2010 Achievements

A few of the interesting things I did in 2010 in more or less chronological order.
  • Started off flat out for the initial release of Sponsafier. By far the highest traffic site I've worked on with peaks of 26000 hits per minute.
  • linux.conf.au ate up a week and had lots of interesting things, including the first time I came across Albany High school and their awesome open source infrastructure.
  • Had an intra-office showdown between myself and Mike Lowery on Agile Bob's agile question contest. Plenty of trash-talking was had. In the end I came out victorious on the basis of being more novel and/or crazy.
  • Attended Webstock, got a sweet bag. Rives was pretty awesome too.
  • Became a Certified Scrum Professional (Which, apparently, is better than a Certified Scrum Master even though it doesn't sound like it).
  • Started thinking about planning for Rails Camp NZ
  • Organised Rails Bootcamp
  • Attempted the Milford Track. It was slightly damp.
  • Made Technical Lead at 3months
  • Ran a Rails Workshop at Victoria University
  • Worked a lot and posted lots of overtime, outside stuff went down a bit though.
  • Settled on a location and started working on selling tickets for Rails Camp
  • Created a MUD in Node.js for the Node Knockout
  • Resigned from 3months to start Rabid Tech
  • Did the Rails Rumble and created a news aggregator
  • Did some contracting while getting going with Rabid Tech, unfortunately it took up a lot more time than I meant it to and delayed other things.
  • Attended the NZ Open Source Awards - I had code in three different finalists.
  • Gave a talk at Wellrailed on Rspec 2 and TDD - Unfortunately the videoing didn't work.
  • Wrote a novel for Nanowrimo - Lots of editing still to do.

Companies all around the} world now employ 3D printers to create their prototypes in a matter of hours, as an alternative of losing months of time and potentially tens White Bath Sheets of millions of dollars in analysis and growth. In reality, some businesses declare that 3D printers make the prototyping process10 instances quicker and five instances cheaper than the conventional R&D processes. The Binder Jetting course of starts with a re-coater that spreads a thin layer of powder over the build platform. Then, an inkjet nozzle applies a liquid bonding agent that effectively glues the particles of constructing materials collectively, coalescing the various layers collectively to create a solidified part. In simply two years, 3D printing applied sciences have advanced dramatically, and additive manufacturing functions have skyrocketed.
