Summary 2005

[ #28173 ]

Following spur's tradition I'll add my summary of 2005, too


  • My team turned from a being the internet department of an advertising agency to being our own little company.
  • I got promoted to "Mitglied der Geschäftsleitung" which basically means the I run the store :)
  • Besides being an overall good year, we gained a couple of large new customers and managed to achieve a 55% growth rate and we have fixed projects for next year which should sum up to least an extra 33% growth
  • We launched an internet lottery with live broadcating of the drawings every 3 minutes
  • I looked into switching our web development to Catalyst but had to find out that it's not much different than what we have been doing for 4 years now.
  • We switched our source control to svn and are very happy with it
  • We started using RT but found out that its just too big for us
  • We started using wikimedia for knowledge management
  • We will start using Trac next year
  • Still with me? Want to work for us? :)


  • I turned 25 - a quarter century, that is. Getting old...
  • I went on a 2 weeks snowboarding vacation to austria and I just finished making a movie from it
  • In fall I spend 2 weeks in greece in a very nice house righr next to the water
  • My girlfriend is still with me.


  • Smalltalk best Practices - Kent Beck - Must Read!
  • Perl best Practices - Damian Conway - Must Read!
  • Code Complete - Steve McConnel - No done yet
  • Higher Order Perl - MJD - Very Good, but the books wants to talk to Ex-C programmers and I am an ex-smalltalk programmer.
  • Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture - Martin Fowler - Very Good
  • User Interface Design - Joel Spolsky - Not convinced
  • Joel on Software - Joel Spolsky - Funny
  • The Diamond Age - Neal Stephenson - Masterpiece
  • Snow Crash - Neal Stephenson - Masterpiece
  • Cryptonomicon - Neal Stephenson - Masterpiece
  • The Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown - alright
  • Digital Fortress - Dan Brown - sucks bad
  • Angels & Demons - Dan Brown - alright

Next year I'll read more tech books and everything by Neal Stephenson that I haven't read yet
