Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start writing!
Hey there! The fresh install of WordPress came seeded w/ this post, and I’m keeping it since the title is so relevant to the world of software that I will be writing about.
It actually took me a while to decide on WordPress as my blogging platform because I kept thinking, “Man, I’m a developer. I should write my own or use something I can tinker with and really make unique.” At first the decision sorta felt like a cop-out to use the platform that appealed to a lot of non-technical folks, but I decided that the focus of this site will be documenting my experience with software, not a software implementation.
So this is where I’ll be sharing my struggles, tips, gotchas, and deep thoughts (shout-out to Jack Handey) as someone who has been writing code and building software systems for over 20 years. If I can save someone from hours of tedious debugging, reading docs, or trial-and-error, I will be fulfilled 🙂
