Movin on up, Movin on out

So I have a new job! I handed in my 4 weeks notice to the DRC and am moving on to! I must say thank you to 3months for letting me start in a part time manner so that the DRC wouldn’t be left in the lurch while my workmate is on 6 weeks leave, and so I can get the projects I’m currently working on at DRC out the door.

So I start part time at 3months on August 8, and I’m told while I will still be doing XHTML, CSS and PHP, I will be doing more XML and XSLT related work, along with picking up some Python and working with Plone and Zope. Scary stuff seeing as I don’t know much about working with those last three; I told them I was prepared to learn Python at the ‘interview’, and that I’ve tried to do a little Python here and there, but I have yet to use it for something non-trivial. However, I’m prepared to take the learning curve 🙂

I am however, really excited about working in a Agile environment. Everything I’ve read about Agile makes perfect sense. The values it upholds in the Agile Manifesto just seem to resonate that there is a solution to the project problems in all the organisations I’ve worked for to-date.

I’m really looking forward to it.

  1. Congratulations! I haven’t worked with them myself, but from what I’ve seen they do some cool stuff for government.

  2. Congrats! That rocks and nothing better than having a job that stimulates and keeps the grey matter active.

  3. […] search for things we posted about only a week ago, we’re on the first page on Google!
    * I got a new job! I start that in August, going full time the first workday in October. […]

  4. Congrats Brett! Keep us posted on how you find the Agile process. I didn’t know there was another company using Zope in NZ – apart from IOpen and Chris. It’ll be interesting to see how 3months rates .Net vs Zope.
