First Day…

Today, I started my job with Parity in Belfast.  I’ll be working in the support team.  Despite being labelled a developer in the past, I’m more than happy with this.  Over the past 5 years, I’ve spent more time maintaining and extending existing applications than on green field development.  As part of my introduction to the team, I was given a brief overview of the projects I’ll be working on over the next few months, and I can tell you the following:

  • I’ll be busy.
  • The work will be a mixture of bug fixing, implementing change requests and new development work.
  • I’ve have a lot to learn, as I’ll be working on solutions with technologies completely new to me (K2 anyone?).
  • I’ll be really busy.
    My new colleagues at Parity have been very welcoming, and I’m already impressed with the culture. People are left to get on with things, and to take responsibility for their own work.  Also, there isn’t a tide of paperwork to fight through in order to get things done.  What a relief!
      Anyway, time for bed.  I’m knackered.
