Hey what up, I’m Chris. After developing software for over 20 years, I’ve realized a few things:
- The interweb is an invaluable tool for finding solutions to every-day problems encountered when building software
- Blog posts from other developers have probably helped save me thousands of hours of development time
- Teaching, reviewing, and documenting concepts helps me understand them better
- I’ve been horrible at giving back to the community
My realizations have led to this blog. Yes, it is yet another blog detailing the sometimes-painful-yet-rewarding process of writing instructions for machines to do stuff. This blog is different though, because it’s mine.
My goal is to give quick and to-the-point development advice and thoughts based on my experience. There are a lot of blogs out there that present software development tips, gotchas, fixes, etc in a long, drawn-out format (it’s good for SEO). I’ll do my best to get straight to the point and hopefully not miss any vital background context.
Even though I’ve been in the game for a while, software is always evolving so I’m always learning. I will never claim to write the cleanest code nor will I brag about how my data access implementation smokes some other dude’s, but I do always strive to be a better developer than I was yesterday.
Thanks for stopping by!
