I'm Siegfried. A developer. Yep.

To 2018 and beyond fr jp

It’s that time again…

This year was not an easy one for me, switching between too many contexts for too long. This explains why I almost stopped coding outside of work I think. I am reassured when I read this like this post from Julia Evans «Learning at work», especially this:

Don’t learn programming languages/frameworks outside of work

On this blog I am often too negative… I really want to be more positive !

Writing

I wrote a few things on this blog, and I want to write more (as always).

Once again, I contributed to the blog of SFEIR:

I also joined the french gopher initiative to create french content about the Go programming language:

Speaking

I gave some talks internally:

I was really glad to be invited by MiXiT to share my personal view on the (in)famous JavaScript fatigue. That was a pretty cool experience and an amazing conference.

I will be speaking at SnowCamp in a few weeks !

Teaching

That is a new thing in this yearly posts ! At SFEIR we have some trainings called SFEIR School; they are free and open to everyone, we give 2 of them every month !

Node.js

I worked on a Node.js training and gave it twice, another colleague gave it once. It was a good experience.

Go

I was the trainer (Sébastien) ’s assistant for a one-day training about the Go Programming Language. Super cool !

Japanese

We create a SFEIR School with my wife: an introduction to the Japanese language !

Magic

I spent too much time on youtube watching magic videos… So I started learning it, and we organized with my colleague Rudy a SFEIR School about magic !

The following video is exactly what we can not do at this time.

Programming

That was a lazy year. I learn to disconnect when I am at home, I will tell you more about that soon.

beulogue has been discontinued. That was fun. Here is the final source code:

 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9101112131415
'use strict';

const path = require('path');

const pkg = require(path.resolve(__dirname, './package.json'));

console.log(`
  beulogue v${pkg.version} #EOL
  =====================
  
  Beulogue was a nice experiment, and it's the end. Peace.

This blog is currently built using Hugo, which is awesome !

I updated jisho-go. It works on my computer :p

Computers and stuff

I switched my work computer for a Dell XPS 13 (using Arch Linux), and it is pretty cool.

I finally managed to use mutt with Fastmail. This year I will configure it with my Gmail accounts :)

I switched to Firefox, I hope I will be able to switch to qutebrowser for real this year.

I still want to learn ClojureScript.

Here is a list of things I will not spend my personal time on:

Various

Last year I wrote that I wanted to get my black belt in karate. I got it !

I read some books, and I still want to read more.

Cool stuff I watched:

Things I want to watch:

And the album of the year:

Open Mike Eagle - Brick Body Kids Still Daydream (Cover)

Listen on bandcamp.

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 2019 will be here promptly.
