So here's how my first real day of work went:
Arrive at 8am; meet up with Michelle who's managing stuff for me while this other lady Lisa is in DC for a few weeks. She walks me over to my building where I meet my boss Marc and his little group of dudes. I then meet his boss who is my supervisor and the guy who hired me. I find out that I was seen as a good fit for Marc and his projects which include 3D map generation (integratable with GIS whoop whoop Shawn) LiDAR
usage image processing and more so that's why I got snatched up from the get go. Apparently a lot of people that get hired at Harris have to wait weeks or months before they actually get assigned to a project; I'm on two :-)
So I start the day reading articles white papers
(what a silly name for something) and other research relating to my work (like this
). Then after lunch I went to a meeting where 3 other guys and I were discussing issues with an implementation of the algorithm you'll see if you read that first pdf.
If any of you cats know how fantastic it feels to participate in and contribute to an hour and a half long intelligent discussion about something that interests you then you know exactly how satisfied I am with my career choice.
SHAZAUM. I feel so good I think I'm gunna go run a mile.
