Apps World

At the end of November I went to Apps World in London to represent my (currently former) company - STX Next. There were presentations on various technical things (which I couldn't really attend, because of my stand duties), but also hundreds of exhibitors showing what they were working on. In my spare time I managed to walk around a bit and talk to the ones that seemed the most interesting. I took their cards as well, so I'll try to follow up with them and ask some questions. Expect new interviews on the blog soon.

As to my new job, I'd like to write more on it in the near future, but perhaps when I get a better grasp on what it's like in there.

Unfortunately, my Blobby Volley Unity remake got stuck because I don't have enough time for it. What I want to do first is update my Milan Metro app, because it brings in the most income and the map is getting more and more out of date. I'm also losing track of my earnings, so perhaps it's time I reviewed them and posted another income report.

I really need to find a way to work on my Android projects more, but I find it very difficult. It's not that I'm procrastinating or anything, but I want to be able to do non computer related stuff as well (like my Italian lessons or sports). I also travel a lot or visit my friends/family in the weekends quite often. This leaves me around 10h/week of available time, which is very little, and I'm usually almost too tired to think anyway. Perhaps I'm trying to do too many things at a time?

What's your view on it? How are you managing to squeeze in extra time for your own projects? Is it even possible with a full time job and extra activities? Should I give up on something? I don't know what to think any more...


  1. Bartek, there are just not enough hours in the day for you to do it all. If you want to work on your personal projects you will have to sacrifice something else.

    Congrats on your new job :)

    1. Yeah, but what do you think I should sacrifice?
