I usually put a fair amount of effort into recapping the year in all things AppsLab, but this year, I don’t really feel like it.
Oh, and Rich (@rmanalan) accidentally nuked our Google Analytics data earlier in the year. No biggie, we don’t drive much traffic anyway.
One interesting note is that my post about how to take a screenshot in Android had nearly 7,000 pageviews since June. For perspective, the pageview champs from 2009 and 2008 had fewer than 4,000. The champ in 2007 had fewer than 5,000.
Lessons: mobile is white hot and how-to content drives pageviews.
Anyway, here we are again at the end of another year, and we’re still a team, minus one member anyway. Pour some out for Paul (@ppedrazzi) who left us back in July.
When we started this ride, I thought we’d be lucky to have a three-year run. However, here we are motoring along, heading into a fourth year of doing whatever it is you think we do.
But seriously, we’ve been with WebCenter (@oraclewebcenter) development for more than a year now, and we’re busy cooking up cool new stuff that I hope to talk about in 2011.
Although our abstract didn’t make the initial cut for KScope 11 (June in Long Beach), I’m hoping the committee will give our session another look. Please? We clean up real nice, and our fans travel.
As usual, there’s a good chance we’ll get a session at OOW 11 (October in San Francisco), and we should have a pretty interesting topic. Stay tuned.
Otherwise, we’ll be at a few conferences, attending some, possibly speaking. I’ll let you know.
Poking around in the blog administration, I noticed that I’ve posted well over 1,000 times. Rich, the number two author, has posted 104 times.
So, I’m determined to vary the content. This has never been my blog exclusively, or it wasn’t supposed to be anyway.
Don’t worry though. I’ve got a guest post lined up for right after New Year that I hope you’ll enjoy, and if you work for Oracle and want a soapbox, hit me up in the comments or by email.
That’s about it. Now, reflect fondly on the year that was and gear up for another crazy one in 2011. Haven’t decided if I’ll do a predictions post for 2011. What do you think?
Anyway, thanks for reading. Rock on.
