2011 is gone and with new year comes new resolutions. Some of last year’s resolutions got resolved, others fell to the wayside, and now I’ve come to write down a few more.
I never got back into grails – although I still feel like I want to. That one stays on the list!
Revisited some old text books, but I still have more to revisit. I forgot a lot about design patterns. Some of that is interview fodder, but still among the things I like to know.
The tracker app never went out, but an equally cool side project did – http://alianosbatavia.com – an implementation of a turn-key restaurant web app. Fairly successful so far, gave me a reason to write a production rails app, learn more about SEO, etc. Still not sure what my next idea is, but I want to get another app out this year…
Is Java still relevant? I go back and forth on this. I am thinking of either learning Play! or Scala/Akka. Not sure I care about either one. I think this is at the bottom of the list.
Lastly, I need to write the posts I talked about writing last year, including my favorite anonymous inner class mock madness.
Hopefully, I’ll be back soon.
