I have got round to getting a website and blog up and running the day after the Oscars, and although I haven't won any awards I still feel the need to thank everyone that have made it possible. I am a developer at heart and just 5 or 10 years ago I would have been looking to chop the giant down at the waist and develop my own Blog software or develop a web app and using that instead of using else’s software. Over the years I have come to the conclusion that what is the point, it is better to short circuit the development cycle, as long as the short circuit is worthy. Software development is all about the customer or consumer and getting something developed as quickly as possible, which will exceed the customer’s requirements, this is the same for a simple blog. If you can install a piece of software on a server you have saved yourself many hours which you can then dedicate to getting something else more productive done. Of course I still need to be a dwarf, and the shoulder needs to be a good base; tweakable to exceed all my needs. It’s all about getting things done, and that’s what this blog is about.I will be standing on the shoulders of many giants explaining how I get things done. It would be great to get and keep some readers but I don’t mind it only ends up being a simple brain dump of what is in my head, and things I get up to as a dotnet Developer/Manager.
