May 2009 be as good as 2008

Well, 2008 was a really good year for me, I got to work on nice projects (HomeDepot, Viagra, TELUS) and this blog’s audience grew nicely. I had an objective of getting 10k visits each month at the beginning of January 2009 and I finally got 150% percent that, so 15 000 visits. I can say that everything rolled my way nicely this year.

I know 2009 is supposed to be a tought year considering the recession and all, but I am confident that I will do well no matter what. A couple of things can explain this confidence, first I see the bunch of projects that I have lined in front of me for the comming months which will provide me work until the second half of the year. Also witnessing how much I improved this year technically speaking, I can’t imagine where I will be next year. All in all 2009 will be a good year.

So, as all starting year post I will set myself new objectives. Writting them here will give me more incentives to attain them in order to protect my pride. I guess my first objective will be to augment the attendance to this blog to 35 ooo visits a month. That is a bit bigger than doubling what I have right now. My second objective would be to write 2 – 3 articles for other publication¬† like the one I did for InsideRIA. I would also like to start looking for speaking opportunities, I don’t put to much emphasis on that one but my long term goal is to give a presentation (about topic like SEO, Google Analytics for Flash, PureMVC) in a conference somewhere in 2010. My last goal would be to look around for MBAs that I might find interesting. I always wanted to do a master degree, but since I started working that thought as been pushed back a bit, but I think next year might be a good year to go back to school; at least part time.

I also have some personal objectives like going to the gym more often and eating better, but that is of lesser interest to this blog.

I hope you all get a good 2009 year and that the recession does not darken to much what you see for yourself in the coming year.

This is not SPAM, VIAGRA.ca is live!

I have been working hard (that’s the last joke I make on this, I don’t event know if I am allowed) on this website for a long time, but it’s finally live!. Because of canadian regulation on advertising and pharmaceutical prescription drug, the process of making the canadian version of the VIAGRA website is unlike other; more steps are involved when you try to get content approved. So that’s why I have been working on this for a long time, but it’s finally out and I am really happy of the results.

What is funny when you work on a project for such a long time is the fact that you improve so much in the mean time, that you look back at your early code and you can’t believe you did that. During I was working on the VIAGRA website,¬† I switched animation package three time to end up with TweenLite, I started looking at SWFAddress now I kinda use it on every project, knew nothing about AS3 and so on. It was also the first project where I started using Object Oriented techniques to build it.

When I present a website I did, I like to list all the libraries I used, so here I go again. Well first it was all built in Actionscript 2.

Most of the 3D was done using 3D Studio Max exept for the button animations that where done using Maya.

Well that’s it, go and hang around the VIAGRA.ca clubhouse!

That conclude my week of posting everyday (well I didn’t post yesterday, but I posted twice today), see you in a month (just joking).
