Today was my last day working at SDM. It has been great working at SDM and there are a lot of great people that I will be leaving behind. From Monday 1st October, I will be working at Microsoft as a SharePoint Technology Solutions Professional (TSP), supporting the Southern Region of Australia.
The guys at SDM decided to get me a going away present, so they produced t-shirts for most of the office and gave me one too. They had the the following design on them;

Very funny guys, I am going to miss all the humorous joking’s…
Last week I attended the annual SDM Away Days. This is basically two days where the company gets together, away from the office environment to discuss the strategies and direction for the next 12 months. This year there was a lot of show cases of work that has been achieved over the course of the year. Some of the more memorable show cases where the MOSS upgrade project of the SDM Intranet and Internet website from SPS/WSS and MCMS respectively. The other presentation that I found really interesting was the Virtual Earth / WPF proof of concept project (that rocked). The away days this year were at the Adelaide Oval in the Bradman Room, I had never been to the Adelaide Oval and was supprised to see how small it actually is (I am use to the MCG which is considerablly larger). This is a photo of me at the Oval, taken by Andrew Buttigieg.
Another memorable event from the two days away was the Away Days party on Thursday night. Lots of drinking and fun to be had, and lots of sore heads the next morning. Not to mention some individuals with messes to clean up.
