This past year has been full of unexpected twists and turns but overall it’s been pretty fun.
On the professional side of things, I’ve enjoyed participating in lots of interesting private bug-bounty programs and getting more involved in learning new development languages.
By working on other software projects, though, it’s really reinforced how important it is to keep up with the latest design trends. Especially with some of the commercial code I’ve been able to work with, it seems much more heavily abstracted than I’m used to.
In the upcoming year, I’m hoping to get more hands-on experience with more the more advanced OOP styles.
