Friday. First friday after coming back from Holidays. I almost forgot to write this weeknote. Winter is arriving to Iceland and I’m enjoying a couple of weeks of part time work sponsored by Madrid’s school system. This is one of those situations where the flexibility of being your own boss shines. I’m still not sure if it’s always for better, but the fact is that I’m picking my son from school at noon and I’ve to work late at night to finish my tasks.
Regarding work, this week has been also regular. We’re on a roll, two in a row!. Aitor has been mainly working on Verkami and Stage. I’ve been trying to get a couple projects back in track, hiring a designer to help us in Bazaar and figuring out how to finish a project called Plankio which was frozen three months ago. I managed to write a small ruby gem to generate Norma34 files, a standard from the spanish bank industry for issuing wire transfers. This gem should be used by Stage and a couple of projects, including Plankio.
And finally my reading recommendation for the weekend. If you have seen my last recommendations, you may figure out that I’m in some kind of introspective moment in my life. And you would be right. So, if you have enjoyed these series, you will probably enjoy Gregory Ciotti’s post ‘How to Avoid the Natural Reactions that Prevent Good Decision Making’.
Have a nice weekend.
