Being a developer in thoughtworks doesn't mean all I do is write code. At times, it helps to be a jack of some trades - there are lots of oppurtunities to pick a task outside coding - set up a git repository, a CI server, interface for a TV, play table tennis or (my fav) beat someone at Age of Empires!!!
I like being a developer, love trying to be good at it.
The Away day - awesome fun, met lots of people - each one unique! Amazed by the amount of talent. Everyone I meet has got a passion outside ThoughtWorks - musicians, artists, math geeks - you name it.
