Welcome!

This new blog will be my humble attempt at consolidating my technical thoughts in a place that isn't likely to make the rest of my family's eyes glaze over!

I am an ASP.NET developer in Southeast Houston and have been working as a programmer for nearly 10 years.  I have spent most of my time working with web applications and SQL Server.  In 2005, I made the leap from ColdFusion 5.0 to the .NET Framework 1.1 - along with the quantum leap between procedural and Object-Oriented thinking - and have since been on a quest to discover the best practices for making my work the most enjoyable.

The goal of this site will be a place for me to not only cover these kinds of practices but also to provide resources that have helped me for anyone else who is looking to 'Sharpen the Saw'.  Like a lot of blogs, I'll be covering things as I see them and as they are relevant to the kind of work I'm involved in, so there will be a blend of both technical fact as well as opinion.  The latter, I'm certain will change over time given that learning is a never-ending process.

And so, it begins...
