Hello dear visitor. This will officially be my first blog post. I know, not that exciting, but I have been posting a bit on our internal blogs for the past few months, sort of getting my feet wet. But I decided it was time to take my posting to a larger audience. Not that the world has been missing what I have been saying, but because I want to get more feedback from the software engineering community at large.
For years, I have been following and admiring Jeff Atwood from his Coding Horror days to Stack Overflow. On multiple occasions, he reminded us that sometimes, you just need to get out there, and get started. You won’t be an internet superstar overnight, but overnight success does not happen overnight. That goes for writing software, to writing blogs and many other aspects of our lives. And recently, my coworker Shawn Kendrot decided to take that step also and start blogging to the world on Visually Located. I actually borrowed his disclaimer.
To get started, I am going take a very, very small page out of Martin Fowler’s book and retread my internal post to the public. They will be edited to match the audience and to avoid releasing any proprietary information. I look forward to your feedback and hope you will come back and visit often.
