Changing job, home, country, everything...

I'm a bit unactive right now. Until now my excuse was my recently taken vacations in Belgium and Holland. But now I have an excuse even better!!

I have a new job. From the August 21 I will be working in Dublin, Ireland for a top vendor financial company. The job is with J2EE and seems really exciting. I'm really looking forward to start this new career. Since five years ago I didn't have that feeling when you are desiring to go to your job, meet new colleagues, learn new technologies, business models, etc. In summary, I think that for me this is like a rebirth.

BTW, it would be great to meet any reader from this blog, or any other people interested in Java, J2EE, Eclipse, jLibrary :-), web services, etc. I will have to start looking for Java and Eclipse communities near the surrounding area. Now that I'm going to live in a big city I want to take this opportunity to learn as much as possible.

In the next weeks I will be looking for a home and settling in my new job, so this blog would be probably a bit innactive.

Amsterdam's Maradona

I saw this guy on my vacations in Amsterdam some days ago. It was simply awesome. I was on the other side of the street and when I looked to a little square I saw a guy doing amazing things with a soccer ball. When I came back and I browsed into youtube, I found that someone had already recorded these marvelous tricks on video.

For your enjoy: Amsterdam's Maradona.

Believe me, I saw him with my own eyes, it's absolutely real, even the final part, amazing.
