A blog about me, my doings and everything I think deserves attention.

need for progress

Recently I read a very nice article, while looking for some beginner jQuery tutorials as inspiration for some beginner lessons. To quote it a little:

Hackers Thrive on Progress
The biggest way to interest a hacker beyond money is through providing opportunities to progress in skills. Hackers need progress daily

Now, I do not claim to be a hacker and the general misperception of the word shall also not be brought at this point.
I just identify myself with the urge of learning and since I’ve been confronted with IT in general or specificly coding, photography and retouch this has gotten a lot more intense. That’s also one of the reasons why I put my thoughts out here, on my blog. I would like to influence and inform, because what I don’t write about what I don’t know about, or even to have some intellectual exchange (which happens far too little (that means please comment, flame, bash, hype)).
Something else I want to show you is a peek at Kendra Schaefers portfolio. This is her current front and I find it completely awesome. To take a picture of you in some kind of coma-state of mind, pointing out the opposite of your daily self and thereby motivating people to hire you. To tell people that it is a driving force in your life.

Right now I’m also planning to apply as a freelance ressource to a couple of companies, besides I’m also trying to find an internship, so I’m involved with the thought how I should approach them. So far I’m pretty fine with the idea, that I NEED TO LEARN (notice the emphasis) and that I think the companies I contact are a good choice for me and vice versa. Though I’ll not go as far as building a webproject and wear a mustache for a company to recognise me, like this guy: googlepleasehire.me.

Right now I’m in a workshop about SCRUM at NoMA, where productivity bundled with the ability to adopt to changing circumstances, which I will try to implement as much as possible to my workflow in projects with co-students, clients and maybe even to organize my private tasks. For everybody wondering why you should waste time on planning, I will just point you to the article at the smashing magazine Lessons Learned: Productivity Tips For Running A Web Design Business by Paul Boag.

Status August 13th 2011

Hey folks, I’ve been coding a little lately so this time you get my status update within a PHP array, isn’t that something for a change?

<!--?php $status = array( 	'Last Weekend' =----> 'Wedding shoot, still cutting video footage and speeches, pictures will be online soon',

	'My Portfolio' => 'Will launch today, spend a lot of time putting photos from my old portfolio and this blog in there (plus translating a lot of the posts, trilingualism coming up!)',

	'next Monday (15th)' => 'My third semester at NoMA starts',

	'Drupal' => 'I build my new portfolio with it, pretty powerful CMS',

	'This Blog' => 'I have been far too short on time to spend time here, will change.',

	'Greetings' => 'To everybody out there.'

	'Weddings' => '2 shootings coming up.'
);
?>

So what still is missing on my portfolio:

  1. an appropriate About Me page
  2. some localisation issues (the content is fully trilingual, yay for me!)
  3. some work on the backend
  4. work on design (there is always room for improvement)

So if you’re as curious for my new portfolio as I am for your reactions, click the link

[de]Zum wiederholten Male: Schularbeiten. Letzten Freitag bis 12:00 hatten wir Zeit um unser Portfolio samt Bericht darüber mit ca 24.000 Anschlägen abzugeben. Hier möchte ich nun einmal zeigen was ich bis jetzt fertig gebracht habe (Ja, es kommt mehr Inhalt und dort öfter vorbei zu schauen wird sich lohnen.;)) Achja, dieses Blog wird NICHT STERBEN! Hier wird es weiter die ganzen Posts geben die nicht auf mein Portfolio gehören.[/de]

[en]Again, schoolwork. Last Friday until 12:00 we had to hand in our portfolio and a report with about 24.000 strokes. Here I want to show everybody what I did so far (I’ll of course add more content and it would pay off to either follow or take a look once a while ;)). I also want to tell you, that this blog will NOT DIE! I will keep this running and as you have seen before, not all the posts here would do so great on my portfolio.[/en]
