So it is February already, wow what happened to Janaury!
Thought I should write something to clear my head. This week I head to Paris with the IJF to work at the Paris Grand Slam judo event. Should be good. I am taking my Raspberry Pi with me and then I'll be sending it with colleagues until I meet up with it again in Samsun Turkey in March. I hope I have it setup correctly!
On the $dayjob side of things, this month marks a small change in my role in the office. Whilst remaining the scrummaster for my old team I become a dev team member of a new (related) team. The change is minor but interesting.
It's one of those interesting changes in situation that comes along and if you roll with it you learn a lot along the way. I am fortunate that as the existing scrum master for both teams, this is not a case of meeting new people. Sure I have to learn a new codebase and coding style and standard; but I know the team members and all that good stuff.
Back on the Judo side, but locally. My club(s) are going strong; the Southampton club just regained the third place position in the Hampshire Team Championships and we are preparing for the Hampshire Individual Championships.
I am the competitions organiser so it was great to see a good turn out for the team championships and to be seeing entries for the individual championships coem in steadily already.
Anyway… the only real issue is the old work/life balance.
I'm doing my usual trick of burning the candle at both ends and in the middle. 🙂 Stay tuned for updates on things.
P.s. hello, if you are reading this please let me know either in a comment or via email. I am always curious if this cathartic exercise of blogging is purely for me, or if there are people out there reading these words.
