I received an overwhelmingly warm welcome as the new chief scientist at Steria

I am changing employers. As of October 1st, I will no longer be lead software architect at BBS Nordic. Instead, I will be the chief scientist at the Norwegian division of Steria.

This weekend, I was invited to join my new employer at their gathering at a resort in the south of Norway. I’ve had a chance to speak with a lot of my new colleagues, and I was overwhelmed by the number of skilled, thoughtful and friendly people.

Steria has lots of very talented people, and I’m still looking for the best way to help the organization in my new role. I hope I can personally teach a lot of people the architecture and testing techniques that I’ve learned over the last years, and I hope I can help the people who actually produce the results that are needed at the end of the day get a stronger voice with our management and our customers.

Watch the thrilling story: What happens when you take a domesticated programmer out of his natural habitat and put him into a new world. Will be be overwhelmed by the differences, or will he be a new invasive species in the foreign ecosystem?

(Yes: I will insist that my proper title should still be JustAprogrammer. How long will I get away with it?)

    Dear chief scientist

    How come that fire is put out when you puff at a match, while a forest fire increases in high winds?

  • Dear Curious: The type of wood used in matches is selected to resonate negatively with wind. This is done so that you won't burn your fingers.

  • Congrats on your new job! And welcome back to the consulting buffét :)
