It’s been another productive year for Gigi Labs, which today celebrates its 7th anniversary! Here are some of the more interesting things I’ve written in the year since the Sixth Anniversary:
- The Azure Fundamentals summaries, based on the official training material but a lot more concise
- Several Unity3D Tutorials, showing how to get started with Unity3D, especially on Linux
- Technology and Anxiety, a piece about moderating use of technology to prevent burnout
- Gathering Net Salary Data with Puppeteer: using browser automation to gather data
- Pitfalls of AutoMapper, gathering my thoughts on why using AutoMapper is a terrible idea
- A few articles about playing games on Linux
Other than that, I released early versions of Sirius Planner, my calendar-based task planner. Feel free to give it a try if you need something to organise your day-to-day tasks.
And now, enough about the past and let’s talk about the future.
Since COVID19 changed the world, I’ve had a lot of time to explore and write about technologies that were either new to me (like Azure) or that I had been meaning to revisit (like Unity3D).
However, at the same time, life circumstances have changed quite a bit, and my interest in free-time coding and writing has been waning. As a result, for the time being, I am retiring from tech blogging. It’s quite possible that I might write something interesting from time to time, but for now, let’s say I’m taking a break.
Thanks for your support for the past seven years (or more, if you’ve been following Programmer’s Ranch or any of my other, earlier sites). I’ve received a lot of positive feedback about my articles and I hope people will continue to find them useful for many years to come.
