In my new attempts, I will strive to further limit non-software development topics for this blog. I am thinking of a couple others specifically for electronic and energy experiments as I do like to tinker, and no other topics beyond those at the moment, even if politics does tend to affect my sensibilities.
I have nothing against other topics outright, but they seem more suited to other compartmentalized blogs or resources, and too, planning and writing, even about topics which I'm knowledgeable, takes time regardless of its enjoyment, and I would like this round to be more lasting, and hopefully reaching into my elder years; which would be a good run, and perhaps wishful dreaming :-)
My hope is this post will be a public, self inspiring or fulfilling way to kick start the process of writing again (and a reminder). Who knows, maybe it will lead to a YouTube channel as well, but I love the written format.
With more responsibility, maturity, and a family, I hope can keep at it, and it becomes something I can share with my children and family, and though they may or may not write about software, electronics, or energy, perhaps they will be inspired to produce content of their own, and discover the act of creation is just as much about learning and enjoyment as anything.
A sample of topics I am pondering for the software blog include
- the Amazon Cloud
- Microservices; including Sprint Boot and Dropwizard
- Data Stores
- HTML5 Games and Phaser.io
- Drone and Quadcopter Software
- NetBeans and the NetBeans Platform
We will see.
For some relevant background, I am a husband, father, amateur experimenter, and software engineer with over 18 years experience architecting and implementing solutions for multiple computing profiles using various technologies and operating systems.
With my current personal time, I am attempting game design and development as well as learning Drone technology. I also dabble in simple energy experiments such as salt water batteries and biodiesel, try to learn as much about physics and mathematics as I can find time, and have a few other interests.
Life is way too short, and goes by way too fast. See you next time.
