Saved for now! Music Is The Cure.

After a few months on a 'radical sabbatical', I am a 'paid' business intelligence developer again. I'm making a new start working for a multi-channel marketing company connecting pharma, managed care, and medical device companies to health care professionals. Interesting problem space and I will learn all I can and apply my experience to help them. So happy for the opportunity and a chance to pivot. Now that employment is not a worry for a while, I will spend the rest of my waking hours building up musicisthecure.org. It will be a Python/Django/Elastic Search/Amazon Webservices stack and we'll find a few use cases for the Hadoop ecosystem.

I've found myself getting involved in a number of engaging activities. I've also found myself working with career coaches to really hone in on what my core value is. I am finding it's an accelerated world out there. For myself, I see a clear roadmap of where I want to be.

They generally are integrated with social media like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube. They generally have Google Analytics to monitor site visit patterns. With this starting point,  we've worked hard with our customers to understand what they want to accomplish with a web presence.
