A New Challenge

Today was day number 1 at my new role working in the SCRUM team of developers with Fitness First at their head office in Poole. I'll be working on their .NET based membership management software and associated websites and tools.

A previously unknown fact to me, Fitness First are the UK's largest gym company with over 400 gyms across the world, with more than1.2 million members. Working in such a large scale environment will offer me the chance to really get stuck in with crucial issues of performance, response time and scalability.

It'll also be a chance to practice more of what I've previously enjoyed, working within a SCRUM team using agile practices to achieve our goals and delivering value to the business.

Here's to the challenge ahead, and hopefully, the end of my blogging hiatus!
