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, maybe I will get into bigger projects that are web-based, android apps, frameworks, etc. One thing is for sure, I want to contribute to other people’s open source projects.
That should be it for my current goals on this blog, I should try to write a few times a week, but it’ll depend on my load at work. One thing is for sure: I plan on writing a monthly overview of what I worked on in that month, to make me accountable and to force me to make progress.
Any feedback is welcome!
