It’s been about two years since I last had a site up for personal and professional use and a lot has changed in those two years as developer.
I am now working full time as a wordpress developer. What this means is I am always working, learning and improving my skills in this system and community, day in and day out.
If anyone may remember my old site, I had a handful of Firefox OS flashing and un-bricking guides for the Keon and Peak phones. I still have these around but with the demise of Firefox OS I doubt I’ll be picking up and writing another tutorial on how to flash B2G OS (the successor/continuation ) to these devices. But we’ll see. Sometimes one likes to tinker with the OS we needed but didn’t deserve.
So what’s all this then? Why make a new site?
Well, I make sites, and I ramble (case and point). And over the past two years or so I have improved as a developer by 10x. While I don’t believe I’ll ever shake that feeling of Imposter Syndrome, I do believe that I have tips, tricks and rants to share about what I have discovered within WordPress, and within the land of PHP. The good, the bad and the why in the name of Cthulhu, is whatever function/method handling the way it is.
In short, I’ve built about three dozen live sites since I finished college, I’ve seen somethings from hacked sites which needed careful rebuilding to utter nightmares but I also love every moment of it cause it’s challenge. I want to share those experiences, write up tutorials in relation to best practices you won’t find else where and open the floor to discussions on the quirky parts of programming I find along the way.
The point of this site, is for rambles and advice and to even learn from those who might read.
Finally, my pet project is learning a completely new language, in this case that is Swift. But not before understanding the core mechanics of Objective-C. The end goal here is not just to write iOS/macOS applications but to have a greater understanding of a new language. Something completely outside of Web Development.
Anyway, that pretty much covers it. I wrote more than expected, but hey, thats why I’m tagging this under rambles.
