I’m switching jobs again. Although Spider Graphics was a nice place to work, and getting more so over time as I got to work more and more in Perl and PHP, I still missed the University environment as a whole (though not bioinformatics as a specific) and the opportunities and benefits that Cornell provided.
My new job will be as a PHP hacker at the Cornell Cooperative Extension. Not only do the people I interviewed with seem extremely nice (for instance, not only did they not blink at me wanting to give a full month’s notice at Spider, the new boss also insisted I take a bit of time off as a break between jobs), they also said there’s no problem with me using Linux on my workstation (you’d be surprised how important that seems to me now, after working in a Windows environment for the past 6 months).
I’m really looking forward to it!
