Well, I had my first day at the new job. As always with these things, I was introduced to a bewildering array of new people and systems and jargon and processes. The people are all really friendly though, and I can honestly say that they’re the most professional company I’ve worked for in the IT industry. (When I got to work this morning, I had a desk, stationery, employee handbooks, email address, everything. It was brilliant.) It turns out that today was the monthly combined birthday party and welcome for the new people, so we had cakes outside in the morning. That was nice. Then at lunchtime, I had my first game of foosball with the other guys on the PHP team. (My team lost, but I’m still a little rusty. I’ll improve.) So all in all, it felt less like a first day and more like a birthday party! The only negative so far is that there’s FREE Diet Coke in the fridge, calling to me. It’s like I’m being tested or something.
And yep, this site is a portal for employee blogs. I met the guy who set it up today. Which is cool, except now I’m self-conscious that I post five times as much as the rest of them!
