The First Week

If you had told me just a couple years ago I would be working for Freed-Hardeman, I'd have laughed. But here I sit, in BK17, already working on a handful of projects. I've truly hit the ground running even though I've only been here for a week.

At the beginning of the week, my first project was to do some research on version control systems we could begin using for our work. For those who don't know, this allows us developers to work on the same projects without having to share computers or manually send files to one another. A system has been chosen and configured, but the true test will be next week when we hopefully deploy the product and put it to use.

Another thing I've been working on is the initial data discovery for the Icinga dashboard user interface to be used for campus system monitoring. This has been a chore because of the large amount of data available, but I'm slowly discovering what we need. I can't wait to see this in action on campus.

Oh, and my office is slowly coming together... that is, if I had something to put on these bare walls and empty bookshelves.
