My one goal is to build something that lets me stay at home with my lil girl all day. Have been thinking about my own company for a while, there are 2 software companies in town with very weak tech stacks. I know I am better and can do better. So my goal is to build my own company and hire enough people to take care of it while I spend more time with my daughter. I get sad when I have to drop her off at the daycare while me and the wife have to go to work. All I want to do is be with my family.11
Goals for 2018:
0. Finish some side projects
1. Take python skills to the next level
2. Start a new bigger project.
3. Dive into machine learning2
1. Learn Kotlin
2. Actually sit down and push through machine learning.
3. Finish integral calculus and start multivariable calc.
4. Work on 1 project until completion.
5. Socialize a bit more.
6. Obliterate bugs.5
Did you know that talking about your goals actually decreases your chances of reaching them? It's a form of social validation. Talking about them and receiving praise from your peers in a sort of mini-goal which could replace the actual goal so you are less motivated to actually go for the real goal. Best of luck anyway! May the odds be ever in your favor when facing procrastination😂1
Maybe getting past intermediate and actually make something people will use.2
1. Actually focusing on developing stuff instead of learning languages.
2. Having fun instead of trying too hard.
3. Get a good job.2
- Learn git/github
- Create and finish a useful project on my Raspberry Pi
- Successfully organize a LoL tournament in my school, and develop something related to it
- Do not lose my mind when my programming teacher keeps saying bullshit
- Install a Linux distro along with my Windows as dualboot
- F u c k i n g clean that computer case a l r e a d y
- Finish the website I have been making for like half a year for my hobby
- Be active on devRant5
1. Get rubber ducky
2. Finish Android Oreo for my phone.
3. Do some stuff.
4. Well I don't fucking know I don't have plans for few fucking months !!!
5. Fucking Really ?
6. ... OK that's enough !!1

I guess that is way to optimistic but point 2 & 3 should be enough for 2018.
BUT there is also the real world:
- Graduating school
- Start studying.
So this is me for 2018 (at least the first half of it):5
This year, Lord willing...
* get married
* take a one week honeymoon without a single frantic phone call/email/IM from work or clients. Way way harder than getting married!2
Waiting for another prank by the dR team in April 1st.
Maybe they will like remotely wipe our data with parnership with the NSA.4

Hope you guys will have a nice and PRODUCTIVE 2018! :^)10
dev goals? get shit done!
I have this common illness among devs:
I start projects and never really finish them.
Hate that. Feels so empty.
So this year I finally want to get shit done.4
- Launch the new version of the system I have been refactoring for 2 years and counting, then ceremoniously burn (literally) the legacy code as well as the cluster fuck of hardware it runs on.
- Decrease my stress + bus factor by bringing another up to speed on my code & the new version (his cluster fuck now).
- Pay attention to & take better care of health, my wrists in patricular.
- Find a mentor and mentor someone else.
- Get out of crisis management mode and find the time to write tuts, experiment and live a little.
- Find & join a local dev meetup, maybe make a local dev friend.
- Book leave and actually take it, preferabbly without having to take my laptop to the beach - actually, preferabbly at least have the choice to take a offline vacation.
- Sort through the drives containing ALL the code I have ever written, migrate the usefull interesting bits to Github.
Phew, that bit of self reflection was intense! I'm adding a cron to my server to sms & email me this rant in a year to remind me what hope looks like.
There's a bunch of things I want to get around to this year:
- learn Scala
- get a job/an internship in programming
- start a blog
- start and finish at least a couple of projects that have piled on in my to-do list
- write code that sucks less
- get better at explaining my train of thought to others and teaching
1) Apply Vue.js to a real life project
2) Make a CMS for a private school (unluckily, they don't want a standard CMS)
3) Learning wisely of the mistakes I made this year with clients ("what if we added this?")1
Always get into a slight existential crisis during this time of winter.
Is my job worth all the trouble? Should I sell my house? Break up with my love? Start using a different programming language?
Probably has something to do with the psychological effect of this arbitrary point where we consider a year to end, and begin a new one.
I have no idea yet. I think my job is the first one to go, the rest is probably salvageable.
Go outside and make some friends.
Buy a bike and go for a tour maybe.
Gonna stay away from screen for a little and tryna be a little social without social networks.1
- get better at nodejs(and a bad ass front-end dev)
- rewrite the sass to bem for my club website
- put the website for my brother and sister online

Dev goal: finishing my lightweight webserver in c++ so there's no need for apache or nginx and I can finally add logic to my webpages without php.
And finishing all my other personal projects obviously :D1
An incomplete list of 2018 personal dev goals:
* do more web development (It's fun. In a crude way.)
* finish the smart lamp I started building in 2016 ...
* fix up more electronic devices while learning their inner workings
* learn Python and some other language
* get myself a blog again
* get that testautomation thing which is haunting me in my dreams already to production
* be more relaxed
* do some home automation while not cursing all that much
Deciding whether to stick to being a web developer, or switch to something else
(thinking more like rocket software, or something with security (but maybe sticking with web), or some other cool sh#t
I don't know yet, what I do know is even when I'm creating an erp system, I find it very unsatisfying
"I helped create the software on that rocket"
"that hospital uses the system I've helped to create"
Sounds a lot more satisfying than,
"that company uses my 'warehouse resources manager'/'webshop'/'planning system'
But then again I don't know, I now have a stable job, know what to do and know the language we use.1
Design and make an easily repairable laptop so I can graduate.
Figure out how to use blender for 3d modelling
Move the majority of software use to open sourced software.6
1. Finish what is left over from 2017
2. Get some experience with machine learning
3. Finish internship and work as a normal full-time dev
Dev Goal : Fix the bugs you said you will solve in 2015, but are still open,
Because you know what fix to do,
And you are too lazy to do it.
And too busy, creating half baked, hacky fixes for new exciting problems.
Finnaly release a game and get my book to the final stages where I can start converting it to my dream game
I really hope to not be into desperate needing of the squishy ball.
Because even if I buy it, i will probably kill somebody in the expedition time.
Please 2018 be a lowstress-year
Collect more SWAGS
Collect more laptop stickers
Collect more free t-shirts
Collect more free goodies
It'd be pretty nice if I could learn how microservices work. Probably read a book or two on them in summer break. One can hope, right?
Also, probably learn how to use vim, finally. :^)

... yeah that's a lot ... *sigh*7
Finish the book I started writing a few years ago that I got half way through before stopping for some unknown reason.
Work hard at improving my skills in embedded software and electrical engineering for sure!
Since it caught my interest half a year ago, I've read several books and articles on the topic, but never got to get my hands on the actual thing.
This will definitely be the year where I'll go nuts and learn all I can to prepare for my next internship, which I really want to be related to embedded software!
Here are my goals

Learn a new compiled language;
Get better at functional programming;
Read more books about networks and software engineering;3

In 2017 the project was counting 60k lines of code (which doesn't look as too many) but I was able to remove some libraries and make my custom system, now the project is counting 10k lines of code :)
My dream is to open in these months
- Develop a cross platform app

Goals for 2018
- Add E2E test or unit tests to my projects
- learn a new (programming language) perhaps Go, or Rust
Better have a few than too many2
Finally decide whether to specialize in game development or security. Alternating every month is getting boring...1
This 2018 order students 👨🎓 👩🎓 lab. From painting walls, logistics, etc to statistic per user usage. Last admin in 2 years in a dark-age. Like these wood for students Id computer assignments. Hate it.
Question: How was you registration Computer lab? Recommend
I hate when I am being a asshole to person for their stupidity and they reply like thank you dear.1
Get Google Certified Mobile Web Specialist cert.
Start my part time degree in Computer Science.3
- Learn more to do more. Pick up my skills
- Create my own project. This is the year!
- Finally learn Python. R for life.2
My aim for this year is to change to a job which doesn't feel like that movie groundhog Day.
The current project I'm on makes me want to switch careers.2
Grinding hard passing the exams that make my life a living hell, then finally finish my 10000 side projects. Hopefully make some money of some of them. Also be very cautious about my personal well being and health as it is the most valuable thing.
I want to set aside *at least* an extra hour a week to learn something new. So something on an online course or something like that.
Learning more in depth CS and code concepts on my own. Now that I'm diving into development full time, I have to step up!
Use less dev rant. Yes I know it's ironic to post this here, but I waste way too much time on browsing through posts every day :/
I’ll let you know in a few weeks when I shake off the Christmas lethargy and depression. Happens every year and it kills me.
Same as every year, attempt to take over the world!
Honestly tho, I don't put goals for myself as I never reach em.
Just going with the flow, not giving too much a damn about anything and seeing what comes ;)
My goals for this year are
1. Dont be lazy
2. Be productive, start some programming dude!
3. Get a life.
Well finally install gentoo in aarch64 mode onto my rpi3. I wanna learn python because that'd make my life easier. I also wanna code a web game using js. I also want to finish some more parts of my hobby operating system. And maybe rework my dad's website because the code is a mess.
Finish my side project of a fully functioning online search|offer free service, show it first to you guys (and relatives) and then use it as a showoff case of my full stack skills to get a better job with better salary 😅
Become the best developer I can. Contribute to open source. Master emacs. Make people take my skills and knowledge more seriously.
In 2018 I hope to upgrade Machine Learning skills and put them to good use, ideally landing a job in the field1
-Make enough money to buy myself a laptop and a new phone to be able to work from my laptop and test on my phone.
-Be able to have better balance between my work, college and personal life.
-Do some useful open source projects (in swift) and put them on GitHub.
-Take care of my body and start working out.
-Work on my charity app idea and hopefully make big progress maybe even publish it.
Too early in the year for goals so far, but I'll give it a shot. Here's what I'm gunning for in the short-term:
Week 85 - 2018 Dev/Coding Goals:
- Continue educating myself in the Rust programming language (I feel like I dropped the ball there last year, Rust is easy to get programmer's block because it's syntax isn't always clear what should be done with it and/or why, the references. Ugghh fml).
- Get feature parity of PYXReloaded with it's predecessor, and get most of the planned features implemented. Friends of mine really want this and like screencaps I've sent already. It's a project I've been working on with @Gianlu for the past few days.
Week 85 - 2018 General/Personal Goals:
- Get over my motivational issues.
- Get over my depression/loneliness
- Get over my social anxiety.
I'm trying to better myself, both in coding and personal life. I fucking love this community. I used to use Reddit to find posts exactly like the ones here, but this is wayyy better and has everything all in one place.
Have a prosperous 2018, guys. Remember not to look at what you want to get done in just 365 days. You need to see the big picture.
For me it's going to be:
Learn cpp (for my education)
Make a game (to train cpp)
Try to find a project idea generator or build one
Be successful at my finals (18th January)
Build my custom server
Getting se Gigabit Internet
Finishing my website
And test the taste of more stressballs (see my rant about my devSwag)
