Moving on from 2017

This post is very late, like a few weeks late. In 2017 I set out with some lofty goals. Now, it's the end of the year, so how did I do?

2017 a year in running

So can a fat kid turn himself into a runner? Possible, but it's definitely not easy. Look, let me first tell you that I don't like running. I definitely don't like labelling myself a runner.

Keyboard shortcuts, payloads, and some Arduino learning

I've been a software guy all my life. I love building software systems. Things that store data in large databases, you login, and the system does something. I've never really understood hardware. So when the Arduino and the Raspberry PI came out I ignored them for the most part. Lately though I've been seeing things through a different lens.

Some thoughts on books

Here is a stream of conciousness / opinions / reviews on the books that I've read in 2017.

2017 Notes to Myself

Nice to meet you 2017! Glad to see that you've made it here safely. I'm trying to be more honest and open so let me tell you about a few things that I wanted to put on the burner this year and why.
