Almost 2019 it seems. If I give a little thought of 2018, it seems that I've done much more compared to 2017. Mainly because almost all of my spare time went solely to myself and computers. Somewhat bitter-sweet, lol.
There are a few notable things for me. And, again, mostly related to computers.
I've put a program which was written in Haskell at $WORK. AFAICT, my $WORK is the first company 'round here that put Haskell into production. I've also learnt a lot from this process. Though mostly not directly related to technical aspect.
If I remember correctly, I wanted to have a mechanical keyboard circa 2015. And this year, I decided to actually do that. One thing leads to another, now I'm building my fourth mech. keyboard. What the actual fuck, yeah. That's excessive. And, because I dislike gaudy things, I keep my keyboards as simple as possible.
I wrote a Scala application for my graduation req. So, I somewhat have a softspot to that language. By chance, I saw Mr. Halliday's book about FP in Scala and, "Screw it! Let's translate that book for shit and giggle!", I said to myself in my building's toilet. I've learned a lot of things in the process. Not only I can be categorised as an uneducated dude, but also I've never read computer science literature in my mother tongue. All in all, it was a nice experience.
I don't know, I guess I need something to think about when $WORK is not really nice. Fortunately, my old man had something for me to do. Though practically I spend some pennies here and there because of this thing, it's alright. I like playing around with something new like Elm and Dart.
Well, I've spent almost 5.000.000 just for his food. Yeah, what the fuck indeed. Not only that, he also doesn't want to stay still whenever I am home. What a prick! I still love him, tho!
Or perhaps ambient sounds. Lately, I tend to put Shaykh Nazim (may God be pleased with him) , Shaykh Hisham, and Dr. Nour Kabbani's suhbats when I do something.
May he found the peace he couldn't find in this life and write the network stack directly to God in His heaven.
Also F U CIA!
I want to learn GUI programming. Preferably something native and cross platform. So, fltk is at the top list. Perhaps, I will try to write a 4chin or rebbit client. idk.
Not interpreter, but a compiler. Though probably it will take more than 6 months of spare time.
Basically that's it. Yeah, I did not much but arguably much more than the previous year. I have nothing to expect, by the way.
