Remoteness makes for better quality of communication. Far flung teams spend the time they have together more effectively. And, as a programmer, being able to better manage your distractions and your communication in blocks of time makes for HUGE improvements in productivity and quality of work. Just sayin’.
I’ve also spent a lot of time with the newish, and rapidly improving library KineticJS, which automates a lot of the humdrum of canvas work and makes layering canvases a breeze. I finally signed up for a Github account, mostly so I could contribute to this project. I’ve written six filters in the past several weeks and I will be posting articles here with the code for at least a couple of them.
I’ve also gotten the chance to work with the Facebook API for the first time, and that is a whole other ball of wax, to be explored more in the future! In the meantime, time to update the resume with new technologies!
