The basic premise of the book is changing how you look at situations and how to ask the right questions to solve the problem. My situation was that I wanted to become a “cracker jack” developer but had a load of excuses why I couldn’t learn ......

July 5th... This feels like a good day to start my blog with Geekswithblogs.net! My name is Zac Harlan and I am a software developer with a drive to turn my occupation into my craft. I started off with .net being a windows forms, control junkie... a drag and drop man... a "see how fast I can make a site that works" man. No more. I've committed myself ......
