2011 New Year’s Resolutions

Posted by: Ramin on December 30, 2010

2010 was a pretty incredible year both professionally and personally. My iPhone app ended up winning Macworld Best of Show a few weeks after release. I was part of the team that developed the iPad Slot Machine app which won “Coolest App” award at the first iPadDevCamp (that’s my Tinker Toy iPad stand pictured in this article, btw).

The best event by far, however, was our small family expanding by a happy, healthy, rambunctious +1.

The rest of the year was mostly a blur of WWDC, iOSDevcamps, and building cool iOS projects for clients. I did end up making time for a side project and I hope it will turn into a main project in the coming year. It’s not quite ready yet but I’ve shown it privately here in Silicon Valley and had a lot of positive feedback.

I don’t mean to build it up too much but it’s my biggest project yet, going back and revisiting some of the original ideas behind web technology and relating it to the mobile world. I’m calling it Transom. There’s still some work left but I hope to be able to share it openly in 2012.

As far as New Year’s resolutions go, I’d like to make time to post more often and not only on coding matters but also broader topics of technology trends, its impact on our lives, and about subjects I think need to be talked about. I’m excited about the coming year — about life and tech and society — and hope to do a decent job of conveying that enthusiasm.

See you on the flip side and Happy New Year!
