Hello World! This is my very first blog post.
Honestly, there really isn't much to see right now. Most of the projects that are on here are works in progress, and I probably have over a thousand blog entries to write. But I gotta start somewhere. Without first laying down the foundation, there is nothing for me to build upon. This website will serve as the framework for my future cloud projects, as well as motivation for me to continue building new software.
In addition, this site is also my playground to experiment with new and emerging web technologies, and see how they can be used to build more useful applications.
The web has come a long way. We used to have some very nice dynamic websites back in 2010 with Flash as the forefront technology. But Flash was hugely inefficient, and there was a movement away from it for a time, as a new class of computing devices (read: smartphones and tablets) were not powerful enough at the time to handle it.
If you have watched Marvel's Iron Man 3, then you will find this familiar: "You're an engineer, right? Why don't you just... build something?"
