Looking Forward, Streamhead in 2011

The end of the year is not only a time to look back, but also forward. Read on for what’s in store for Streamhead. It’s going to be a great year, so make sure you don’t miss a post. If you become a Facebook fan, you not only get the latest posts, but also a bunch of supremely interesting links. Or if you prefer to receive the posts by mail, use the field just below this post. And of course, there’s always the feed to bend Streamhead to your every wish.

But enough about that, let’s get to the plans.

In general, I’m pretty happy with the more technical direction Streamhead took. I plan to continue in the same direction, and would like to revisit a few older posts in this new light. So you can expect more code samples, more experiments and more tutorials, combined with the latest and most interesting news and articles.

HTML5, CSS3 and co

Oh yes, you can expect lots more web 2.0 posts (or are we at v3 already?). JavaScript will definitely return into the picture and probably a good deal of ActionScript. As always I’ll be on the lookout for new maturing technology both on client and server.

I personally really liked my latest post on the Io language in this regard. I hope to write more like those.

Mobile

There’s no escaping. Mobile devices are here and they are here to stay. While I have done some very small experiments with Android and mobile websites, next year is the year I’m really investing time in applications for the small screen. And you’ll be in the front row seat.

Online Marketing

Don’t worry, this blog isn’t going to turn into a get-rich-quick scheme. With the launch and ongoing development of my own web application, I did notice I’m missing some important knowledge. I’m thinking of Search Engine Optimization (SEO), traffic analysis, conversion tracking, etc. for normal people.

Game Modding

You might have noticed by my frequent posts on gaming, I love to play a game from time to time. Back in the days I enjoyed adapting the game and its mechanics. Known as modding. It’s a great way to learn a wide range of different disciplines. 3D, artificial intelligence, new languages, etc. So I’d like to get back into that. We’ll see how that goes.

Have a great 2011!
