Well, hey there you poor unsuspecting folks out there?! That's right. I made a blog ( I know what your thinking.. and yes they do let just anybody get one now adays...). I'm now a completely one of a .. million developers out there who have blogs! Yay Me! On a more serious note, I'm going to answer a few questions:
Why Did I Create a Blog?
Why not? And also, cause I figured it's a good way to force people to hear my opinions on stuff <insert evil laugh here>. I think it's also a good way to get my name out there, and to have a little fun in my spare time.
What Am I Gonna Blog About?
Seriously? I don't think anyone really knows the answer to this question, but let's start off by bloggin' about me, and who I am. Then we can get into the less lame/boring stuff and start discussing design patterns, and gamma theories and such interesting geek stuff.
INTERMISSION RANT: OK, seriously, I really detest the HTML output by these WYSIWYG editers... honestly, I'm horrified.. since when does every time I hit enter mean put in a <p> <p> into the page? Wouldn't a simple <br /> be sufficient?
Who am I?
That's a good question, I'm a lot of things, late for dinner is definitely not one of them <pause for expected groan at lousy pun, Kelly, never you mind, it's my blog, I bad pun if I want to bad pun XD>. By day, I'm a mild mannered developer, working at DMT, building' .NET apps, and SQL Reports. By night, I'm a Ubuntu fiend, cruising' around my php and python code. Lately my major focus has been directed to SQL Server Reporting services (yeah, work stuff always seems to invade my study time....).
I've been a software developer officially for almost 2 years, but I've been programming since around the time I was in grade 8, when I tinkered with Pascal on my beastly Tandy 2500 machine (I still say Microsoft should have quit at Windows 3.1...), all my professional experience though is in .NET.
POINTLESS INTERMISSION RANT: Yeah I know I already ranted about the WYSIWYG Editor, but another thing, how come these things never seem to have syntax highlighting in source view? I mean I know HTML is a complex language...
Actually, that's about all I really have to say about me, if you want to know more, then ask. <cough>* stalker *</cough>
