. So a bit of a gap between all this. Well back in the ‘Smoke’ London was nice and working in the East End, of Brick Lane so again interesting areas. Just a short contract with a digital media oriented company to take the baton from one programmer and hand it to the next and at least keep pace in the intervening period.
Not a real problem and because another contractor flounced out i ended up doing two sites one in French/English the other in Chinese/English.
Good place to work even if they played on the Wii a lot, rode around the office on their bikes and some brought their dogs in.
From there should have gone to Endemol but had what i thught was a better offer and anyway Shepherds Bush is crap.
So went to an agency again in Bermondsey. Ok people apart from the fanatical “Symfony is the only way to go programmer” who was in reality ok and put himself out to help but using a major framework to do a 10 page web site is not on, really, not on.
So after that headed East to the wilds of Battersea to work on really cool financial systems with a really laid back bunch of guys.
