I'm going to be a superhero at Fluido. (some context)

Still going to be a developer but with a very different company. It's going to be a change but hopefully mostly really good!

Good for you! Weird to give 3 months notice. Surprised tat the new company is willing to wait that long.

Thanks!

Basically everybody has to give three months notice here so companies are used to having to wait three months for people. Some places will let you leave earlier but usually they want to have you keep working. I am trying to leave earlier here but the boss does not seem very willing. This is an argument in favor of making yourself seem less useful than you are. ("I'm not really doing anything anyway, might as well stop paying me and let me go.")

Cool and congrats! Do you get a superhero name?

About ten years ago I showed a slide in a lab meeting where a piece of Sphagnum looked like the Superman symbol and so ever since then everyone in our lab also gets a superhero name. I'm Sphagnum P.I. or Dr. Peat Monster ;-)

I hope so! My impressions of the new place are that they have a lot of fun (and consider "work should be fun" to be really important) so I think the chances are good.

BTW, good choice to stick with Hammer for sports. It's way more intimidating than Sphagnum P.I.

"work should be fun"

Yes it should be. Congrats again!

I misspoke -- it's "work must be fun!" Even better!
