Last Wednesday I moved from DC and San Francisco. The transition was fairly smooth; the only issue so far is that my furniture and car are still in transit and I'm sleeping on the floor. Hopefully I'll be fully installed by the beginning of next week.
The people here are very friendly, and the weather is ideal for an English person. This weekend I wandered down to the Marina park opposite the Golden Gate bridge and just soaked up the sun for a glorious hour. I've posted a few photos from my walk but they don't come close to conveying the beauty of the bay area.
I plan on participating in many of the local hi-tech events, including the up-coming Ruby meeting in April. Since I'm getting close to the hosting and tuning phase of my education system, I will have plenty of experiences to share with others in the Rails community.
