    I just hope I can be as much help to all of you as you have been to me so far.....
    to edugeek!

    There are many others from your part of the world on here.

    Perhaps you can make it to the edugeek May conference at Half term in Chorley and meet some of the others? (it's too far for me)

    Hello!

    Been reading here for a couple of months, only been in education since September. Picking things up fairly quickly, but still got a huge amount to learn (from you!).

    Hi everyone!

    I'm Matt, and I've already been spounting off a bit on the forums but here's the proper "hello" part! I've recently started as a data analyst in a secondary school in Nottinghamshire. I am new to education though - before this I've done doing business analysis, database app development and web development over the years, along with a side order of software and network support.

    The thing I'm finding hardest is learning the jargon! Education seems to have more acronyms and abbreviations than any other area I've worked in, and people join them all together like some kind of weird pig-latin.

    Hopefully I'll get to know lots of people here and also manage to stay sane in the process!

    Rake care.

    Indeed, it's quite a bugger, especially to be thrown in and try to learn it all! One of the things our ex-head did was create a "Dictionary of Teacherspeak" for staff and parents alike - so we all knew what CVA, TRLP, GLEA stand for.

    Apparently UPS is the name of a teachers pay grade - this one caused a bit of confusion when explaining the process of moving the server room to a teacher once!

    Hello everyone

    It's great to find such a forum which has such a large number of UK members!

    I've just ceased being a mature student (I usually have to explain that when I register on fora!) and have a long-standing interest in IT as a hobby because it's not my primary profession. I've got my A+, Network+ and CCNA exams and WIP include MS certs leading to MCSA. I have a keen interest in Network Administration, Security and Penetration Testing.

    I've followed many of the threads here and thought it about time that I dipped my toes in the water and registered so I can contribute to the community. I suspect that I'll be primarily an "asker" rather than a "responder" but, with time, that should change!
