Welcome to 2018


2017 was a very quiet year for me as far as blogging has been concerned and that is something I intend to remedy in 2018. I thought I would go ahead and kick things off since there is no time like the present.

While things have been quiet I was actually quite busy in 2017. The first part of the year was spent picking up Angular(JS/2/4/5). That kept me occupied for the early part of 2017. Next I wanted to look in to ReactJS because I have heard so many good things about the framework. Turns out it is not the easiest framework to pickup so I decided to put it down for a bit.

After working with frontend frameworks for the first half of the year I thought it would be great to move javascript to the backend and decided to pick up NodeJS and ExpressJS. I will not really expand on this too much but overall I have really enjoyed my time tinkering around (have you checked out node-billz, my NodeJS-based bill calendar)? Be on the lookout for more posts coming soon.

As far as non-tech things, I did not read quite as many books in 2017 as I had intended. I got started on the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan and I made it to book seven, I hope to finish the series this year. Also Raymond E. Feist, arguably my favorite author of all time, has a new series coming out in March.

2018 is going to be a great year!
