Yeah, sorry about that. Probably it's only a heartbeat on the blog. Not likely that I write any new article in the near future. Although I'd like to inform you, what I'm up to so far.
So, I kinda started to learn Objective C. My first goal is to write a decent iPhone application. Just for fun, for learning the language and getting some experience. I have certain plans, but I don't want to speak about it yet. I've found the official Apple documentation good. But - how to say. It's just too much to dive in for beginners like me. I've bought a quite good book: http://www.amazon.com/Learn-Objective-ndash-Mac/dp/1430218150/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1283887700&sr=8-1 It describes the fundamentals of the language. For me some part seems really weird, like filters and modifiers. But hey, compiler matters, not the syntax. Unfortunately in the last couple of months I also hung that on, but intent to start working with it again.
I did some major refactoring on my Grpahmind app. It was a good experience for me but still can't feel the good level with design patterns. I have to learn a lot. The trick is that you have to know the future capabilities and the current features. I felt sometimes I did overkill with separation. And misused a lot of patterns. One thing for sure, you have to do it again and again.
I was involved quite a lot of Drupal projects as well. I really like it. I'm getting more experience about the actual site-architect part and also about the Drupal-ways. Thanks to my current company and our lead I can work in Brussel now for a month and a half in a huge company. It's a really good experience just seeing how things are going in a different, enterprise environment. You can feel it, you can see it. It's amazing. It's a completely different workflow.
That's it. I'd like to come back with some beneficial articles later, so see you.
