Yesterday - The year 2007

My blog

I restarted blogging on the first of July. Since that day I posted 72 articles, this is actually the 1st one of the new year.  I wanted my blog to consist partly of posts about Life and partly about Technology. I think I have succeeded in this.

 

After all I've made a lot of posts in the first months and stabilized the amount of posts in the last three months.

Life

2007 was also the year of Lifehacking for me. As this hype already exists for some years now, I just got into Lifehacking for the first this year. I blogged about topics like the Law of Attraction and Time Management.

Technology

This year I learned a lot about Inversion of Control and besides this I studied some on the new technologies by Microsoft like WCF, WPF, WF, but also Astoria (now know as the ADO.NET Data Services) and MOSS 2007. But everything still was very basic, but there are too many new technologies released by Microsoft to be an expert in everything. But some basic understanding on these technologies is interesting for me to know.

Also this year was the year of publications. In September this year an article from my hand about Dependency Injection was published in the Dutch .NET Magazine. I also wrote two other articles with a former college.

This year I also completed my MCPD Enterprise Application's certification. I'm not sure about what to do next year, but more on that in a different post.

My private projects

As I did in the past, I also started some small private projects this year. And the same as in the past no project did really make it to web. Like the Personal Performance Indicators project and the Local History project. I haven't had much time to work on those projects, but they aren't dead.

My private life

This year I moved from The Hague in The Netherlands to Zoetermeer in The Netherlands. Besides this I also changed jobs and now work for Rubicon. I still love working for Rubicon every day, haven't found anything negative! Also this year I married my lovely wife Yvonne.

A lot of changes this year. And ahead a new year, the year 2008. More about 2008 in a post next year.

Note: I made all the charts using Google Chart API.
