My year in reading 2016

For the past few years I've done my year in books. But, books are only a portion of what I read. I also read a ton of content on the web. With that in mind, I'm adding another wrinkle based on an email I received from Pocket with a summary of what I saved/read there. In case you don't feel like clicking, here's the high points: You read a ton in Pocket this year and…

2015 Favorite GitHub Projects

I like to create this list at the beginning of a new year and have been doing so for a couple years. I find this is the perfect time for me to talk about and filter through my starred GitHub projects. The hope is that others will find something useful and my world will be a little less cluttered. Here's my list in the order I discovered the projects: H2O - the optimized HTTP/1, HTTP/…

My Year in Books 2015

I have been setting readying goals on goodreads for a few years now. For 2015, I set my goal to read 25 books. I started out the year ahead of scheduled, but I finished my last book with just a couple days to spare. Turns out I had not classified one of my books as being read in 2015, so I actually finished my 26th book with just days to spare. You can see the books…

2014 Favorite GitHub projects

Everyone loves lists and the beginning of a new year is a perfect time for me to talk about my starred GitHub projects. I also use this as a way to filter what I have saved through the year and to only keep what I will likely use. Here's my list in the order I discovered the projects: android-validation-komensky - annotation based form validation for Android Android Image Resizer - Tool for resizing Android images for…

My year in books 2014

Goodreads was kind enough to send me my Year in Books summary. My favorite work related book of the year was Effective Perl Programming it is full of excellent Perl pointers and is a must read if you ever write Perl. The most entertaining thing I read this year was East of West Volumes 1 and 2. I have a hard time choosing between Divergent, Kill Decision, and Lock In as my favorite novel but I…

2013 Favorite GitHub projects

The end of the year is here and after reading countless best of and countdown lists I found an opportunity to create my own. I realized a long time ago that most of my bookmarks were to GitHub projects. At that point, I stopped creating GitHub bookmarks and started starring projects. I accumulate a lot of great projects. Some of them seem awesome when I am introduced them, but over time I realize it's very unlikely…

My year in books 2013

I track the books I read on Goodreads and today they sent me my year in books. Some excellent reads in there, but I would have sworn I read more than 20 books. Goodreads is an excellent site for tracking your reading and getting recommendations based on your reading history. If you are on Goodreads you can find me here, send me a friend request.…
