Today I began working in a new Rails development role at the Australian Medical Council. This is the second job I have taken since I have moved to Canberra, and I am looking forward to digging in my heels in here.
Shortly after arriving here, I took up a web systems administration position at the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy. This was a good opportunity to see the inner working of government, and I enjoyed working with a fun and motivated team.
It's refreshing to be back into a hands-on programming role at the AMC. Along with my friend Hugh, we'll be introducing some new, agile development practices while moving most of the organisation's VB-based internal systems to the web with Rails. It's going to be a lot of fun and I sense that it will be a good opportunity for growth and learning. I'll be sure to pass along anything useful that I come across. Watch this space!
