Now I am in a lucky position where I can, for a while, do the projects that I want. Bwahahahaa, I am the master of my universe!
As you read this, I'm building a nice little web application with Vaadin, working against Cassandra DB. My main focus is to update my skills to the web and do that as fast as possible.
So, from now on you will no longer be hearing stories of the challenges with large code-bases. What you will get, I have no idea. And I am definitely not going to change my habits, so my updates will be as non-regular as before.
