Quick Start!

Well, this past week I have been in training at Avanade. They call this Quick Start and it is a basic rundown of all the things that you need to know in order for you to get up and running after you get hired. The basic format of the training is that they bring in about 35 people from all over the world to do their training at their office in Seattle. So, I got lucky in the fact that I didn’t have to travel to training. But, being able to meet all of these people from such different walks of life was simply amazing. Aside from the training, getting to interact with all of these people was really cool.

Also, as an added fun thing to do, Avanade treated all of us to Cooking School at Blue Ribbon Cooking School Tuesday night. So, we go out to the school, make our food, learn some new tricks, and eat good food. Sounds cool, huh? That was probably one of the cooler things that we did during training. The school was cool and the food was awesome. I have the recipies to cook them, but I bet I’ll be too lazy to make them. You can see pictures from last night on my Flickr account.

Yea, the training was cool. I meet some cool people and had a really good time. I don’t know how other companies do their training, but I can’t say that I was dissapointed with the training that I had this past week. But, now it is onto projects, getting my MCP and working towards my PMP. Mmm…
