Weekly review: Week ending November 25, 2011

We’re getting ready to launch a big project, so I’ve been working overtime. The Ruby on Rails system is coming along well, and our demo on Thursday went wonderfully. Although I’m torn between spending extra time on that versus other projects (Quantified Awesome or the Lotus Connections toolkit, for example), I’m learning a lot and I want clients to be delighted, so it’s okay for now.

I had a lot of fun at the Rails Pub Nite on Monday. It turns out that I know many people in the Rails scene, and I enjoyed hanging out with them.

A couple of weeks of crunch, and then life should be back to normal-ish.
