This year has obviously been a lot different than everyone expected. I feel extremely fortunately and lucky to be in an industry that naturally makes it easy to work from home. In fact, remote work is something I've wanted to try full-time for quite some time, and this year has not only forced it to happen, but also made it more normal in our industry (hopefully now moving forwards). It's just a shame it took something so terrible as what's happening for this to become a thing.
It's that time of the year again for another year in review blog post! 2019 was a great year, and I continue to feel incredibly lucky to have landed in an industry that I see as a hobby; am very passionate about; pays well; and is full of such amazing people!
As another year draws to an end, it's time for another year in review blog post. And this year I hit the big "four-zero", so it also marks the end of a decade! But don't worry - I won't try and overview the past decade in this post - let's stick with 2018!...
It's close to the end of another year already! And whilst in some ways, it feels like it has flown by - in other ways, an awful lot has happened! The main thing this year has definitely been .NET Oxford. Our first meetup was only in January, which is a very short amount of time really. It feels like it's been around for much longer!
Well, 2015 was definitely quite an interesting year - with two job changes, and the start of my own company! But far more importantly - we had the very exciting news that we're going to have another little baby boy mid 2016!
