This week I joined the School of Computer Science & Informatics at Cardiff University/Prifysgol Caerdydd. The past week has been a gentle introduction to the School, having completed induction training, I’m looking forward to taking part in the probationary training courses over the coming weeks. I’ve picked up my staff access card, shifted over my website from Bath, which was painless thanks to pelican and my own custom batch and python scripts, and set up my HR account here at the university. I’ve also spent the past few days browsing the university’s intranet soaking up all the information I can.
I’m slowly getting to know the city, and am looking forward to meeting all my new colleagues at the University. Setting my goals for the summer, I’m excited about everything I’m going to learn and teach in my new post and meeting the new 2019/20 cohort of students at Cardiff.
