Darn you nodes (-and TreeView)

Yesterday we had about the Treeview class and nodes, and I didn’t quite get it. I was insanely frustrated as I spent several hours just staring at the code on the projector screen without really feeling that I could replicate the code- or understand. Of well, give me a few days and I will master […]

Downhill ride last night

Went for a short one-hour downhill yesterday after school, but it was getting pretty dark so we kept it short. Here is a night shoot of me on the beach with my lovely B1, full gear on. Love life, live life.

A good look for me?

What do you think, is this a good look for me? Finally purchased a new helmet- a full face one – as well as some more protection gear. I was pretty bruised up from the last ride, and I don’t want to ride without protection gear as it is a gamble. I asked at the […]

IT lunch

Today I went to the ‘It lunch’, an interesting event where people from the IT sector meet up to mingle. The lunch itself was at Avenyn Ett, a beautiful place and we were fortunate to have our lunch served in the striking ‘goldroom’. Niklas Danell (product manager Microsoft Office 365) and Henrik Garpendahl introduced and […]

Cat confidant

My husband is away on another business trip, but this time I have a cat that will keep me company. (Cat-sitting for two weeks). She is really odd, when I try to read and relax she insists on getting all my attention (otherwise she pretty much ignores me). Problem is, as soon as I pet […]

Run Iris Run! Stockholm Marathon 2012…

Yes that’s right. Next year I am going to run my first marathon! I wanted to do one this year, but with the slow recovery from my heel inflammation I decided to only do a half marathon. Well, that went pretty good and therefore I decided to run Stockholm Marathon 2012, plus a half marathon […]

Saturday dinner

Earlier today a friend of mine, Marcus (a fellow dietitian), came and visited. I cooked up some Spanish omelet, baked some whole grain scones, and served it all with warm chili and tomato soup.

Breakfast meeting: The agile roadmap

Sorry for not writing earlier, it has been hectic! Yesterday I went to an early morning breakfast meeting to learn more about agile project management, and afterwards it was straight to school. Half the class came in, even though we had no lectures, and most of us sat there until 4-5 in the afternoon. My […]

Beachvolley with the school

Self-explanatory title. I am dead tired so this blog entry will be short. Here are some photos from the beachvolley with the school yesterday. Had a good time with fun people, a lot of laughter and a lot of sweat. I really like the people in my class and I am looking forward spending the […]

Last day of summer?

I woke up late today. Last night we went to say hi to a friend of mine that was working a night shift at a camping site nearby. So when I woke up at 12 today my head was ready to burst and I had and still have a really bad migraine. But outside the […]

Iris' Awesome Zoo

Mikael, the teacher, has given us an assignment that is due tuesday. We have to code our very own Zoo, and practise on using inheritance- one of the key cornerstones of object oriented programming. Of course I will have to get comfortable with abstract classes and interface, and after a day of brainstorming and reading […]

Homemade muesli, fireplace and studying

Daniel got viciously ill yesterday while away on a day business trip. I felt so sorry for him, and I was very worried all day. He threw up all day, so for breakfast today when he was starving I made my must-have-heaven-home-made-muesli. He doesn’t get sick often, and thankfully it never lasts long either. Nonetheless […]

Day 10 640 days left: No, I honestly don’t get it. Bambi on ice

I always wondered why you only hear about the great. Honestly, few people tell about their struggles- those that do complain so much that you become deaf to their thoughts and feelings on that particular subject. But stories about the great survive. I’ve never heard about a programmer struggling. But logically everybody must have, at […]
