Back after a long break.....
So this is my first post in a while, mostly because I've been away from the office for the best part of seven weeks. This has been due to take-it-or-loose it holiday and training that my company has sent me on.
The holiday time was great, with some of it spent back home with the folks attending a family wedding and some of it spent in Rome.
Last weekend also saw the third annual 24x24, 24 hours watching the third season of 24 in sync, so starting at 1:00pm. Always much fun, this year was a little different as I'd not seen the season before this.
The training I went on was, hmmmm shall we say "interesting". It was a week long Business Analysis course and three days of Introduction to Consultancy Skills. Most of the company went on both of these, as they are seen as key skills, even for developers. Certainly opened my eyes to a different way of working.
As part of the Consultancy Skills course I took the Belbin test to discover my preferred team working roles. A little worryingly I got zero for the co-ordinator role, however I scored highly on the specialist and completer-finisher roles which does seems to make sense.
Anyway, more technical postings to come, just thought I'd get a hello post in there first.
