On resolutions…

2013 came and went, and I definitely did not get around to learning much of what I planned to learn/write about.  I still have the books, and they’re electronic, so they’re not collecting dust, but instead of continuing to dig into new languages and frameworks for the JVM, I spent much of 2013 learning new technology based on client demand.  Not bad things, just unexpected.  I sharpened my javascript skills, and spent a few months in the .NET world. (pro tip – INSTALL ReSharper ON THE FIRST DAY)

This year I’d like to get through that Play/Scala exploration and check out the Reactor (the asynchronous app toolkit by the Spring team).

When will I stop thinking that putting it in writing will be motivation enough to actually do this stuff?
