That's how long I've been at the new job. One month. It has been a great change for me. The environment is great, the challenges are difficult, and best of all I'm happy to goto work again.
It's been two years since I've been happy to goto work. But now I look forward to the day. I develope and support a large perl codebase of production code. I've already added to this codebase and seen its effects on the user base. I like that. That's not something you get often in a sysadmin shop.
Maybe I should have made this jump earlier. I've just been afraid that my skilz weren't up to snuff and that'd be my downfall. We'll my skillz may not be top notch, but I'm learning that's not all it takes to be a full time developer.
