In other words, I need to tell you which languages and frameworks I currently make my living off of and will be blogging about. And I would like to do so without trying to intentionally fan the flames of ......

Hello. My name is Mark and this is my first blog entry. I took my first steps in the early 1980s when my father brought home the Commodore 64 followed very shortly by the Osborne Executive. I was hooked. Since then, I have never been without at least one computer. As a result, I pursued a career in Information Technology with the explicit focus of building ......
