Since everyone else is writing blogs these days and because I don’t want to feel like I am being left behind, I have finally taken the plunge and decided to start my very own.
Well partly! I suppose my main motivation comes from wanting to keep in touch with friends and uni people and extending an arm to those people I cant find the time to email.
Since this is the first entry and I originally “intended” to start blogging shortly after finishing Uni, it would only be right that the first entry contain a synopsis of my life over the last couple of months. So here it goes…
After finishing uni I worked as a bar tender in my hometown of Stafford at Après, visited Prague in the Czech Republic, moved down to Reading – the UK’s very own Silicon Valley and started my proper job with Oracle as a Technology Consultant in Applications.
I finished my technical boot-camp around 4 weeks ago and have since been doing my stint in Customer Services.
Over the last couple of days the Customer Service team has sent me all over the country. On Wednesday I found myself at the UKOUG (UK Oracle User Group Conference) in Birmingham, on Thursday I could be found somewhere in South-Wales for a management and leadership conference and on Friday I wound up back in Birmingham for the last day of the UKOUG. Lots of traveling but all good fun nonetheless.
Apart from swanning around all over the place, I’ve been working on an internal system developed in Application Express/HTMLDB and will hopefully be finishing this off over the next couple of days. Unfortunately this will have to include some of my weekend as its becoming crunch time. I’ll post an entry regarding my experiences with HTMLDB as I’ve got lots to say on it. Hopefully someone will want to here it.
So long and thanks for all the fish.
