2010 in Review

by alex_gaynor

Now that the decades almost over (or maybe not, if the millennium started in 2001 did the decade start then as well?), it's time for a little year in review:

  • Finished another year of school, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
  • Went to PyCon, attended the language summit, gave a talk, had a blast.
  • Got an iMac.
  • Went to DjangoCon.eu, gave a talk, had a blast.
  • Went to PyOhio, gave a talk, had a blast (starting to sense a trend?).
  • Did GSOC again, this time working on a refactor of some of the ORM infrastructure for Django with an eye towards adding support for non-relational databases. It went pretty well, haven't started the merging yet though.
  • Went to a conference on education, gave a talk, had a blast.
  • Went to DjangoCon, wait for it... gave a talk, had a blast.
  • Turned 20.
  • Became a Django core developer.
  • Increased my contributions to PyPy.
  • Participated in the PyCon program committee.
  • Said thank you to a few people who were absurdly deserving of it.
  • Utterly failed at my attempt to blog once a week for a year, and then failed again at National Blog Post Month (aka NAMBLA).

I'm sure I'm forgetting tons of stuff, that's ok, it was a pretty good year either way. No predictions for 2011, just a hope that it'll kick some ass.

Sorry, no comments here. I'd much rather you wrote your own blog post instead. Comments are never going to happen. Stop trying to make comments happen.
