Hello again or returning to old self

Merry Christmas!!!

It has been a while since my last post. Many things has changed – I have took on a new challenge changing the job and moving back to California. And wasn’t it a great decision!

With new job I have moved away from Delphi. In fact, I probably now do more in PHP then in Delphi. Yet, it is a C# which is main Dev language for me now.

Do I regret using Delphi for many years? No. It was a great ride. But, at some point it is coming to what is more relevant for the projects you are taking on.

So, what do I do? Silverlight/WCF/WPF/SQL Server/Reporting Services even developing for iPad/iPhone/Mac – anything what delivers what I need for projects at hand.

Being in more management role then ever before, I still remain a developer inside and like to explore all new things.

PDC2010 was great. Do you love this HTML5/Silverlight controversy, don’t you?

Year comes to the end and as I look back, I recognize all the greatness of past moments.

Past experience give us means of moving forward in life and I want to praise not just one but my last 5 years. They gave me more “food for thoughts” then ever. How to be a great leader and how not to be a not-so-great one. It is always nice to look at someone else for inspiration. These years taught me a great deal about leadership and what it means to be an effective leader. We see a lot discussions on rule of thumb on how to be a great leader, but it is bad leader examples which make us empowered with experience in life.

So let’s be better, make our life and life of people around us better as well. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

  • About

    From a junior developer through Sr Manager position, I was always interested in new technologies. Passionate speaker, IT junky, developer, architect, team lead, and development manager - many hats, one goal - making software better and being closer to people’s needs. For the most part I am using my blog as a scratch pad, writing small articles on things which I came across, was asked about more then once, and which would otherwise require additional research again and again.
