2011 in review, happy 2012 to all!

What a year! I’ve returned to programming, learned so much and found a new job! I entered the world of e-learning platforms both as student and as coder, I’ve meet Drupal and deepened my knowledge of Code Igniter,  I extended my object oriented construction and patterns skills, practiced some SQL, even tried taking courses in machine learning and AI!

I’ve figured out a lot about what to do and what not to do, about managing my energies and nerves, preserving my enthusiasm through it all – after all, this is a marathon, not a sprint!

Now a new year starts, and I’m a Junior Developer. Let’s hope it all goes well. I’ll keep you posted. Yes, I haven’t blogged lately, but that’s about to change.

Happy 2012 to you all!

BTW, the WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for my blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,200 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

About apprenticecoder

My blog is about me learning to program, and trying to narrate it in interesting ways. I love to learn and to learn through creativity. For example I like computers, but even more I like to see what computers can do for people. That's why I find web programming and scripting especially exciting. I was born in Split, Croatia, went to college in Bologna, Italy and now live in Milan. I like reading, especially non-fiction (lately). I'd like to read more poetry. I find architecture inspiring. Museums as well. Some more then others. Interfaces. Lifestyle magazines with interesting points of view. Semantic web. Strolls in nature. The sea.
