Hi to all my readers!
I recently decided to take more time out of my work to play with technologies and have fun with programming 🙂
This blog will follow my adventures.
I don’t really have any precise idea, or field, of what I’ll play with. My background is mostly with backend services and networking, I will probably fiddle with things that are completely different. Some should revolve around Linux/Ruby/NodeJS, maybe I will get into bigger projects that are web-based, android apps, frameworks, etc. Not completely certain yet. TBD 🙂
Right now, my plan is to write once every two weeks. I’ve been doing this for a little while and seem to be able to keep it going!
Any feedback is welcome!

|I'm currently reading Automate the Boring Stuff with Python: Practical Programming for Total Beginners. I got this book in a HumbleBundle deal a while back. As the name suggest, it looks really basic, but contains information about a lot of libraries.|
