…its amazingly shocking. But also interesting how many crazy facts you still find after hours and hours looking on it.

Double Challenge #2 – Christmas and Scala

It has been a bit more than a month since I ‘ve been writing about the first double challenge. Thus, I think it is time for a short retrospective and a call-out of the next challenges.

Retrospective:

The first double challenge was only half a success. Cutting down meat consumption to three days a week has dramatically reduced my overall meat consumption. It wasn’t easy, but I can absolutely recommend this model (maybe start with two or three meat free days a week). I will defiantly stick with the four meat-less-days-a-week model for a few more months.
The technical challenge on the other hand was not that successful. Unfortunately, I couldn’t really find the time to get an application running on cloud foundry. Well, I got quite far with that (it is quite easy), but finding the time to write a tutorial about it was pretty much impossible. Fortunately, some good tutorials about this topic are already existent.

Upcoming double challenge:

  • Buy all Christmas presents until the end of November. Why? To escape the pre-christmas stress! Man, I hate shopping in December.
  • Work myself through another 250 pages of my beloved Scala book. (And write heaps of Scala code on the way.) Why? Scala! 😉
