Just south of Sète, France
Each summer vacation if I do not have anything better to do, I try study a subject in some detail, something I can use in my daily work. I wrote a post about my Summer of Code . This year I decided to study computer language ‘D’ , but unfortunately I found better things to do. A summer vacation which I have blogged about here , here and here . Back at the office I had to clean up the mess I thought I had created during the vacation, fortunately this time I was not to blame . Then I have to replace some hardware and create a data warehouse for Fuji Air Tools factory .
I also have to do some web programming, we may need an Excel sheet like grid application with the capability to communicate bi-directionally with SAP. If you have followed my blogging you know I’m not a good experienced web programmer. I have with the help of my friend Andreas decided to learn the Sencha/ExtJS framework to jumpstart my web capabilities.
Up in the mountains, Axel and Erik. Down behind is a pit hundreds of meters deep.
So much for my Summer of Code 2012. I have to postpone ‘D’. When I have time for ‘D’ then I probably will choose Perl6 , it looks like Perl6 begins to be ready for production in some not too distant future. At the moment I doubt I will have time for Sencha/ExtJS, but we’ll see.
I pray next year I have time for ‘D’ and Perl6, or better the year after. I like to go down to France next year again. I’m beginning to be a francophile like my son Axel. This country has it all from skiing to beach life. And so much more. I have some colleagues in Nantes, maybe I should ask if they have some work for me.
