Shame on Me

I have really been terrible at keeping up on this blog. Never really quite recovered from Christmas to get back into the swing of things. Any excuse I muster is really nothing more than that, an excuse.

So what have I been up to? To hit the highlights, the wife and I went to Utah for Valentines day and stayed at a rental house on a ranch. It was an amazing time!

"Zion National Park"

"Harmony Ranch"

It truely was a much needed escape from the long hours the team and I have been putting into Fluencr for it’s Febuary 1st launch. Which is what I did most of January.

I have also started making the move to programming in the terminal with Vim instead of desktop related GUI ide tools. Not being a normal user of Vim it was rough going there for awhile but I am finally starting to get a good grasp of it. Hopefully in the next couple months I’ll be a fully fledged text shredding master with Vim!

Probably the last big item I have been working on is learning Erlang. Having dinked around with Elixir about eight months ago it had me very interested. With some of the concurrent requirements we are having at work it seems like a good idea to try leveraging some of the power Erlang and it’s ruby like cousin Elixir bring to the table.

It may be a bit dated, but here is the presentation I did on Elixir back then if you are interested.

I really hope to get back on my google analytics tool I started on… shame on me for just doing nothing with it lately.

Until next time!
