First Day in New Job
What a day! It’s been pretty sweet from the moment I walked in the door to finishing this evening I’ve had a great day! Not many places you can say that really. Last Friday I boarded a plane to move to the UK for a new adventure in working with a company I’ve been interested in joining for some time.
This morning I started working for Sirius here in the UK based in Weybridge. I’ll be working in Marketing Open Source to people/organisations/groups for the coming months and I’m really excited.
When asked what OS I wanted to use at work, it was rather simple for me to say Ubuntu, and folks to nod and chat and say what OS they used. This is in stark contrast to any other place I’ve worked at before so made me smile and feel right at home there! Which always helps when starting a new job. Played around with KDE before I wiped a machine and put a fresh install of Lucid on. Happy days!
The plan for the week is for me to review and go over past marketing strategies and come up with some ideas on things to do and attend or even better organise (which is one of my passions!)
I’ll keep folks updated on the progress and on any events I plan on attending here in the UK, looking forward to meeting more people over here now!
Really glad I made the move and joined Sirius, it’s going to be a fun few months ahead!
