I cannot believe that I became a blogger on my 30th birthday. The fact is I never wanted to be a blogger, at least not a blogger on .NET programming, which I do everyday at work and at home.
But I guess I was totally convinced to start blogging by Andrew Siemer, who has a .NET development/architecture blog on GeeksWithBlogs and a whole bunch of other stuff going on in the .NET community, and who happens to be working on the same projects with me at work. Well I have to say that the main reason why I started blogging is I do have so many things to share with the community after having been working on .NET for six years and I do look forward to getting to know more geeks like Andrew myself.
Without further ado, I will be primarily blogging my active thoughts on the latest .NET technologies like ASP.NET AJAX, WCF, WPF, LINQ, Entity Framework, MVC, ASP.NET Futures (Extensions 3.5) etc., and of course, anything interesting and .NET related that come across my mind. As I write this introductory post, I have already got at least 4 topics in my mind about the ASP.NET AJAX client-side technology, which has been pretty daunting to a lot of the web developers because of the amount of JS code you have to write. There aren't really many blogs/articles about the client-side ASP.NET AJAX out there on the web. I am going to blog it in 4 installments in about two weeks. Stay tuned :-)
So off I started blogging on .NET. What I am going to writing can be covered by a LINQ query:
IEnumerable<Inspiration> inspirations = from i in InspirationContext where i.Sharable == true select i
