I'm about to start a consulting position that will last between 1 to 2 years. The position will be that of a programmer analyst, and I will be solely responsible for the design and programming for an application. Programming will be mostly .Net and SQL.
I'm sure many of you Experts here have done some consulting in the past. My question is, what do you normally do on the first day on the job when you are consulting? I know I should take time to meet the people there that I will be working with but should I expect they would want to immediately get started with development the first day?
