New Job and New Topics

After about 3 months of silence I'd like to return to blogging. There are a couple of things that happened during my months of blogging silence. I also have a few neat ideas to implement here on this blog.

First and probably the most important thing that happened to me was a job change. I began may short career as a software developer at a company that can be described as small or medium (we are talking about 100 people here) and that company was later bought by a big international corporation (we are talking about 15 000 people here). Both companies had their pros and cons but I definitely enjoyed the smaller company more. And now I am in a small (or medium) company again!

As of August 1, I am a software engineer at Kainos, the largest IT consultancy in Northern Ireland. The company exists for over 20 years and is very mature and has very serious approach to quality. ISO, TickIT, you name it :). The headquarters are based in Belfast and I will be working in Polish branch of the company that opened a couple of days ago in the city I live in, Gdansk.

What is the most important thing for this blog is that I have shifted my focus from mainly business logic (which, by the way, was a terrific way to get hooked on TDD) to more technology focused position. I have joined the SharePoint team and for the last two weeks (well, almost) I am learning MOSS 2007 development. SharePoint seems to be a very exciting technology and gets a lot of buzz nowadays. It's a fresh product and there is much to be written on it.

The second thing is that I have never been really very much into Web development. I decided to change and learn some things about the Web and underlying technologies. It seems to me that now we have quite exciting times for this. JavaScript has its renaissance now, probably due to things like AJAX, Gmail and Firefox.

Some of you may think that it is too late for this kind of stuff and that this is no longer cool and fresh. I found it interesting only when it matured and went mainstream. I think it might be an interesting perspective.

In the end I'd like to mention that I opened a second blog, Just Curiosity, which will be less technology focused and less in-depth. .NET and development topics will remain the domain of this blog.
