What Will I Learn in 2016

So, 2016 is here, I know it’s pretty late to post this sort of thing now (it’s 26th January!), but I think I need an extra motivation by writing down a reminder that’s publicly accessible. Anyway, this year I’m running full steam, working on 2 business that I co-founded. One is at Labtek Indie, an R&D company and the second one is at Framework, a company that provides IT development related courses and workshops.

With those in mind, it’s natural then for me to upgrade my skill to stay sharp in today’s era of fast moving tech. I decided to set up a short list of things to learn, so that I can master them without having to overwhelm me. Here they are:

  • Clojure. Because Labtek Indie will do a lot of rapid prototyping and after some tests and suggestions from close friend, REPL in functional paradigm will suit this. Moreover, learning a new way in thinking programmatically should benefit me., especially when crunching data in…
  • Machine learning. I suspect that this skill will help a lot of business and knowing this won’t hurt. Plus, I think it can leverage my computer vision skill. Also, I need more targeted algorithm training.
  • Meteor. Again, after running through the tutorial, I’m pretty convinced that this tool could help me rapidly build app.
  • Various front end skills. I need to keep up while brushing up on this.

I think those three should keep me in company throughout the year. I also keep a list of secret projects that could be helpful in applying those newly acquired knowledge.

Oh, and on the other hand, as a business owner, I owe myself to learn more about business, whether it’s through books or courses. So, this year is gonna be packed.

Bring it on 2016!
