What an incredible summer and it is funny how it all started. I found myself without a job at the end of April. A week or two later I started a crazy schedule of fencing, archery and hiking amongst the usual day-to-days at home. I even got to try out some serious tree climbing and zip-lining. And I met new friends at a retreat and a number of parties too. I even got to hang out with and host Anna and Behnaz, two friends from Montreal for over a week.
At the beginning of July, after months of preparation my brother, Martin went for the Air Cadet’s gliding summer camp. After over 6 weeks of intensive work, training and practise, my brother can now legally fly a glider by himself. I am incredibly proud of him and we now have a real pilot in the family. Wow.
The past month and a half I had the honour and pleasure of hosting one of my very good friends from Italy, Laura. Laura came to visit us, see Canada and learn English. We did that and a whole lot of hiking, sightseeing and partying in Toronto, Niagara, Tobermory and Hamilton. And her English became a lot better too. I am so thankful that you came Laura and I hope you enjoyed being with us as much as we having you over. Thanks!
After a full summer, I’ve come full circle. About three weeks ago, I interviewed and got hired as a mobile developer for Web Impact. I get to work on building Android mobile applications in a great environment with awesome coworkers. I have always wanted to get into mobile programming. But I never imagined that I would be doing what I get to work on. Unfortunately I can not disclose the details of what I am working on and the technology behind it. However I can say that the technology and the way we apply it is how I envision the future of mobile, web and desktop computing will look like.
This year has been an amazing ride so far. And from what I can tell there is even more awesomeness in store.
