A New Beginning

It’s the end of 2016 and I feel the strong urge to start a new blog. Recently, my life has changed significantly. I got seriously ill this summer. Of course my top priority is to completely recover until early 2017. But besides that I have a lot of time to spend on reading, researching, developing and writing about my favorite tech topics. So, this time the topic of the blog is strictly tech and nerd stuff. Nothing else! I also decided to write in English in order to strengthen my English writing skills. And apparently you have to deal with it.

So far I have planned some posts about Hammerspoon, machine learning and data science with Python, Cookiecutter for Django and some book reviews. We will see what I can accomplish.
