I was going to end this blog one year ago.
Prog21 was entirely a personal outlet for the more technical ideas kicking around in my head, and it had run its course. Just before Christmas 2010, I sat down and wrote a final “thanks for reading,” essay. I’ve still got it on my MacBook. But instead of posting it, I dashed off Write Code Like You Just Learned How to Program, and the response made me realize my initial plan may have been too hasty.
In 2011 I posted more articles than in any previous year—thirty-two, including this one. I finally gave the site a much needed visual makeover. And I’m still wrestling with how to balance the more hardcore software engineering topics that I initially wrote about with the softer, less techy issues that I’ve gotten more interested in.
Have a great 2012, everyone!
