This post can get very long due to the number of my goals so I’ve decided that the following will be the new format of the quarterly reviews. I’m just going to have little blurbs under each one to quickly explain what’s happened or is happening. Comment below if you got here from the CodeNewbie chat, […]
If you haven’t kept up with my Twitter then surprise I have a job! I started work as a software developer at a local hospital last Monday. I’m not going to disclose their name because right now I work for a staffing company and I’m based in the hospital. Fingers crossed though that I might get […]
My review of my Personal and Professional goals for the year within the first quarter of 2017.
Resolutions are fine, goals are great, but as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry so famously said: “A goal without a plan is just a wish.” So are you a wisher or are you a doer?
If you’ve been a software developer for more than a month then you’ve undoubtedly heard about bidding websites such as UpWork. Regardless how you may feel about them they can be useful especially to software developers who are just starting out and trying to build up their resume/portfolio of work.

At the beginning of last year, I made serval somewhat simple goals. I implemented the smart goals system to help me accomplish them which basically states that all goals should be realistic, measurable, and have a due date. Instead of saying you’ll lose weight this year you’d say “I’ll weigh X by this specific date.” […]
Today I just wanted to take a minute to let you know what I’ve been up to and what’s going on in my life. First off I just want to make a quick announcement that on Thanksgiving I officially launched version 1.0.0 of Open School Library! Feel free to head on over to the repo […]
If you weren’t able to watch Microsoft Connect(); 2016 live you can still view all three days over at Channel9. I just want to quickly run through some of the major highlights from the conference. Azure App Service support Containers on Linux and Windows Visual Studio 2017 RC release Live Unit Testing in Visual […]
When I first started the Open School Library project it was actually in ASP.NET WebForms if you can believe that. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with WebForms really I just think it’s a bit bloated for what I was trying to accomplish. Back then Open School library wasn’t open source. I was actually writing […]
