Looking back I did a pretty poor job of blogging in 2012.
So 2013 is now a week in and things are heating up.
We just closed the CFP for Ruby on Ales. I’m actively working on getting registration open for the Los Angeles Ruby Conference. We are recording HTML 5.tx in Austin, Texas on February 2, 2013. It’s a single day three track conference. Cindy Denison, James Bachman, and Joey Sisk will be recording the event, because I will be busy elsewhere…
Elsewhere… My oldest Daughter Wendy Elizabeth Randquist is getting married on February 2, 2013 in Athens, OH. So that’s where I’ll be, and with any luck all of my girls will be there!
In June of 2013 my father and I are taking a journey to back to Sweden. The land of my ancestry, my Great Grandfather immigrated to the United States from Sweden. I will also be attending the Nordic Ruby conference while we are there!
Things at AT&T are going great, I have the fortune of working with an incredible team of software engineers, most of which I’ve had the pleasure of working with before. I’ll be expanding my team(s) in 2013 we’re doing some really cool work with OpenStack and are contributing to the OpenStack implementation in Fog.
Rapid Rhino RC is growing slowly, I’ve managed to get 84 subscribers so far, it will be fun to see what kind of base I can increase to in 2013.
I put together a a little app I call “By The Numbers” inspired by feltron.com as kind of a personal glimpse into some details from 2012. I figure I’ll work on it over the next 12 months and see what I can do to make it more automated. Currently only the checkin information is data driven.
2013 promises to be a great year. I’m truly looking forward to it!
