I'm now jobful

Seems like I'm now a senior something-or-other at Cypra Media, which did cause me a bit of grief. It's a "targeted marketing" company, meaning at the moment that they'll be sending out emails with ads in them to people who, weirdly enough, asked for it.

I would have liked maybe a bit more "completely new and different" maybe, and while they seem open-minded, they're not quite an actual free/open source software company, merely using a lot of it. But C++ and Perl are two of my favourites at the moment (mostly for their ratio of how much I can bend them to my will to how much they suck), and I think I might be in for learning some AJAXy JavaScript hackery in the process, which I've been meaning to do for a while, so that's that. They're Scrum fans there, which is better than being, say, RUP! Still, I'm more of a chaos model type of person, myself. We'll see, I want to try Scrum first, as it doesn't look completely nuts.

So I'll be starting there as soon as tomorrow!

Congratulations, man! You'll see: Ajax is a lot of fun too. Maybe more than C++ and Perl (sure you'll like to calculate the ratio for this one yourself)...

Confartulations. As for scrumming and all that my experiences is that all scrum really is is just a short tell-us-what-you're-doing meeting rather than an actual development methodology. But my PMs might have misunderstood it... after all, they're only PMs ;-)
