I’m a person who enjoys mentoring other developers. I take great personal joy and satisfaction from seeing their successes. Over the years I’ve had people ask if I have a blog. When I answered no they tell me that I should have one. Generally speaking I’ve pooh-poohed them and went my merry way. In this post I want to discuss the reason I started blogging.
I recently had a scenario come up where the client I’m working for wanted a countdown timer on their homepage. I had previously built a similar feature in their old website but did not reproduce it when we built the new site. The old website was a hybrid ASP.NET MVC + Razor views + jQuery + angularJS.
I have no experience with Linux. That’s zilch, nada, zero. However, in all my infinite wisdom and glory I decided that as an exercise towards learning it and to set up my blog I’d just go ahead and give it a try. Recording my experience here seemed liked a good idea for posterity sake.
This is an obligatory “Hello World” post seeing as I’m a developer. My intention is to post weekly about programming topics: what I’m working on, what I’ve discovered, and where I’m going. I’m hoping that this will serve as a resource for others as much as an archive for me. Learn more about me.
