Living and Working in Dublin

Im finally settled in Dublin, Ireland. This has been a really great aventure because I came to Ireland without home nor job. I arrived to a dirt chep hostel in which I met a lot of interesting people from a lot of countries, all of them trying to start a new life. Unfortunately, some of them are in a very difficult situation because of the money, the family and the politics in their countries, in special people from east Europe. To share my first weeks with these people has been an important experience for me.
To let a flat or a room in Dublin is really difficult if you don't have a job, and to get a job is sometimes difficult if you don't have an irish address, so lets say that things were not very easy.
Fortunately I have a nice room in a nice place and I have an exciting and amazing job, which I started yesterday.
The company in which I am working now is called Buy4Now (buy4now.com), which is an important company in Ireland and I am working in a new huge project as a developer, working with .Net 2.0 and 3.0. There are a lot of new things for me like MS Sql Server 2005 and the T-SQL and also the ASP.NET web forms, because I was working with MonoRail in the past two years.
People at the company are very nice and I am so happy of being part of this project and team.
No I have less time to work in free/open software but I still read the mailing list and playing with Mono, Castle, Linux and all the open stuff.
I have been attending to some english classes but my english still be horrible as you can see. It will be better someday ;-).
This is my first time outside Spain, everything is exciting.
