Decided to go out and splurge again, so I signed up for the following online course: Functional Programming in Haskell.

This is an even more serious training for experienced software developers, and I look forward to starting it in September.

Later on I can impress family and friends with such amazing one-liners like this:

pascal = map ([1,1]^) [0..]

which generates the infinite list of rows of Pascal's triangle (yawn).

Paying the extra €69 to get some so-called paper certificate sounds like a waste of money, but I think that it will encourage me to take things more seriously and do my best to complete the grueling course with flying colors.

Wish me luck.

We had a fun and relaxing long weekend in London, the weather was great and we ate out every evening. We must have walked more than 10 miles a day which was good exercise. Our hotel was located right next to Hyde Park, so we could either take a long stroll into town by foot or just hop on the metro at Paddington.

Check out the photo album.

After a dry spell I get to be productive again. I'm pleased to be working on this amazing website as Ruby on Rails Developer in the Collections Development Team.

This is pretty challenging stuff and gives me the chance to work with others on a noble pursuit. Namely:

"Providing a platform that allows you to explore great achievements from the past to achieve great things in the future."
