I’m always full of ideas and a passion for excellence. My wife convinced me to write down my journey so as to share it with everyone else.
At first I paused… I’m really not very good and repetitive things, things that keep me to a schedule, etc… After several months, I usually lose interest, find something else shiny, or just plain get bored.
That said, as I get older I’m finding it easier to just keep things cool and calm and consistent. Finding my rhythm in life I guess.
Quick background. I’ve been working in the computer industry for almost 35 years (hurts to write that). I’ve developed a multitude of products, ranging from imaging software for small businesses, to multi-billion dollar software for some of the industry giants.
You’d think after all of that, I wouldn’t want to continue programming… Quite the contrary. I find programming to be exciting and challenging. I’m always looking for ways to push my knowledge, explore a new algorithm, or just make something fun.
That’s where this comes in. I’ve been taking a break for the last year playing other games instead of programming. I want to use this opportunity to get back into the thick of things and get the creative juices flowing again.
Almost everywhere in the industry, people are talking cross-platform. So, I thought I would give it a go outside of work and see where things led me.
Welcome to my journey…
