What A Long, Strange Trip It’s Been

Sunday, May 17th, 2009

Yes, I just quoted a WoW achievement, and a Grateful Dead song, apparently, but in the span of time since my last post, I do find it oddly fitting, in a good way.  Just what have I been up to you ask?  Well, I’m glad you asked :)   Probably the biggest event was that my wife and I had our first child.  Definitely a life altering an amazing experience that words cannot adequately describe.  In the work sphere, I’ve been taking on a bit more responsibility here and there and have been learning a lot as well.  I’ve become quite well acquainted with Ext JS and jQuery and enjoy working with them both.  Also, I’ve been working a good bit with ASP.NET MVC lately and I’ll definitely say that, overall, I’m impressed with their implementation, though I do still enjoy MonoRail.  On the side, I’ve also been writing an MVC framework for PHP, yes, another one, and it’s been a fun experience.  Look forward to some posts regarding that in the near future … and some on ASP.NET MVC in the immediate future. 

Overall, it’s been a really good 10 months and I’m definitely looking forward to the next 10 months … hopefully with a few more blog posts.
