I've been programming for a long time, and if there's one thing that's helped me learn and develop more than anything else, it's been my peers online. And yet, in all these years of getting some amazing free support and advice, following countless free tutorials, and incorporating some excellent, freely distributed code, I never really thought about giving something back.
Until now. I think I've been a tech-moocher long enough.
My goal here is four-fold:
1. To describe the challenges I face and my methods of overcoming them so as to provide yet another resource for those facing similar problems
2. To showcase cool new projects I'm working on
3. To advocate the latest amazing technology, or whatever else I find amazing at any given moment
4. To try and have fun. And let me emphasize the word try. Blogging has never been a top priority for me, and, for the most part, I find writing exhaustive. But I'm really hoping I learn to enjoy this. And if I don't, you'll know, because this blog will really suck.
