In the last month that I’ve generally ignored that itch in my head suggesting that I go make some posts up here on GeekApproach. I did fullfull my internal process of trying to learn something new each day. In early December I started work on an iPad app for doing a gallery slideshow. That process (and its still going) led me to picking up an OpenGL book to attempt some of that API’s craziness.
In the meantime, I received an iPad as a gift from my parents for Christmas. I’m completely thrilled with it and have loaded up some of my previous iOS projects on it as samples. I feel completely energized in solving some of these issues because…
…I’m participating in an RFP that might involve me doing some hardcore development and other awesomeness. I’m trying not to get too excited about it, but I’m heading down to present with the team in two weeks. If we nab it, its probably 8-10 months of solid work for me which would be great.
Lastly, the project I’ve been working on for the last 6 weeks comes to a head next week– I’m headed to CES, the Consumer Electronics Show to help TD a keynote for a client. Should be stressful, challenging and fun all at the same time. I’ve arranged to stay an extra day to actually see some of the show as well as set up some conversations with potential employers for myself. I’m hoping some really good things come out of these meet-ups.
So: We’ll see what happens next, but I’m keeping all of my fingers and toes crossed. Look for some posts of my wanderings from the CES floor. Should be pretty crazy.
