After a nice opportunity to travel Canada and the US for 3 months, me and Marie are back in Brisbane. We got to see great parts of Canada and some great and (not so great) parts of the United States as well.
While I was in the US, I had the opportunity to work with a great team on a VOD platform similar to Netflix (but seriously, a million times better). It functioned well, looked great and literally would have blown competitors out of the water.
Sadly the project was terminated and my contract came to an end, but it was a fun few months. I have made a few friends out of the experience and have no doubt we will end up working together on something soon.
AngularJS and React.js were used quite extensively and the front-end layer was powered by Node.js. It was basically a dream project to work on for any front-end developer. No legacy code in sight. Everything was new and shiny, it was the kind of job you would never want to end.
So, now I am back in Brisbane again. Who knows where the road will take me, as long as it isn’t into head on traffic, I am sure the destination will be awesome.
