One Week In

Well it's almost a week into the new contract and so far things are looking good. I have never worked in a purely IBM shop before and it's a very refreshing change with all of the latest versions of software being used from DB2 right up to Domino 7.0.1 on some of the servers. They've got me working on an interesting project which involves Web Services integration and PDF generation both of which are relatively new to me.

The environment is nice and relaxed and the rest of the guys on the floor have been very forgiving with all of my stupid new-boy questions. We'll see how the social side is tomorrow night with a trip out to a pub or two.

Overall it's good to be back doing what I enjoy in an environment which just lets you get on with it. And joy of joys I haven;t even encountered any politics (yet!).
