After a long hiatus I have decided to post something on my blog again. Rejoice my loyal underlings readers!! The last time I posted something on my blog was an year and a half ago. A few things have changed around here since then. I got job. Just a week after my last blog post to be exact. (Maybe there’s some correlation there. Hmmm…) See all the Linux stuff in the previous posts? I gave it up after I got myself a decent computer capable of gaming. My computer is running Windows 7 now. (TRAITOR!!!) I changed my phone quite a few times. Since my last post I’ve gone from being a Symbian fan to being an iOS fan and then finally ended up with Windows Phone 7. So yeah, this blog is going to sing a different tune from now on. Don’t worry, I won’t be singing praises to Microsoft all the time. Moving on to the matter at hand, it’s been recently brought to my attention that I’m being too lazy to be called a human being. Which is complete and utter bullshit I tell you. Although my browser history would suggest my mission in life is to read all the posts ever posted on 9gag. Anyway after working a year and a half on small to relatively large software projects as a .NET developer, I like to think I’m a somewhat experienced programmer now. I’m no Chuck Norr Jon Skeet obviously, but I can do stuff. Sort of. The point is while I’ve been going on about FOSS and contributing to the Open Source community etc etc. in my university days I haven’t done a single damn thing after I started working. I’ve been too lazy to start on any project that was not related to my work. After I get home from office I just switch into idle mode where I aimlessly stare at my laptop for most of the time. I have decided that this needs to change. Therefore I’m setting myself a few goals to complete in the next year.* Write more blog posts. Regularly. Learn proper web development. Not just the back end stuff I currently do sometimes. I want to learn how to do front-end stuff too. (Hear that sound? That’s the sound of all my web developer friends screaming in horror. My front-end developing skills are that legendary.) Create and launch at least one web site that will be beneficial to the community. Create and publish at least one mobile application. Most probably WP7 and/or Android. Exercise. I think that’s enough goals. Although it seems like an year is too long time to achieve these things, I don’t want to be too optimistic right now. *And if by any chance I fail to achieve these goals this blog post will be deleted without any sign of shame on my part.
