Firstly, I realise this post is a little bit late. New Year posts generally tend to come out on New Year’s Day, but as usual, I’m not one to stick to traditions like that…
This year is going to be a big one, I can feel it. I have a lot of plans for a lot of projects, and think I’m finally going to be able to enact my plan of organising things for the better a certain company. A big part of the New Year is making sure I keep on top of this blog, and to make sure I keep posting what I consider to be semi-interesting topics (I doubt you’ll agree).
These are a few of the things I’m looking forward to this year:
- LINGsCARS - As ever, I love working at LINGsCARS, and love all the different places it seems to take me to, but I’m hoping this year is going to be better than ever. We have a lot of plans for various projects, which I’m looking forward to being able to plan, implement and deliver. I’ve done a lot of learning in the years I’ve been in the company, and I’m hoping it’s all going to pay off very soon.
- DBlib - I’ve been planning a release of this lightweight MySQL-driven database library for quite a while now, but haven’t devoted as much time to it as I would have liked to. I’m hoping to add a few more features to make it usable to a wider audience, and get a proper version released very very soon.
- Monkey Boards – This is another MASSIVE project that I’ve put on the sidelines for one too many times… I’ll be devoting more time to Monkey Boards to make sure it’s all cleaned up and ready for a 1.0 release, while still keeping with it’s small stature and lightweight principles.
- And More… – I’ve also got an idea for a massive project, that might see me branching out on my own a bit more, but I’m not sure whether the time is right just yet… It certainly isn’t the time to reveal it!
So I wish you all the best to everything you put your mind to this year, and hope you’ve got a year as fully-planned and ambitious as mine! I’ll leave you with a small photo of a toy Ford Capri I got for Christmas, which cheered me up immensely and now has pride of place on my desk
