Finally in Washington!
After a few months trying to survive this pandemic in New York, it is actually encouraging to be in a safer place. I just hope I didn’t catch it during my journey.
New environment, new house, new boss, new colleagues, and new work. Michael and Byungik are very cool and helpful people, I think I will enjoy working with them. I like that there is so much nature around here but dislike the unreliable Wi-Fi at my house.
Even though I have to serve a 2-week quarantine (just in case), we started digitally working in a new project called Smartwiki. Quite interesting and ambitious. I like challenges, so I’ll try my best to learn and develop new skills to work on it. Also, involved in this project, we have three knowledgeable guys that I was told I can consider my mentors. I really appreciate that this time, I have the option to ask for help and guidance if I need it.
Even after working on several companies that claim to use agile methodologies on daily basis but don’t practice it at all, LiftPort is the first one actually using that approach (And Michael didn’t even mention ‘agile’ a single time). Sprints, daily meetings, reviews, feedback, and small tasks to reach big objectives. So far, the closest to agile theory I learned in school.
Next week, I will be able to go to the office. I haven’t shown any clear symptoms so far, I guess I didn’t catch it or maybe I was a symptomless case since statistics state 1 in 5 New Yorkers got it, and most of them didn’t even realize. Who knows?
