he is going to speak about his book, "The Juggling Act, Bringing Balance to Your Faith, Family, and Work." Please welcome Pat Gelsinger. [APPLAUSE] PAT GELSINGER: Thank you, Petula. Great to be here with you today. I'll cover a little bit about my story. As we go along, we'll dig into this subject of juggling a little bit. I didn't try to embarrass myself with the juggling balls, but maybe afterward I will. We'll see. And then a little bit about being a Christian both in the workplace and in the Bay Area. And then we'll open up for Q&A and talk about whatever else you feel like as well. So be informal and interactive. So a little bit about my story. I was born and raised in Pennsylvania. And if you've ever been to the Amish Country in Pennsylvania, the ultra, ultra conservatives, the Amish-- they haven't accepted any new technology since 1869. And then there's the Mennonites who are, like, really conservative, but less so than the Amish. And then there's the Pennsylvania Dutch. And that's what I was growing up. So compared to the Amish we were really liberal. But by all means very, very conservative farm community. My dad was eighth of nine children. So son number one had a farm, son number two, daughter number one-- it got down to at number eight, and my grandfather said, we have enough farms in the family. Just work with your brothers. Otherwise I'd be a farm boy in Pennsylvania today. And when I came out to Intel I knew a lot more about cow chips than computer chips at the time. At six days old I was baptized with full knowledge of what I was doing in our church, and became president of the youth group at 12 years old, and those types of things. And I thought I was a Christian just because I was born and raised in that environment. There was one good reason to go to church. That was to meet girls or impress their mothers or grandmothers. And other than that, I was just rotten the other 6 and 1/2 days of the week. I ended up skipping my last year of high school. I accidentally took a scholarship exam to get a tech degree. So I ended up skipping my last year of high school, getting my associate's degree. So literally, I graduated from high school with my tech degree in the summer of a '79 at 18 years old. And Intel came recruiting. So there was sort of an industry-wide shortage of technicians. So Intel came from the West Coast to recruit and invite me on a trip to come to California. And the guy who was interviewing, Ron Smith was his name, he interviewed 12 people that day. And any of you who've done a lot of interviewing, you know at about number six, you sort of lose track of John versus Joe. And about number nine, you lose track of Jane versus John. And I was number 12 on his interview list. And this is what he wrote about me after the interview. He said, smart, aggressive, arrogant. He'll fit right in. So I got invited to come to interview with Intel. 18 years old and I had never been on an airplane. At 18 years old, you're getting invited for free trip to California. And they even through in I could stay for the weekend. So how long you think it took me to decide to take the trip? About a nanosecond. Yeah, sure. I'm taking a free trip to California. First time an airplane. But I promised my mom before I left, no way am I moving to California. I mean, they're crazy out there. Earthquakes and cults and stuff. I'm a farm boy in Pennsylvania. No problem. I'm staying here. But after I came and interviewed with Intel, they made me a job offer. And the thing that convinced me to go to Intel more than anything else as a technician, I wanted to be the engineer on the other side of the table telling the tech what to do. That was my whole career ambition summed up the one thing. | want to sit on that side of the table. And they had a tuition reimbursement program. So as long as I was working 30 hours a week or more and getting passing grades, they would pay for all my school. So I got my bachelor's at Santa Clara, did my master's at Stanford, was working on my Ph.D. At Stanford-- all of that paid for by Intel. And I was a poor farm boy, so this is pretty good. So I took the job with Intel, moved out here at the ripe old age of 18, and then started working full time and going to school full time. And light-weight programs like Santa Clara, no problem. Graduate programs like Stanford while you're working full time, no problem. Ph.D.-- so this is pretty intense. Working full time, going to school full time, but I loved it. The first time I ever had a computer architecture class, it was like, that's what I want to do for the rest of my life. I was one of those kids you didn't want to be in the class with me. I had my first computer architecture class. I found out what the textbook was. Over the summer, I read the entire textbook, finished every problem in the textbook, and showed up on the first day of class having done the entire syllabus for computer architecture. Yeah. The professor-- it was a new textbook on computer architecture, Tenenbaum's computer textbook at the time-- he, the professor hadn't done past the second chapter yet in the class. So my notes became the notes for the class. But I was sort of manic about it in that way. I also-- when I came to California I thought I was a Christian. And I showed up, went to church on Sunday for what purpose? Meet girls and impress their mothers and grandmothers. It's that simple. So what did I do when I got to California? Went to church to meet girls and impress their mother and grandmothers. So walked down the street to Santa Clara Christian Church, and sure enough that first Sunday met Linda, who you'll meet in a little bit. I'll show a picture of her in a second. And she asked me early in our relationship if I was a Christian. And my answer was yes. I was baptized when I was six days old, president of the youth group, went to church every Sunday to meet girls. Of course I'm a Christian. And as we got to know each other, the church adopted me and it quickly became apparent that I was, at best case, a Sunday Christian, and a lot worse than that most other days of the week. And the sermon topic in February of 1980 was based on Revelation 3:15-16. . "I know your deeds, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish you were one of the other. But since you're neither cold or hot but lukewarm, I'm about to spit you out of my mouth." And that verse cut me to the heart because there I was, I like to feign Christianity on the one side, looking good. And on the other side was living my own life. And I came to that moment of crisis of my personal faith and said, I have to make a decision. And I was really challenged in that. And in February of 1980 made the decision to be hot for God, and made the decision to be a full-time Christian. And absolutely at that point made this fundamental, life changing decision. I'm going to be hot for God and live my life as a Christian in the workplace and what I do. So that's February of 1980. Just a couple of months later-- so I'm a baby Christian at this point, sort of figuring out what it really means to read the word, be in fellowship, all the other things associated with that-- and God puts on my heart in a deep and profound way, become a minister. And I'm like, I don't want to be a minister. I'm loving this tech stuff, computer architecture, knocking it out of the park at my job. That's the last thing I want to do. And I just wrestled with God for months about the idea of becoming a minister. It's like I don't want to be like-- just nothing about it attracted me. So I just wrestled with God, argued with him about it as I was praying. And after doing that for a couple of months, just couldn't let up in my heart and in the soul about it, and finally said, OK, God, I give up. If this happens, and I laid a-- you know, in the Bible they had a story where Gideon lays the fleece before God. The ground is dry, the fleece is wet. The next day the fleece is wet, the ground is dry. And I laid a fleece before God and said, if this happens, I will go into full-time ministry. And it was just finally giving up before God. And after laying that fleece before him, as soon as I did it, he came back and said, the workplace is your ministry. And then since that point in time, and my life verse at that point became Colossians 3:23-24. "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." And that's become my life view. I'm in the workplace. And whether I'm a low-level technician, a medium-level engineer, now CEO of a great software company, I'm working for the Lord Jesus Christ as my full-time CEO. It's great that I get us a paycheck from VMware. And You go online, you can check out-- I make too much money as a CEO. That's really cool. And I have a board of directors as well. You can check out all them online as well. But my full-time CEO is the Lord Jesus Christ. And my job, the platform, everything I'm given, is to be a workplace minister. And there's a few who are called to vocational ministry. But all of us who claim the name of Jesus Christ are called to be full-time ministers. In the workplace, in the home place, in the marketplace, in the school place, or wherever we are as Christians, we are called to be full-time ministers. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Now, also I do want to just emphasize a little bit that being a Christian and an engineer is often seen as contradictory. I believe in the scientific method. I have now four degrees, and absolutely committed to deep technical pursuit, data-driven capabilities.
