I'm an introvert so I don't like to get to know other people. Moreover, my job rarely has to communicate with new people. That's why I don't have the opportunity to meet them.

I often meet new people at my job. When I need to evaluate a platform, I work with the provider (local and external) for 2 or 3 months. We organize proofs of concept for all platforms. I really know a lot of people on these projects. These projects are usually every 6 months.
