Goals of 2011

Haha, just read my old post regarding the goals I had set in 2010. Did any of them come true? – No.

This is how it went:

#1 MonoTouch app
I did start an iPhone application with MonoTouch, but the API for the application is was developing on never got completed so it just died. Would’ve been a great app that’s for sure

#2 Payson drupal module.
Also got started, even got quite far actually, but my leaving of the drupal site I was part of (linuxportalen.se) resulted in a non-complete code. Besides, I have a shallow memory that there were some problems with drupal when it came to directly hook into POST parameters, which were needed by the Payson API. When i think about it I should’ve just made a hacky php that connected to the database with the proper result, but if I’m not mistaken mind was set to do it “the proper” way, which resulted in a no go.

#3 Community site based on Django
Ah, i really loved python back in early 2010, and I still do, but when I did some research I found tornado server of better use, as I started to more and more like to writer proper API’s, instead of views with hooks of code.

I stopped with the Django project after some time, got back to PHP, created a small framework and started developing the new community site, which also kind of died along with my interest in the Swedish Linux community (yeah, it was meant to replace linuxportalen) whom were too much interested of internal conflicts plus distro war.

But, through the year I looked up some different Web frameworks for PHP, and I found DooPHP, a wonderful and fast framework which is easy to learn and use. There’s a small project going on there, without a release date though, just something I do when I’m bored.

So to sum it up, none of my plans happened with the spare time I had part from my ordinary job, but it’s ok, none of them were too important, even though it looked like it when I think back about it.

 

Goals of 2011
Ha ha, right, I won’t set up any goals this year. I spend far too little time in front of the computer when I’m not working and the truth is, there are other things in life far more important to cherish and enjoy besides techie stuff. But hey, do I find something not too big and fun, I’ll probably do it :-).

Take care,
Marcus
