Just over six years ago I joined RL Solutions as a senior developer. A lot has changed since I joined the team in a small office in the Adelaide CBD.

We moved to a larger office (still in the CBD), and likewise the company has also become larger. Around two years ago RL Solutions merged with UK-based Datix to become ‘RLDatix’, and has been growing ever since.

I’ve loved working with my Adelaide team mates, and have also been privileged to be able meet with Toronto and Melbourne colleagues in person on a number of occasions. Remember when you could travel interstate or overseas? Seems like a distant dream!

Even accounting for all the other significant things that were going on in 2020, I’ve had a growing sense of work-related restlessness, and discerned that it might be time for me to head off in a new direction.

And so here I find myself in my last week of work at RLDatix.

It’s the people I will miss the most - especially the Adelaide and Infection product teams. I have been very proud to work on the Infection Surveillance product and hope it continues to grow and have a significant impact on how hospitals manage and track infections.

I’d like to pay a special tribute to my manager Tom: for his trust, listening ear and advice, encouragement and support, including his facilitating my attendance at the Microsoft MVP Summit, and for special times shared with him and his family.

So where am I going next? Stay tuned for my next post to find out🙂
