During the last few weeks I wanted to talk about several things in this blog, some related to coding tecniques, some more personal, but I didn’t have much time to do so. With the exception of this project and some collaborative work on a Ruby book, I didn’t even have much time to code or be at the computer at all.
Nevertheless it has been a very exciting period, stressful but rich in hopes and challenges. In fact I’ve been so busy because on Friday I am finally moving to Canada, in the Toronto Area, where I will work for a great IT company. This is very exciting. The only weak note is that I had to get rid of my wide collection of IT books. The few ones that I’ll be able to ship/bring with me are shown in the photo.
Anyways I look forward to living in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, working for one of the most respected companies – where I’m sure I’ll be able to learn a lot (I’ve so much to learn!!) from some of the best minds out there. I know that there are lots of Ruby/Rails related activites and events in the GTA area, and I’m really looking forward to meeting other Rubyists and “Railists”, maybe sipping a good coffee at the Linux Caffe.
Code is waiting to be written and doughnuts to be eaten 🙂
