It’s been a while.

It’s a been a while since I posted. What’s up?

I’ve been working on a ton of stuff, and learning 10 new platforms it feels like. There’s a lot of excitement out there in both mobile development and HTML5 spaces. I’ve been deep diving into WordPress, learning CoffeeScript and TypeScript (I even started a Backbone.js implementation in TypeScript and called it CruddyMVC, but I didn’t get far, just the model, and I need to back port some ideas I implemented in a PHP/WordPress version of the same), node.js (even got my first bit of node.js code out in the wild just yesterday), and recently Xamarin, which looks like a great replacement for Flash and AIR for mobile apps (even without Playscript and Zynga’s AS3 language bindings, though those are pretty nice to have). I think I’ll even throw together a video sharing app using Xamarin, and a node.js server, cause that sounds like a great way to spend my nights and weekends. I might even dig back into unBrix (here’s the even less feature complete Android version). I have some ideas on how to keep the late game from getting boring, and it really could use some more features and, you know, levels.

I’ve got some fun things to post on WordPress dev (been doing a lot of WordPress and Backbone.js at work), and some tools I made like OnceForm (make sure to checkout the redux branch), that adcSTUDIO contributed to open source under GPL (I wrote a giant intro post for that a couple of weeks ago, but then Firefox crashed…).

Anywho, just wanted to post .. something. So here it is. I’ll try to post more often about some of this stuff, there’s a lot to talk about!

I'm the lead developer at adcSTUDIO located in Kingston NY (in Livingston Manor NY before that). I do all kinds of things there, from robust server side work to the much more enjoyable client side development in HTML/JavaScript/Flash (RIAs, HTML5, etc.) and all the other tech-buzz-phrases of the moment. My brother came up with the idea for unFocus.com which was originally meant be a place to discuss and blog about whatever topics we both found interesting, from politics to technology, to art and design. Time was scarce, and I need a place to host History Keeper, and unFocus Projects - a sub focus of unfocus.com was born, and eventually migrated to the font page. Oh, and I'm on Twitter (@Touvan) and Google+.
