Good day all! Well, after 8 months of studying programming, in order to change careers, it has paid in the form of a new job as a front end engineer/UI afficianado at Amplifier Strategies. I start next month. I’ve been vacant from tumblr much of the year as a result of my studies, so perhaps maybe I’ll have free time now to think about other things. Also, I’ve had all my stuff in storage since moving back from Singapore, so that’s on its way over here to San Francisco. I’ve had naught but my laptop since then, so no iMac, no recording gear, no cello, no violin, no guitars, no ps3, no tv :-(
Anyway, yes. So, that’s all good news! It is a testament to the power of will, and I’m quite proud of it all. What I was afraid of being my lost year was ultimately my cocoon nearly-year, and my gamble has paid off. Hopefully it shall pay off exponentially with time.
In other news:
I’m going down to Cow Palace on sunday for a rowdy good time at a Charles Dickens Christmas Fair. Maybe I’ll remember to bring my camera and get back into tumblring after all this time.
Hello all, I’m building a new Django application that uses a bunch of government data to make graphs and datapoints so people can wield them with ease. It would probably have a login, and with that you can save different charts that you want to use later. Only thing is: I’m not sure how expansive I want it to be, and I think this time around I should spend a little more time than I did on my previous application in making it pretty. If anyone reading this has preferred features or is interested in a particular type of data to graph, let me know.
