Akka

I resolve, version 2.0

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.
