Year in Review, 2015

As 2016 dawns upon us, here’s a quick look  back at what I got up to in 2015.

 

It’s been a big year on a personal front – after an amazing journey with Gamesys, I started working at JUST EAT at the start of November. In the meantime, I also made a memorable trip to Tokyo, where I had wanted to visit for a long time

 

Continuous Learning and Sharing

I spoke at a lot of conferences this year, and learnt an awful lot along the way.

I prepared and delivered a couple of new talks:

 

I took part in and completed all 25 Advent of Code challenges in F#.

I started a series of posts converting Crista Lopes’ “Exercises in Programming Style” to F#.

I did a series on L-Systems in Elm.

I had lots of fun learning APL.

I started work on MBrace.AWS, and am getting close to a workable demo.
