2021 Update

So, it’s my first time writing one of these… Let’s see how this goes, shall we?

This year has been full of twists and turns. From meeting new people to starting new projects to stepping down from projects that I no longer wished to be involved in, things have turned out in a way that I most definitely could not have predicted.

One of the new projects I started is my Twitch channel (https://twitch.tv/redstonedesigner) where I play games and am exploring the possibility of doing some development livestreams. I try to stream every Tuesday, Friday & Sunday at around 6 – 7 PM UTC and am typically live for 3 – 4 hours, so do feel free to drop in and say hi. A special thanks to everyone who appears on-stream with me and to everyone who drops into the stream chat – I wouldn’t be able to do it without you all.

I have had the opportunity to significantly enhance my programming skills to the point where I feel confident working on projects by myself and have actually developed multiple systems either for educational courses or for production systems. The same goes for my systems administration skills, which have now expanded to include Workspace/MS365 management, SSO implementations and containerization, among other things.

I can think of many more things I could add to this post, however I think that it would make this post extremely long. I’ll summarise in two words: Thank you. Thank you to everyone who has stood by me and supported me when I was feeling down. Thank you to everyone who has helped me when I needed it. Thank you to everyone who has put up with my interesting personality and way of communicating. Thank you to everyone that I have met and am happy to call my friends.
