First week in London is done and dusted. And I am still alive. Well, no, just kiddin. It was actually a really good start. But as I had to learn and adapt to new things, I am a bit stressed out as well and try to relax this weekend.
I kinda expected that my MacBook Pro would not be ready on my start date, they told me that it might take a couple more weeks until I get it. But my tears dried quickly, cause they gave me my monitor. It’s always nice to have a 24” flat panel screen to work with :-). Apart from such administrative stuff (I received my final badge Friday), I spent most of the time getting familiar with the project that I will be working on with Drew over the next couple of months and getting up to speed with the YUI library.
I haven’t done anything with YUI before. So getting to know what the library has to offer and learning the singleton/module pattern syntax introduced by Douglas Crockford caused me some headaches this week. It’s really great stuff, but I need to get used to it and learn how it works.
