What I’m Up To Now

Last updated on August 15, 2017.

I’ve been in Stockholm for four months

I accepted a job offer from Spotify as the embedded (C/C++) SDK product manager. My first day was in late June.

Arthur and I have hosted friends and family in our guest bedroom all summer long. We love being able to share our new home and city with people we miss dearly.

Barry’s Bootcamp is opening a location in Stockholm in September. I was a huge fan of the gym in San Francisco, so I signed up for 50 classes.

Arthur bought a bicycle and he is now cycling the city with me.

Since the last update

I made my first Firefox extension (Page Translator) using the new WebExtensions API because none of the language translation browser extensions worked the way I wanted. It now has a 5 star average review rating and nearly 3,000 people using it.

I became an uncle-in-law. I really like being an uncle.

I lost one of my best friends, Mark Fish, to cancer. Arthur and I are visiting San Francisco briefly in September for his funeral.

My 3 goals over the next 90 days

  1. Prepare my talk for API Strategy & Practice in Portland and Nordic APIs Platform Summit in Stockholm.
  2. Use Headspace daily.
  3. Learn Swedish using Babbel.
