What I have learned so far at my new job

I have been at my new job for about seven weeks now, which is about when you really get settled in, the honeymoon is over, the productivity is up, and the bitching really gets ramped up. Or at least that’s how it has been for me. And so I present, in no particular order, what I have learned, so far, at my new job:

  • What bash stands for, and how to use it a bit.
  • That I can never escape Japanese translation, not ever.
  • Strategy games mean board games with dragons on them.
  • What the malloc function does.
  • Process: I didn’t really appreciate it until it was gone.
  • Illy coffee doesn’t upset my stomach like most brewed coffee.
  • Marketing and sales people do exist, and they really are quite different than engineers.
  • There are worse source control systems than CMVC.
  • That I have more skills, experience, and talents than I realized.
  • Working in San Francisco really is awesome.

  1. You know what I noticed- the more consumer & retail the company- the better the sales & marketing.
