New gig

It’s been an interesting couple of months looking for a new job. Very slow at the beginning but things started to move faster around October. Finally having Australian citizenship also helped.

I left Haley to go back contracting. They’ve now announced that they were bought by Oracle. It’ll be interesting to see what happens with Haley’s products. Oracle interest seems to be solely on the Determinations Engine. In any case I wish everyone at Haley all the best in this new phase.

I will be starting at the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) on Wednesday.  Education and Employment were two separate entities that have now been merged (again). I had a couple of gigs before on the Employment side.

From what I heard on the interview I’ll be working with WCF and NHibernate.¬†I’m excited about going back to enterprise .Net development after 2 years away from this space. Microsoft has released so much stuff in this time that pretty much everything is new to me now. I’m looking forward to that. Also I finally get to work with an ORM like NHibernate.
