Has been a while hasn’t it? You must been thinking I was quitting the podcast and the blog completely, especially now that I have “real job”(to be honest I did hear it from some friends). But I have been thinking about this and I feel like it is the time to come back.
Where have I been?
If you have been following me on Twitter, you would probably are already fairly up to date with my life. If not, here’s a quick recap. I started my new job as a full-time software engineer at Google London last September, and it has been the major focus of my life for the last few months.

It was quite challenging during the first 3 months, even with all the experience I had as an intern. We had a tight deadline for the first project, and I eventually made it by 2 days. After that I had a couple more projects to work on and now work has steadied up a bit. If you want me to discuss more about my work, either as a blog post or episode, please let me know!
Apart from that, I have been continuously working on TryLinks, albeit in a smaller capacity. We were extremely to be accepted by the ProWeb conference, and I recently went to Italy to give a talk.

TryLinks was originally just my final project, but it has lived on much longer than I expected. Even better, it is still being worked on to add more and more features. Therefore, I am taking on a side project for TryLinks in the coming weeks!
Since I am taking on the TryLinks side project, it would be a perfect opportunity to do another series for the blog. I am still ironing out the detail, but the project should be kicking off around late April. In terms of the blog, I want to commit to a 2-posts-per-week schedule, so that I won’t slack off.
As for non-technical topics, my old backlog has been a bit dated, and I don’t think I can produce quality content on them. Also, I am thinking about moving the non-technical topics to the podcast, since it would be better to have discussions on them. Bottom line is, I am holding off non-technical blog posts for now. If you think there’s a topic you want see, feel free to let me know.
I started the Compile Podcast last summer, partially because I listen to a lot of podcasts myself and really wanted to try it, and secondly it would be great as another platform for content. So far we only have a couple of episodes and I have not scheduled any new recordings. But this year I do want to keep doing it, and meet more and more people!
My recording setup
In terms of plans, I do have still a few recordings in mind. Also, the topic backlog is still long enough for cover most of the year. One thing that I am looking for is a regular co-host. If you are interested, please let me know!!
Where to look for from now on?
