It's been a while since you've heard from me!
Let me start by apologizing for the extremely spammy sounding subject line. I simply couldn’t come up with a better one. After all, it has been a while since you’ve heard from me. To be more exact, I’ve sent my last newsletter on June 25 2021. In that newsletter I wrote about my first week as a self-employed engineer, and how I loved having more freedom.
After sending that newsletter edition I’ve been busy. Like, really busy. I’ve been doing a lot of client work for example. Much more than I had anticipated in the beginning. I’ve worked with clients like Soundcloud, Backbase, and SiteScape. I’ve hosted lots of workshops, and even though it’s been a lot, I’m loving every minute of this all.
However, neglecting my newsletter started eating away at me. I’ve thought about picking it back up, but then I figured it would be weird to send you an email weeks, or months after the last one. But now that it’s been a year I decided I should go ahead and do it. See if I can make this newsletter a weekly occurence again.
Since you last heard from me I became a dad! We were lucky enough to have an amazingly cute, healthy little dude named Oliver. He was born on April 15th of 2022 so he’s about 2.5 months old right now.
So what’s my goal with restarting my newsletter? What can you expect from me?
Well… I kind of want to keep things up as they were before. This newsletter is a more personal touch to what I do. I won’t be writing any thoughtful, spicy, or insightful takes on recent events here unless I really want to. I won’t be summarizing WWDC or other Apple events unless something really jumped out. It’s just me sharing what I feel like sharing.
This newsletter is just your window into my live as an engineer. Maybe it inspires you, maybe it doesn’t. Let’s see what happens.
For now, it feels good to be preparing this newsletter for y’all.
