So finally, a number of years after the horse has bolted and indeed as the popularity of blogging is very much on the wane, I finally start a blog. Possibly better late than never, but lets see how things go before forming judgement on that.
This is a technical blog and I'll be trying to keep things focussed on code with little waffle.
For those that don't know me, I've been working developing software for many more years than I care to confess. I started commercial development with Microsoft Visual C++ 1.0 (20 floppy disk install iirc), went via VB and C#, and currently do most development in Java. I plan to move to bash server pages next. Maybe.
I currently work on the software behind guardian.co.uk, which is mostly java with spring/hibernate/velocity. Anything I write here is of course my own opinions only and nothing to do with my employer.
