So, been on this project for a little over a week, and it’s already getting press. Ha ha, I think this was a good time to come on board!
Boeing held their grand opening for the new gallery facility they’ve built for the purpose of configuring new 787’s – of which the software I’m working on plays a central part. Employees and family were invited… oh and I was too. :) Didn’t get to attend as I was here, but I’m going out next week and our guy said he’d give us a tour for sure.
There are a few screen shots in the news clip here: Virtual Rollout of the B787
Meanwhile… my job has been off to a very slow start. The guy I’m here to take a load off of has been on vacation for a week, and is off again today and tomorrow (to work with Lucas Arts, by the way – have I mentioned we have high profile clients? Not bad for a 40 person company.) So I’m doing a lot of self study. Oh well, I guess this might be typical, but this feeling like I don’t know what is going on is incredibly foreign, and frustrating to me.
The best thing so far about this job? I have a bus pass, AND a bus that starts from 10 minutes from my house to 2.5 blocks away from my office. It's a 50 minute ride and runs during commuting hours every 15 minutes. It's FABULOUS! I'm getting a lot of reading done on the bus, and am loving it.
