I can’t really say they are good changes or bad changes. I guess things are never really black and white.
The part of the big project my team was working in will be over soon, for various reasons. That in itself is not good or bad, it had to end sometime I guess, it was just rather unexpected. One of the good things is that because my background in network security, I’ve been able to switch to another project (unlike my team mates so far). The project is for the same customer which is good because I know the place, the people, etc. Which leads to the next good thing, the Rheinbach days are over!
The bad thing is, the project is in München and still not somewhere closer. But I guess it could’ve been worse and I think things could change for the better soon. Good things come to those who wait, eh ? Or so they say.
At least there will be new challenges which is a good thing. I am involved now in firewall administration and deployment which is refreshing, it’s kinda what I was doing before I joined this company but this is on a whole different level. I am working with all the good things I learned while I was doing my Cisco CCSP certification: ASA firewalls, IDS/IPS Sensors, MARS (the monitoring and analysis tool from Cisco), etc. So, we’ll see how it goes.
