I started my new job today. Apart from a minor hitch, in that my computers haven’t yet arrived, it has gone very well. I was able to use someone else’s machine today and took my laptop in this afternoon to give me access to various development tools that I wanted and have already made some progress on a potential redesign for the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedic Surgery website.
The main challenge for these first few days is not technical but about absorbing the wide range of new information about people, faces and corporate culture needed to slot in as part of the team. Fortunately, I seem to have landed among a very friendly and helpful bunch, so no worries there.
