Week 0

So, as many of you know, I’ve started a new job. Goodbye public access cable (for now), hello web development. I’m going to be doing extensive Drupal/PHP work. I’m not the biggest fan of PHP, but it gets the job done, and it’ll challenge me to write better code.

So far, I’ve got my new MacBook Pro setup, including Parallels running Debian, NetBSD, OpenBSD, and soon, Ubuntu and RedHat (maybe Fedora).

I’ve had my first meeting with the CEO, CTO and director of my office. Good Folks, and I think I’ll enjoy the people aspect of this company. I will really miss my old coworkers, though 🙁

There’s a good list of customers, though some are predicting a crash in the marketplace. We’ll see how that plays out.

There is a big need better front-end communication. That’s my boss’ job. He’s a user experience guy, so he should be able to make things a little smoother on that end. The culture is still forming, and by all means, the new office will have its own culture to a degree. Next week, we’re off to the Cali office for training and face-to-face with the rest of the company. WooHoo!
