My 2017

12/24/2017

2017 is slowly reaching the end of its lifespan, so it’s time for end-of-year reviews. Here’s mine.

I still can’t believe that 2017 is nearly over. Personally, I feel it was a great year, even though I haven’t achieved as much as I’d have liked. Let’s start with what happened here on this blog. To be honest, except for the redesign of the site, I’m not really happy with what I made out of it. I wanted to write about a really cool project I’m currently working on, but that probably has to wait until 2018. Stay tuned though, it’s gonna be lit af. Spoiler: it has to do with smart home.

Also, I feel like I wasn’t really developing much. There was Playify and some other miscellaneous projects, but other than that… However, I still learned a lot of things and I got a long list of what I want to do in the upcoming year. First of all, I want to move away from PHP and my code style, which was rather janky to a Node.js world. That also includes ditching my beloved frameworks like jQuery in favor of say Vue.js. This is quite a radical move for me, but I feel comfortable in my learning skills and I gratefully accept the new DOM future.

Besides, I think I haven’t been very active in photography and music as I used to be, and I really want to step it up again.

But there are also some good things! Very recently, I’ve started to stream more and more on Twitch, and I love it so far. I also have plans about starting a small podcast, but that probably is a long time away from now. It’s still something I really wanna try out at some point.

So the to-do list for 2018 is already quite filled, and I’m very eager what it’ll bring.
