2010 in recap

I wanted to sit and write this for a long time. The problem is that this year it is not as straight forward as the past two years, for multiple reasons. First, I have been working a lot lately which kinda pains me a bit, but I guess it comes with working in New York. The workload has impacted how much I could commit to this blog, I wrote 39 posts this year compared to 43 last year (ok not a huge difference, but still I wanted to write one post a week). Secondly, the last two years, making a recap of the year was pretty easy, everything went well and the path forward was clear. I mean everything went pretty well this year too, I got hired by the best production company in the world (B-Reel), in New York to top it and I got to work on amazing projects. The thing is that my future isn’t as clear anymore. What I liked the previous years was the fact that I was improving so much as a programmer, I really like to learn, but I can’t say that I learned as much this year, the last big improvement in my programmer’s skills was Robotlegs (or frameworks in general) and that seems so long ago. Since then, I improved a little but nothing significant. If I look as to what I could learn more it becomes very abstract and I don’t really think I am interested in that, I left Computer Sciences after all because it was too abstract, but it is slowly making its way back to me.

So yeah, here I am, asking myself how long I will still be a programmer and if that is what I really want to do in life. I think the last couple of post I wrote kinda show that, they are more about concepts and ideas than about code. Another thing that is pretty funny, as much as I hate the Creative Technologist title, I think it applies to me pretty well. I like the ideas, the concepts, not so much implementing them (except if it is my ideas). I guess I could also become an architect, I like shaping a project, just not finishing it. I don’t know…

That being said, even if I am reflecting on this right now, I am stills confident about my future, it has always been good. I am not too stressed, I will end up in a nice place.

    I just feel the same way right now. I like to structure a project, but I don’t like coding all the visual stuffs. Well, as usual, we just seem to follow the same path

    Oh well, you can be whatever you wanted to be if you love what you do so go for it.
