Money

October 4th, 2011

Waiting for everyone to arrive for this meeting, watching some of the recommended video on Youtube.  I’m a fan of the book Rework so i see eye to eye on a lot of Jason Fried’s mindset. Here a clip on the “Exchang of Money” from a Y Combinator event.  The Exchange of Money

Nice Django

October 4th, 2011

prototyping some ideas on my home Linux server using the #Django framework. Its a nice easy framework to work with and the Python language flows naturally . It would greatly benefit from a simple installer similar to the Rails Installer Engine yard distributes. Engaging windows developers is not that hard if you give them an easy way to implemented the platform tools

Merry New years

January 1st, 2011

Merry New Years All, it’s officially 2011 another chances to fix old mistakes and evolve to a better you. I didn’t get to spend it with my Bella but I had a great time with my lil pop pop.   Normally around this time  ( and my birthday ) I do some self –review , look at what I got done from my NYE resolutions and what do I want the new ones to be. Let’s have a look;

 

2010

2011

  1. 1.       Build an Enterprise Application
  2. 2.       Learn to use Ruby on Rails
  3. 3.       Hire 5 people
  4. Buy a House
  5. Purpose  to Bella in a memorable way
  6. 6.       Drop 70lbs 
  7. 7.       Make my comments more concise
  8. 8.       Build 10 Smartphone apps

 

  1. Build 30 mobile apps
  2. Release 2 desktop Apps
  3. Release 1 Enterprise App
  4. Increase revenue + 30%
  5. 2 town houses
  6. Write cleaner code
  7. 2 vacations with Bella
  8. Convert in-house development platform to Mac
  9. Get back to 23 minute 3-mile run
  10. Cut  down on the Soda I drink

 

As you can see I had some success in 2010 with my goals.  I fell short on 3, 6 & 8 only losing 40lbs and building 4 mobile apps and adding 2 people to my staff. My failure with 4&5 go hand in hand love is an unpredictable thing at times.  I went with 10 goals for 2011, so to quote a good friend “Let’s Make It!”
