Back in Canada

Posted on May 30, 2017 in Birding, Blog, Training / Conferences | 0 comments

Nice to be back in Canada again! My wife and I just got back from a trip to Europe for the React Europe conference, plus a whole lot of birding. No terribly outstanding bird photos from the trip, but here’s a page containing a few. Holy crap European warblers are hard to ID. Only by the very end was I starting to really know the voices.

The React conference was terrific. I now have a stack in mind for my next personal project. But first… Form Tools! Man, so much work to do. I’m starting a new job next week so I have a few more days off. Let’s see if I can make these days count.

react-europe (and birding, naturally)

Posted on May 11, 2017 in Birding, Training / Conferences | 0 comments

Next week I’m very excited to be heading off to Paris for this year’s react-europe conference. It being Paris and all, my wife decided oh-what-the-hell and will be coming along for the trip. After the conference we’re going to be driving up through France to Belgium, then onto Amsterdam where we fly back.

Really looking forward to the conference. I enjoyed ng-conf a few weeks back, but I definitely consider myself a React guy. I’ve also spent the last 2 months reading my European bird book over and over, so all in all I’m exceedingly excited for this trip. If all goes according to plan, I’ll soon be boring the tears out of family and friends with a new array of bird photographs… ah, joy.

Form Tools site rewrite

Posted on Feb 8, 2017 in Blog, Form Tools, Open Source Projects | 2 comments

Almost there…! I’ve been posting regular updates on the Form Tools twitter account, but the new site is almost ready for prime time. You can find the staging environment here:
https://next.formtools.org

Finding time to finish it off is the tricky part. If I could drop everything, I’d say it’s only 2 or 3 days away, but since I have a day job (and a helluva commute) it’ll probably be 2 or 3 weeks. Doesn’t help that our car died, so a lot of time is going into finding a replacement. But… coming soon!

Man, can’t wait for this to be done so I can return to the actual script itself.

EDIT: the new site has been released. Few issues here and there, but on the whole it’s been pretty successful. Form Tools 3 is now coming along. :)
