Well, I guess it's only logical to start a new developers blog with the most obvious starting point for each developer learning something new.
This is my Hello World of writing my own personal blog.
And as most Hello World examples it will be short.
Who are you?
I am Donovan van der Roest and I work as development team manager at DPG Technology / Tweakers.net in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I'm a professional geek since 2000 and hobbyist geek for ever since I started with my fathers Commodore 64 and Amiga after that. I Still miss the good old Amiga (500/1200) days!
I used to love gaming, but nowadays I find myself programming more often than playing games. I do so mostly for personal interst projects such as my Wine sites Vinifinder and Italian-wine-info as well as Crypto experiments of DIY projects in the garden.
Why a blog?
Mostly to document how-to articles and short tutorials for myself as well as to give back to the community. I have been using other developers their tutorials for many years, it's time to give something back.
Blogs do get outdated don't they?
Yeah they do, so I have removed all outdated posts and hope to start writing new ones at some point in the future.
