Times are a changin'

Some of you might've noticed that I missed my regular sunday blog-post yesterday .

The reason is obviously the same as everyone else's these days: I'm out of time. Yup, I just ran out of it.

I like keeping up to date on a wide range of subjects. These roughly inolve:

  • Java programming (EE, 1.5)
  • Dynamic languages (ruby)
  • Object oriented design
  • Aspect oriented programming
  • Building, testing
  • Web programming
  • Agile methodologies (Scrum, XP)
  • Content management systems
  • Portals
  • Lots of other stuff going on in the blogosphere
Most of these are essential to any developer, but still it is too much ground for me to cover.

In order to be able doing my day job, as well as keeping on blogging and also having a personal life, I'm performing some drastic changes on my scope of attention. In concrete, I'm going to leave the CMS and Portal bits behind and focus on more "core"-like technologies. Don't get me wrong, I still have a huge interest in these two fields, but being that they are so huge and hard to follow, and that they're not really part of my daytime job anymore, I'm going to have to constrain myselves to the upper part of the list.

That's just all about I've got time for, naturally. Next sunday I'll try to post back on a harder topics, talking more about low-core programming and specific technologies I'm trying out. For those who enjoy my posts about content management and have little interest in programming: I apologize, but you might just prefer unsubscribing at this point. Thanks for reading, whatever you decide :)
