2010 wrap-up

2010 has been a decent year. It started a bit slow, but it has been pretty productive for the last couple of months. Looking back at the goals I sat for myself in January, it seems I completed most of them:

  • Released 3 open source projects: Nollie, ViewStateToDB and AutoMock.
  • Learned the basics of jQuery, ASP.NET MVC, Silverlight and Windows Phone programming.
  • Started working with the new version of Entity Framework, "Code-First", but did not have time to look into nHibernate.
  • Wrote 33 blog posts.
  • Read a few books on design patterns and Domain-Driven Design.
  • Improved my architectural skills and testing skills.
  • Though I did not manage to become a MCPD.

All in all I'm satisfied with 2010, but hopefully 2011 will be even better.
