A Sudden Rush to The Head

ScreenHunter_05 Dec. 31 00.44

It’s really quite some time that I logged my last post. I never been to such on the web side these past few years. I have been busy working on with the family life and the work that I have been doing since 2013.

I moved from a web developer to an ABAP programmer. ABAP is a native programming language in SAP. We do mostly support work to the existing HR system we have.

It just struck me to write something. What I have done this past 2 years?

It just felt I was left behind with the technologies in the web. Though the system we maintain is a web app most of its backbone code are done in SAP. Though still in the cloud computing industry, the adrenaline rush of having a web application from scratch is such a liberating experience. On the other hand, solving problem as a support, would give thrills as well.

I still wanted to do developer work, I just need to find time on my very busy schedule at home on how to squeeze those activities, and there goes the alibis. My last post here was something about Symfony, that did not quite blossom in the early stages. Before I got to insert another alibi for myself, I would rather create a few pledges that I need to work on this coming year.

I am thinking of being conscious of my health. My lower body is really a pain in the eyes and a pain in my system, it would really hurt my back a lot. So I need to reduce on the tummy part. I need to cut that giant bulge, I missed my feet already.

Designing, I need to have a concern to the industry that I became my bread and butter. If I can mentor in the office, sure I can inspire others. Besides from joining some discussions on the user groups on facebook, well, I need to inspire others by creating something awesome.

I need to finish something that I started doing. I just need to finish the task, it doesn’t matter if I got paid, I just need to finish, I need to deliver what is supposed to be delivered and document it!

These are just some things I need to prepare myself from. Hopefully I will not be distracted, just focus and put the game face on.

Something to make you remember, taking notes are vital in creating a project in detail. Here are some tools to make your note taking like a pro.

Springnote – If you are a massive note taker, Springnote is just a tool for you. An OpenID enabled note taking application that can take you to another level. Add video and images to your notes and of course, collaborate with your team mates.

Evernote – Simple is beauty. The beauty to this is that the app can be in your tablet phone and of course PC or laptop. The take to this application is the drag and drop feature that allows to see your note clips offline. Plus they have this cool secret email.

A Post of a Lazy Blogger

What is the purpose of joining this post per week thingy if you can’t post even one post per week, I am lazy to commit this job. Well there are many things going on the office deadlines and never ending revisions and revisions of the past programs we made. Well at least, our team is almost there to finish, just a little bit more testing.

This is really a post from a lazy blogger and office time bandit, I just finished the additional features for the web based accounting system made by my resigned colleague. The torch is passed on to me so I will continue to pour it with bugs and lags (hehehe) so much for the concern.

This is the second entry if you still interested in the first one, well here it is.
