The future of stuff

Hello readers. I'm just wrapping up here at CodeMash 2014, so it seems like a good time to evaluate... stuff.

First, let's talk about 2013, because I did a lot of stuff:

  • Presented a session at CodeMash 2013
  • Got a book published: AOP in .NET
  • Taught two semesters of Web Development at Capital University
  • Helped to organize and run the last CODODN conference (it will be relaunhced as the Midwest Tech Fest)
  • Toured all over the place at conferences and user groups, talking about refactoring and AOP
  • Doing some live webinars for PostSharp
  • Helped run a few small things for CodeMash 2014
  • My full-time job at Zimbra (formerly Telligent), and helped to release Analytics 4.0
  • I was awarded a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award

So, here's some 2014 stuff:

  • I think I will be travelling and speaking less (i.e. I won't be submitting much, but I certainly remain open to invitations)
  • I plan to write/screencast more
  • I plan to write and share a lot more code, especially mobile apps
  • I will still be helping to organize and run the Midwest Tech Fest

As part of this initiative, this blog will be changing from being focused mainly on AOP to having a more general focus. This does not mean AOP is going away! I'm still very much interested in AOP. I am just expanding the concerns across which I am cutting.

Also, I think I may try to change this site over to some sort of Bootstrap layout/theme.
