Hello Proteo!

Today I took up my new role as Lead Developer/Architect at Proteo. 

They do a number of really interesting products; check out their website!

I have an idea of what I will be doing, but all will be revealed over the next few weeks.

Its going to be an exciting time. 2 weeks after I start there is an office move. I got to visit the new office today.

Goodbye Co-operative work family

This week I’m taking up a new challenge and moving to Proteo – It’s not only a job change but a relocation up to Norwich.  Its a huge change and a big challenge, but its one I’m very much looking forward to. 

I am leaving behind my ‘work’ family, all the people I have known over the last 6 years, people I have spent 45 hours week with, through thick and thin, good times and incredibly stressful times.  But now with the *unsocial media of Facebook and twitter I can still badger them and try to get them to go to the Southampton SQL Server User Group or the Southampton NxtGen user group.

I would like the thank my close work family (the Guys and Girls in Eastleigh) but also the cousins in Manchester and Stoke.  I will miss everyone of you! 

I am also temporary leaving behind Zara, Tabitha and Matilda – but not for long, they will be following me up very very soon.


*How social can social networking be, when you do it on your own? Doesn’t that defeat the point of being social?

And Finally in the words of Peter Cook & Dudley Moore…

Goodbye… (YouTube)

“Goodbye, we wish a fond goodbye, fa-ta-ta-ta-ta, fa-ta-ta-ta”
