welcome home

A quick welcome home, just got back from a weekend retreat to the great city of Las Vegas with a group of friends. That was one crazy weekend I don't think any of us will ever forget.

Back to reality, working hard trying to finish up some code changes and adapting myself to the new architecture of the project I'm working on. This product was pretty much a complete rewrite, using a custom window architecture based upon extjs, ajax calls to the orchestration layer, and soap/rest calls to the backend systems. Taking a bit of an adjustment to get caught up to speed as I had to jump into the deep end without any documentation on what they've done so far, and little to no documentation on what I needed to accomplish. Oh dear.

I got quite a bit done yesterday and today, making some good progress on getting the hang of how they want to do things. Should hopefully have these changes wrapped up after my girl goes to bed tonight, or possibly tomorrow if necessary.
