I went on a programming pilgrimage to visit twelve companies in San Francisco in fourteen days. And now, one year after the 1Up project began, I found an apartment and moved to SF. Crazy year.
So what's next? When I look at the city skyline I get excited. It's packed with people busy inventing the future of technology. Being here somehow increases the pressure to make something great. Geography is now no excuse, my success or failure is all up to me. Some people I meet here are brain-meltingly smart, and sometimes it feels difficult to even keep up, much less stand out. I need to plan ahead and and be tenacious to have a chance.
So here's my new one year goal: become an expert Haskell hacker, contribute to their coolest libraries, and build a real Bendyworks client web app using the Haskell stack.
And write about my progress every. damn. day.
Visit the blog tomorrow to see my first step.
