I’ve typically used my blog either as a sounding board for things I’d like to see changed in a product I used to work on (nothing says fix-it like a post showing how to do something someone says cannot be done) or just random postings.
Well… I’d like that to change. I’ve got a lot of cruft up in this old brain of mine and it’s time to post some of that in hopes that others may find it useful, or maybe just amusing at the very least.
I’ve forgotten how fun dynamic languages are. Having spent most of my time in C# or C++ in the past few years, it’s freeing to be able to spend a significant amount of time in a language where I don’t have to come up with a class, where if I need a function to do something I can just create it inline and pass it around like a normal variable, or where parsing a string doesn’t take 10 lines of code… yeah, I’m looking at C++!
Anyway, the point is that I’ll be blocking off some time every week to two to write up a blog about something helpful that I learned, most likely pertaining to some problem I’ve faced, in hopes that some other poor sap won’t have to go through the same ordeal I have but can use my solution and move on to solving his/her real problem at hand.
See you soon!
