@humdrum thank you!! Can't believe I made it the entire year for song-a-day -- I usually give up on those kind of challenges. It ended up being a really great experience, though, and I will probably do again. Have any fave albums from '22?

@odd I've used both Go and Flutter for things. I haven't used them in the same project, and I'm not sure how one could (unless we're talking about Go for the backend and Flutter for the mobile app).

I can't say enough good things about Go for something that runs in the terminal, or a web-app, or maybe even a GUI app. I'm a massive fan of the language and use it in my day job and side projects. There's a tour of the language which runs in the browser which I'd recommend if you're interested in learning the language.

I've used Flutter for a few small mobile apps that I've written for myself, although nothing serious as yet. Flutter uses Dart, which is not my favourite language, but it works, and I would recommend it if you're interested in building mobile apps for both Android or iOS.

If you're interested in either one, please feel free to ask any questions you may have about them. I'd be more than happy to help you out. 😊

@Gaby IPAs all day for me. In winter, love a porter or a stout. Don't think I've tried a barley wine... Hmmm.

@Annie love stouts, again, even better if they are barrel aged, porters are too, Smokey? Or like a tobacco flavor like, at the end. Barley wines are like a dessert for me, they can be sweet and you can definitely taste some of the alcohol in them.

@Gaby I think the smokey aspect is what I like most about porters.

Definitely picking up some barley wine this weekend. Any recommendations?

@Annie well, a favorite of mine is Old Devil’s Tooth Barleywine by Sockeye brewing but that a local one. Bigfoot Barleywine-Style Ale by Sierra Nevada is another good one, not sure if you can find their beers where you are. I’d definitely try any that’s available to you, specially if it’s local, and above 9 ABV for sure 😅 (which most of them are)

@lmika Thank you for your resource tips and offers! I looked at the Udemy course that I have already purchased (a while ago), and it’s Flutter with Dart, and not Go, as I obviously misremembered it. The project will be to make an iOS app and an Android app for a web forum that already have an API, so I was thinking either Xamarin, or Flutter/Dart.

@humdrum awesome start! Followed your playlist. For mine, it basically came down to a few different things: a song I listened to during the day, a song to represent something that i did (like going to a concert), or a song that was meaningful for other reasons (like my mom’s favorite song; she passed away last year.)
