The rest of my personal work was aimed at proof-of-concepts, Project Limitless demo, learning Angular and React as well as Silicon Valley programming challenges – which I passed with great feedback.
In my professional work I had more web work than I would have liked – which resulted in a lot of PHP being written using Yii. Most of the systems-related work was again done in Go which has grown a lot since we first switched two years ago. I’m really looking forward to the 1.8 release next month. Python was used for working with serverless AWS Lambda functions.
You can find all the open source code on my GitHub.

Back in 2013 I played around with the idea of putting together my own J.A.R.V.I.S, but at that time I was also involved with my own start-up, Cirqls, and I never really got very far…
Fast-forward to 2016 and I have some spare time again (mainly between 10pm and 1am) as well as some daily tasks that I want automated. So I decided to revisit my old ideas and see what new technologies could support such a system. Turns out my old ideas were exactly that, old. After a couple of days thinking about the architecture I finally started working on it.
The main goal of what I call ‘Project Limitless‘ is to build a platform for naturally controlling all the technology around you.
For now, enjoy the introduction video, the rest will follow soon…
It was a busy 2015, got into many new front-end technologies and I was really impressed with how much (and fast) things have changed since 2014.
Personally, the highlight for me, from a systems view, was digging deeper in Google’s Go language. Most of my professional time was spent in the language and it is now my go-to language, which in 2014 was Python.
On the web side of things, PHP was still my go-to language, using the Yii Framework. Yii still allows me to work really fast and get the proof-of-concepts and projects done on time. For my personal site, I updated it using Google’s Polymer to get a feel for web components. Web components, for me, is one of those technologies that I can’t believe took so long to be developed, it just makes perfect sense – at least to most object oriented programmers.
I’ve combined all my code from 2015 into an infographic, just a nice summary of where I spent my time. Below is an image, but the full page can be found here.
