Hi, well it’s been 6+ years since I’ve updated my website and I’ve finally decided it was time to do something about it. Over the last 6 years it’s been a fun ride let me tell you, I did some freelancing until of course the economy tanked and of course I panicked and decided it would be best to find full-time work here in town. I landed a job at PIPAC in Cedar Falls (they were actually a client I had) but they decided they needed to invest more into the web and hired me full-time. It was a worthwhile experience, I got to work with some really great people and faced new challenges.
While working there I was forced (well not forced) but to learn ASP.NET, while I’m still not 100% fan of ASP.NET it was still a good learning experience. One thing I did learn though was that I still prefer hand coding the ASP rather than using Micro$ofts Visual Studio. I felt that the code that Visual Studio produced not only was the code not readable, it was downright ugly. I still prefer code that is produced from a human rather than some over priced software that only limits you to use the components they created. And don’t get me started on MSDN’s documentations and the various versions and languages ASP.NET uses, what a headache :| but I made through it .
Since this is really my first blog post well more of a blog rant, I am going to start writing more. Something that I’ve always wanted to do but didn’t have the time (well that and my writing skills are way below par but that’s another rant). I am going to start blogging more about techniques I use, best practices as well as random articles that I read and find beneficial to you. So stay tuned!
