First, I didn’t go looking for the job – it came to me. Second, I’m going to a department that I’ve worked with for almost three years and have almost become a part of twice. So, it doesn’t feel like much will change. The biggest change will be leaving behind the group I work with now. They’re a great group of guys, and I’ll miss them. But, I can’t stay just because I like them. I’ve done everything I could do in my current job and more.
It’s time to find a new challenge, and getting involved in the nitty-gritty of search and trying to change the philosophy of the group I’m going to is a pretty big challenge. So, you know it now too. You’ll probably be hearing a lot more from me about why I love search applications, and I may even share some cool code with you (that’s not used at work… just something I wrote for fun). Keep yer eyes peeled for that, and of course, the FlatCat book.
