Happy new year everyone!!!
Admitted, I’m a bit late with my best wishes this year, but I spent some time recently looking for some crazy adventures in Asia. Now that I finally found some stable ground under my feet again and with it, the time to blog, I thought my first blog of this year, the sentimental fool that I am, was a good time to reflect on some highlights of an amazing 2012.
Community-wise, my year started off well when I met Beth Massi early 2012, got introduced to some people by Michael Washington somewhat later (which led to the Leading LightSwitch column in MSDN magazine, which was abruptly stopped because of health reasons but will be continued this year), got to do a few live sessions (but not enough) about my addiction, and made a coffee drinking date with my fellow-LightSwitch-hacker Paul Van Bladel. Although we never got around to actually meeting last year, we started partnering in crime this year starting with a succinct session on LightSwitch end of Februari.
Last year also had a couple of unpleasant surprises for me personally, but I learned and gained strength from the experience, and I’m ready to start a year with (hopefully) even bigger events than last year…
Besides blogging, I’m hoping to get a first version of my new extension ready soon. I’ve been working on it since 2011, when I get a couple of hours to spare (which isn’t a lot), continually changing strategy as I learn from my LightSwitch consultancy projects what the developer community truly needs, and to try and keep up with with the ever changing LightSwitch product… Hopefully, you’ll like it a lot. Hopefully, one day I’ll be able to do just that: blog, give sessions, create sample projects and create extensions. Now that would be a good year!
Meanwhile though, while I wait for that winning lottery ticket, there’s plenty of fun projects that need my attention right now…
Happy new year everyone! I hope you have a great 2013, meet lots of fun people, make tons of money, have a good health, and as always… Keep rocking LS!
