I haven’t been here around 5 months L It’s really sad! But it’s not only because I’m a lazy. There were a lot of changes in my life during this time. I completely went to Silverlight/WP7 development, change a job (ever twice!) and…change a country. Now I’m working, living and drinking a Belgium beer in Antwerp, Belgium. This was agenda and now let’s does it more extended about everything.
I really like Silverlight, enjoy what you can do with it and how. Everything can be done very fast and in OOP+TDD paradigms. In other hand I completely misunderstand Microsoft and their politics with this technology (I suppose I’ll write a separate post about this one). Maybe they think that everything should be possible on Windows 8? – Foolish idea. They gave us a Visual Studio plugin for Python, Ruby and PHP, now they negotiate the html 5. Of course it’s good to have lots of possibilites, however developers and especially business don’t understand where is a future, what is a main way! Ok, it’s a long story which I promise to tell soon.
My chose is a Silverlight and a WP7 development now, but I’m more and more like iOS+Mac development.
To the best of my belief life should be funny, interesting and full of positive emotion! If nothing happens in your life – believe me, you are doing something wrong. If you e-mail box/Skype/whatever is empty, there is only one reason: you’re not needed.
Then I was hired for Belgium ItemSolutions company. I’m happy here. I suppose that outsourcing is wrong way for company and particularly me. I’m truly belief on own products and Silverlight and everything I found here. And every more: good people and atmosphere, interesting projects, and company which is “knowledge-driven instead of business-driven.” Eventually I belief in a company and projects part of which I’m.
Of course, at the end I’d like to maintain few words about my new country:
Enjoy your life!
