Look Back at 2020

I’ve started the blog site from Aug. 2012. So it took over 8 years. And in this year there were more access and comments than last year thanks so much. Here is an page view and visitor count bar chart of the site.

I also surprised that any access from many countries not only Japan but also US, UK, India, Germany, France, Canada, Switzerland etc. etc.

For me, there were many big event. Some of them are listed below ;)

  1. I decided to change my job from medicinal chemist to chemoinformatitian. It was big challenge for me because my career is reset and I should do zero start. I really thank former coworker I could have many great experience with them. Different company has different culture, system, strategy and people. So I could have chance to learn new things.
  2. Due to COVID-19 pandemic, I spend most of my working time at home but it worked well (I think….). Not only work but also conferences done on-line. Remote conference, meeting and work are very efficient way because I don’t need long fright to participate conferences but time difference is problem for me… Sometime I couldn’t get up midnight / early morning. Sharing conference video via you tube, sharing code / slide via github is very useful for every one.
  3. Related topic-2, we held mishima.syk as on line meeting. The style was as same as RDKit-UGM, combination of zoom and discord style worked very well. Thanks for all presenters and participants. I believe that all people could get useful connections and ideas.
  4. Most of time I worked from home so I did running in my lunch time for my health ;) Running time is still slow..

Next year, I would like to learn new language such as Rust, Nim and learn JavaScript. And also I should learn python too.

This is the last post of this year. Thanks for reading.

I want to wish you and your family a beautiful and happy New Year.

  1. I am a PhD student currently in the US and I visited your blog for the first time yesterday because I was trying to do some PBF calculation. Your post was very helpful and I really appreciated it. ありがとうございました
