It’s been a month since I’ve been at my new employer. What’s different is that I’m more focused on a smaller set of technologies. On one side, I’m less exposed to the cutting edge. But now I can really focus on just a few technologies and become a subject matter expert.
That leads to me to say that you will be reading more about Microsoft technologies. It will be leaning on Active Directory, Exchange and SharePoint. Those are currently my primary areas of focus. I think they’re great topics and have lots of room for growth.
Networking will still be a large part of what I do since its what transfers the 1s and 0s. And it’s quite possible that I may be on a networking project.
My environment is definitely different. I’m going from a non-profit to a private equity firm. Huge change. I’m enjoying it. The people are great and fun to be around.
The current projects I’m looking at will help increase the productivity and reliability for the whole firm. It’s an exciting time to be in IT for the firm.
