It starts Monday. It looks like it will be a blast and it's going to be working with technologies that I've wanted to explore, but never had the chance. To make it even better, pair programming and test driven development is part of how they do things. Life is good.
I should consider myself lucky. I previously turned down two job offers. That was risky, but it was the right thing to do. After the disastrous job in Amsterdam, I told myself that I was going to be as careful about accepting a job as I would be in offering one and I think it's paid off.
