First day at the new job
A quick report: today was my first day Atlassian. I spent a chunk of the day on HR paperwork and general setup stuff. (By the way, my new work email address is email@example.com. Don't be a stranger.)
Then I worked on getting JIRA building from source and deploying. Thanks to the atlassian-idea maven plugin, it was almost (but not quite) as easy as advertised. The "not quite" took me a while to work through, but I took good notes. And once I'm sure these are really problems, instead of just failures of understanding, I'll look at fixing them. Hopefully the next guy to come along won't have the same difficulties.
Overall, the first day was really fun. Interesting enough to keep me at the computer until 9 o'clock, anyway. It's nice to be diving into unknown territory again. Hopefully tomorrow will be even better.
