Hi,

Im Jackie, married with 2 kids :)

My hubby and I have finally made the decision to apply.

We've been thinking long and hard and decided its the right thing for us to do.

We have 2 kids, David is 3 and Megan is 18 months.

We're just starting to gather our information etc.

I work in Software development and my husband works in the medical instrumentation field as a product specialist / trainer / general dogsbody. :whome:

He is from a medical technology backround, but I think he'd like to stay within the field he is in now.

I've seen that Java Developers are on the critical skills list - so good news I think.

Im sure I'll be bombarding everyone with a million questions soon.

Oh and we will ideally like to end up in Perth since we have family and friends there.

Congrats on making the decision - that is the first hurdle overcome !!!! You will never regret this decision.

Keep an open mind throughout the process and a sense of humour. There will be ups and downs.

Also - keep an open mind about the place you want to be.......decide what you are looking for in the city you want to settle and then see which Aus city fits it best. We also decided Perth becuase of family and some friends, but settled in Brisbane and it was undoubetly the right decision for us. Each family is different though and what is good for us may not be good for you. So, think clearly in the next year or so about what you are looking for......

WELCOME !
