For this 1st blog post I wanted to speak a little to what I want to accomplish on this blog, and some of my thoughts on software development. Therefore there will be no code in this post, so IF you don't want to read this THEN proceed to the next post. ;-)
This industry more than most can humble one's opinion of how much they think they know, quickly by doing a quick search of the latest technology, architecture, design pattern, etc. and realizing you can't know it all. But this very fact is also one of the best parts of the industry as well; there is always more to know and another challenge around the corner. I guess that is why now more than ever I am so engaged in creating applications, writing code, and learning something new every day.
In this process of becoming a more seasoned developer I believe it is important to know that someone will always know more than I do (young and old), and it is OK to be wrong (hopefully not a lot, but hey it happens). This is one important way to become better in what we do; learn from our mistakes and grow from them.
With those thoughts laid out, I hope to contribute some nice posts here, and I encourage good discussion so please feel free to chime in or contact me with any questions. And away we go....
