Over the last few months I’ve taken on several speaking and workshop engagements, and they’ve started to take their toll on me. Coming up with a presentation, practicing that, and trying to fit all that work in to my schedule has become increaseingly difficult. With winter coming and other family activities (skiing, etc) coming up, I’ve decided to take a break on some of the extras that I’ve enjoyed doing. I’ll no longer be speaking or doing much work on my open source projects either (but feel free to send PRs!!). I need to take this time to focus on other things for a while.
