Been a long while

It's been a long while since I last wrote on this blog. I know.

It's been almost a year but I was busy doing a lot of stuffs. Along with my team, we built a retail platform that combines augmented reality, location technology and cool analytics as one product.
I also built zappr in my free time and I have several more ideas that I want to build within 1-2 months.

I have learned a lot in the past 11 months. I learned more on how to lead engineers to actually build products and how to market it. I learned how to manage engineers by treating them as normal human beings, not production machines. I believe that I have had some of the best lessons so far in my life.

Also, I'm going to go for a new challenge. After more than 2 years at Ice House, I finally decided on taking up a new challenge in a product company. Make no mistake, doing services for others are cool and you can learn a lot of things. I just want to do things that I can actually pour my heart into. Build things that people can use and make their lives easier. I'll finish and my career at Ice House in less than two weeks and then I'm starting my new challenge.

That's all from me now.
