So Much Has Changed

It has been a while since I last posted but for good reason. I recently graduated and started a new job so things have been very different.

I was lucky enough to land myself a job as a graduate firmware engineer before I had even finished my degree. I sat my last exam at the end of May and started my job a week later. Since then I have officially graduated and have settled into my new job.

The firmware that I work with is written in C. It turns out that this is just a small part of a much bigger system of build tools, continuous integration, testing and process tools. Most of these are written in Python and engineers are encouraged to write their own scripts to make tasks quicker. And then there are the other tools like JIRA and subversion, all of which need familiarization. Needless to say there has been a lot to learn over the last 6-7 weeks but I’m enjoying it.
