I don't know, which technique you worked on, but there are the so-called 'Next Generation Sequencing' methods. I think the oldest of that is a pyrosequencing technique called 454 sequencing (I think it is provided by Roche). However, this method is too expensive compared to even newer methods and the support will be stopped within the next months, as far as I know.
Furthermore, there are the Illumina and the ion torrent technique. Finally, there is SMRT sequencing of which some people say that this is even third generation sequencing. I think, this paper provides a nice overview. And if you're interested in further reading, yet you know what to search for.
