La positive attitude
In my "To 2018 and beyond" post I said that I wanted to be more positive. I also wrote about the things I do not want to spend my personal time on.
- Chatbots and assistants: these are not interfaces I want to use, and I think they are «just» API calls, not really interesting for me.
- Mobile: I have never been found of mobile development (but I like web development), and I still do not want to develop using native mobile languages, and I do not really like using a «mobile framework» like Ionic or things like that.
What about the things I want to lose track of time ? Here they are, in alphabetical order.
I have been excessively critical about some things about Angular. I would like to have a real project using it to see what it is like in the real world. Last year I only used it on a training project and it was not enough for me to embrace it.
Where I am with Angular today: it has the same concepts than AngularJS, but everything is just more complicated.
I talked about this one, I have already played a little with LISP (so I do not fear the parenthesis!) and I like the thing so far.

I tried some things last year. I was «whaaaat»-ing when, after doing
s3 = s1 + &s2; you can not refer to
s1 anymore. well. The step to join the rust bandwagon is not an easy one, but I think I should go deeper to learn Rust's concepts.
symbol etc 😄
This is not a «TypeScript» category because the tool does not matter.
By the way, I think Flow is a better match for me.
I hope that I will be able to find enough time to do this things.
More importantly, I hope that I will be able to find the right tool to solve a problem.
Let's end this with a quote from a recent blog post from Jett Atwood: «To Serve Man, with Software»,
