The job didn’t work out. My 90-day evaluation period ended unhappily. It seems that my two years of CFML experience was just too little. I was getting the work done, but it was taking me too long to do so. While they liked me personally, my pace didn’t work for their business model. They have a huge backlog of work, and they need developers who can kick ass in a hurry, and there was no time to bring me up to that speed.
It makes me feel pretty good though, the fact that I was working with ColdFusion legends, especially since I’m still so new to the language. In a short three months I learned FuseBox and FW/1.
Where my departure from the previous job left me bitter and angry, this departure left me sad and disappointed in myself. I’m trying not to beat myself up over it, but don’t need to.
The simple facts have brass knuckles.
