Quarantine Update

In many respects, self-employed life and quarantine life don't look very different. I was social distancing for a good month before stringent measures came into effect here, just writing code, blog posts, spreadsheets, etc. In terms of work style, not much has changed for me.

But of course everything has changed.

Will people still want cutting-edge Go software in the world after the pandemic? What about stories about badgers? If I even manage to survive, will any investors be left? I'll need someone to give me truckloads of money.

Stay safe everyone.

Between contracts

There's nothing like the pseudo-holiday of self-employment. Since a contract came to an end last Friday, I've been jetting around the country, specifically to cities in BC. That province has got it together.

But now I am back in Halifax and ready to buckle down again. I've got to finalize the edits for Snapback before I publish it, and there's some web stuff for friends to polish off. But other than that? I bought an irresponsible number of books on the west coast, mostly sci-fi, so I'll probably just read until it's fall.

Unless, of course, you need me to build you a data-rich web application! Or, if you have an old/broken app that needs a breath of life, that's what I do best. Let me know.
