Coming back…

August 16th, 2004 Comments Off on Coming back…

A mere ten months after I changed jobs, I’m back the company I used to work for.

When I left, I was really needing a break. As I said then, I was tired from doing the same old boring programming. Ten months were a good enough break.

Now, back to my former employer, I will certainly maintain some of the system I complained about in the past. But my perspective is now different, and I’m ready for the challenge. And I’m also learning new technologies. I spent the past week getting reacquainted with .NET, a platform I knew only superficially. Despite some problems, it’s a nice plataform. (Heresy, I hear some say — especially coming from a open-source fan.)

Although my stay at the other job wasn’t what I planned, I learned a lot and left friends behind. It was a good opportunity to think about my career and my intentions for the future.

As a result, I know have a clearer vision of what I want to do, both in my programming career and in the other areas of my life. Ironically, my home computer is becoming more and more a glorified text editor as I move away from development outside my job.

It’s nice to be back.
