I was doing really well with posting more regularly, but I got bogged down in loads of work recently.
Learning WPF is really a lot of fun. I’ve done the Microsoft learning courses and have started through Charles Petzold’s gigantic book on the subject (called Applications=Code+Markup). I’m really convinced that WPF will make a huge change in the way we use software in the future.
I’ve also taken on a contract (starting next week). I’ll be working for a London consultancy building MIS applications for another investment bank. I’ll give more details later (just in case it falls through at the last second).
I wasn’t looking for a project, but a friend called me about this one and it really took my fancy. I must be getting geekier–I wasn’t interested until he told me about the technologies they’re using. My CV wasn’t even up to date. I’m very excited about it.
So, in addition to the offshoring projects–I’m back into London to do some coding myself.
