First it was industrial machines with a ton of extremely specialized hardware (X-ray generators, X-ray detectors, custom made boards and so on), in the international market subjected both to radioprotection laws and food&beverage treatment laws (when not pharmaceutical).

Now it is ECU diagnostic tools for a large car manifacturer, with a ton of extremely specialized hardware whose each unit costs about as much as one of the machines I developed and manifactured in the previous job. All this in an international market with all the laws for safety and vehicles safety.

I managed to get rid of VB6, I acquired a sh*tty Open Source GUI Toolit developed single handedly by a dutch who, I have reasons to believe, enjoyed the freedom in recreational drugs use of the Netherlands a bit too much.

Pros: the pay is much better.
Cons: the work environment managed to burn me out in 2 months, instead of the 5 years and a half that the old workplace took to get me at the same burn-out point.
