Weekly review: Week ending February 3, 2012

Two weeks to go before I leave IBM. My current project is in user acceptance testing, and I’ve addressed practically all the feedback that the client sent. The project manager is impressed at how quickly things get done. There’s nothing like a clear end date to sharpen one’s focus! I want to get as much in before I go.

We’re squeezing another project into my last ten business days. I’m going to help a developer learn Drupal and take over this project for a non-profit based in Toronto. It’s good work, and it would be great for her to pick up Drupal.

Braindumping about how to rock at IBM will probably have to wait until after I leave. Folks can take care of resharing the resources internally. I’ve got quite a few tips to share. =) It would be great to see the ongoing conversations, but oh well!

This week, W- and I volunteered for the students’ field trip to the Ontario Science Centre. That was quite informative. We also spent a lot of time helping J- with her homework, as she has a couple of assignments due this week.

Busy week, but a good one. Next week will be good too!
