First Day at the new gig

Well, I officially started my new employment today as a Notes Admin/Developer. I work for a major exhibit service vendor. They do everything exhibit related. They design, build, set-up and tear-down exhibits at trade shows. They also store and ship these things, as well as support brand management for clients. It’s a very cool company. It’s actually nice to do IT for a non-IT company for a change.

There are two main things that I really like about this place so far. The first is how committed they are to the Lotus platform. Full-on email, collaboration, instant messaging, and some really intensely cool web development that you would never know was Domino. They are also looking to do some really cool stuff in the future with things like RFID tracking tied to a Domino warehouse app they want to build. I’m going to get back to some hard-core coding, and I’m looking forward to it.

The second thing is the people. They are so damn friendly 🙂 I’m really not used to that. That’s not to say there weren’t good people at my last company, there were a core of people there that I will love forever, but it’s not the same as this place. Maybe it’s because right now there’s less stress, who knows. Either way, it’s a good thing.

I’ll keep you updated on how it’s going once I get into a good groove. Just need to get up-to-speed on everything. Time to play “learn all about your new job” again. I hate that game… hehe.
