New Job!!!

OK, it's time for me to make my rare post again. This time I get to talk about my new job. I am now an employee of UC Davis. I know, I know... Amanda stops working for Davis and I turn around and start a month later. But I needed it. I've been working from home for IBM for 8 years. It's nice to be in an office environment again... and with all of the changes going on in IBM, I think it was a good preemptive move. Don't get me wrong, IBM had given me some great opportunities, but it was definitely time for a change.

I actually officially started on Sept 22, but I was in class for the first week, so this week is my first week in the office. I'm officially a UC Davis employee, but for the next 2 years, 95% of my time will be spent working for the Kuali Project. Kuali is a consortium of universities writing programs for universities. It's an open-source project and I'll be working with people at schools all over the US. I'm really excited about it. I'm sure I'll post more once I get settled.
