Gave a talk to a dev community in Tokyo - OK, it was remote, but it was super exciting to be presenting to the Japanese community again!

Well, it was for my day job, and so it was about the contributions of the developer community in Japan to the Twitter API ecosystem. Some of the most popular libraries and SDKs were built there, so it was a โ€œthank youโ€ and recognition of that community, as part of a large event about Twitter API v2.

Finally sent out some major client deliverables that I've been grinding through for the last month ๐Ÿ˜…

Got back from a rough week long business trip in mid-August and immediately had to dive into back-to-back 14 hour days since then. I'm super keen to ease back into a regular work schedule and get some rest ๐Ÿ˜ด

Our proposal to rebuild the Zend 1 legacy project I took over maintenance of has been approved by the client. We start designing it in Q4 and start building it in Q1 next year. No more horrible spaghetti jQuery, no more awful legacy models or crappy database schema, no more piles of dreadful CSS, and no more being stuck on PHP 7.1.
