2018 Year in Review, Part I

2018 was a year of personal growth. This blog post aims to summarize 2018 before I set goals for 2019.


My First Think Week: I did a Bill Gates style think week this year. I spent the week alone reading books about operating system and programming language design. The knowledge gained was useful for some technical challenges at work related to a custom programming language and virtual machine used in FarmBot. I intend to do this again in 2019.

Books: Below is a non-exhaustive list of noteworthy reads:

Travel and Events

Finished Projects and Accomplishments

Ongoing Projects

Now that 2018 is wrapped up, I will discuss my plans for 2019.
