2019

Time for the next personal retrospective. I’m going to play with the format.

2019 was a rather quiet and uneventful year.

Travels

It’s not a priority anymore but I traveled internationally.

I traveled both nationally and internationally for Round Table, not necessarily all in my function as President (until February) and Past-President (from March on) of my table, RT 233:

I’m proud and happy that my ideas and work contributed to several thousand euros in donations for Round Table charity. “On fire for tabling.”

RTIWM 2019.

Figure: We didn’t know what to expect in Transylvania.

Some of the journeys I made with my girlfriend, Beatriz, with whom I moved in together in August, right into the heart of Hamburg. That was an important step for us, I look forward to the next one, and I love you, Beatriz.

Trainings

I made trainings and activities a bigger priority again. (If you just get to know me, I love trying things, and I try everything.)

I do love trying things and have a few plans for 2020.

Writings

I wrote.

Statistics

I did other things:

This may do.

❧ It was a good year. I extend cordial wishes to you and your loved ones for the brief remainder of 2019, and wish you all the best for 2020. Be in touch.

About Me

Jens Oliver Meiert, on September 30, 2021.

I’m Jens (long: Jens Oliver Meiert), and I’m a frontend engineering leader and tech author/publisher. I’ve worked as a technical lead for companies like Google and as an engineering manager for companies like Miro, I’m close to W3C and WHATWG, and I write and review books for O’Reilly and Frontend Dogma.

I love trying things, not only in web development (and engineering management), but also in other areas like philosophy. Here on meiert.com I share some of my views and experiences.

If you want to do me a favor, interpret charitably (I speak three languages, and they can collide), yet be critical and give feedback for me to learn and improve. Thank you!
