To 2017 and beyond en

It's that time again...

Last year, I added some «interludes» with music I like or something, you'll find the same in this new one.

Writing

I wrote some articles on this blog (10 !). I think the most viewed one was the one about TypeScript (I do not have any analytics / tracking stuff on this website so I do not have any proof though).

I did some real things again for sfeir:

And some small contributions in the articles of awesome coworkers:

I had a ticket for dotCSS and dotJS but I fucked up when planning my holidays... So I skipped the conf to stay in Japan. No report for these confs, sorry !

This will not stop in 2017 ^^.


Interlude: A Tribe Called Quest - We The People....

Speaking

That was a crazy year.

With my buddy Romain Maton, we spoke at:

Our talk was about JavaScript frameworks, communities, hype, and fanboyism. It's in french:

It was an amazing experience. The talk at the Jug Summer Camp should be available on youtube at some time. I am not sure yet I'll be ready to make another one this year, but who knows :) (edit: I submitted a conf talk to Devoxx France, we'll see...)


Interlude: Aesop Rock - Shrunk

Learning

I played a little more with:

  • react (result: I am not a big fan)
  • vuejs (result: it is awesome, it will be big in 2017)

I started using:

  • go (result: I love it !)

For 2017, I'll have to learn some Angular (understand version 2 and later...) and RxJS. Starting soon !


Interlude: Carly Rae Jepsen - Higher

Programming

I've been to some events like coding game «coders stike back»

(That dude with a My Little Pony t-shirt... That is me)

My real serious side project is:

Some small projects are waiting:

  • gitzytout, a tool to help configure multi git repos to push your stuff everywhere
  • jisho, a command line japanese dictionary
  • neupeumeu: a npm client written in go
  • twitter-cleaner: a small tool to help me clean my twitter things

And other things are still in my head. I talked last year about a secret project... I haven't started yet. Stay tuned ! It should be written in Go + VueJS.

Also, I have contributed to open source projects ! True story !

Making open source projects better, one typo at a time.

Interlude: NEVERMEN - Mr Mistake

Computers and stuff

I got a Raspberry Pi, I have not opened it yet. I will in 2017 !

I switch to Arch Linux in february 2016, and I love it !

I use i3 and I want to try bspwm.

I am a big fan of jetbrains products, even though I try to spend more time in neovim.

I switched from zsh to fish, you should really try it. Fast and powerful.

I forgot when I closed my account at LastPass, but I am using pass and it is freaking cool.

I have also started a dotfiles repository with some configs.

The only thing I am still missing is configuring mutt.

I also want to find a modern and lightweight browser...


Interlude: deadmau5 - No Problem

Movies

Here are some movies I liked:

And those that where below my expectations:

And some I hope to see:

That being said (written): Clerks 2 is still my favourite movie after 10 years, because:

  • it is fun, romantic, geeky
  • the characters are super cool
  • the soundtrack is awesome
  • it includes inter-species erotica

Interlude: Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals: SXSW 2016

Starting ? Pursuing ?

I have soooo much things to do...

  • Write even more !
  • Learn more (ClojureScript ? Erlang ?)
  • I don't have much time to read and I want to read more (or listening to audioboooks).
  • I am working on a Node.JS training session for my company, it'll be out in the next months :)
  • Learning Japanese !
  • Practicing karate: I may try to reach the black belt in Karate this year...

Interlude: BABYMETAL - KARATE

Just another interlude because I don't have extra content for you


Interlude: Run The Jewels - Legend Has It

Happy new year !

As I say every year:

Happy new year to everybody who will have a happy year. For the others, stay strong and let's hope 2018 will be here promptly.


Final: Wormrot - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Grind
