Well, now it’s official. Yesterday I handed in my resignation from the university (I’ve been on a leave of absence for almost two years) and signed my contract with the North Karelia Rescue Department for the next year.
The coming year will hopefully bring new responsibilities in addition to the development of our web and intranet applications. Playing around with mobility and VIRVE (in Finnish, with blinking text) radios. VIRVE is the first official network built upon TETRA technology.
But other changes may be in the air as well. I have filled and sent a job application elsewhere, but there are many ifs in the way of it coming through. Web development would still be the name of the game with a strong tie with the rescue profession. But we’ll see what happens.
