My Blog A collection of technical and non-technical mishaps, achievements and stories.


New Website

Facebook and Twitter are a great place to share personal thoughts, pictures, etc with your friends and family.  A big part of who I am is my inner nerd.  I wanted a place to share this part of me with the world.  I've begun development on this site so that I can do just that.  I plan to share some of the technological struggles (and hopefully victories) that I face at work.  If nothing else, this is a great opportunity for me to keep a record of what I'm doing so that I can look at how far I've progressed as a programmer.


I am happily employeed as a software developer.  The majority of work that I do at work is with C# (typically MVC based web projects), and I leverage technologies like plain old vanilla JavaScript, Jquery, AJAX, and my personal favorite, SignalR.  I've also had the unique opportunity of writing a couple of Android apps as well.  The work that I do at work will likely never be seen by the world, as almost everything I do is for internal customers. If someone wants to see the kind of work that I can produce, they should be able to see it here.


Where I am happily employed, I am taking my time with this project and making it exactly how I want it to be.  This is my way of unwinding.  With that in mind, through this project I am developing a custom CMS (Content Management System).  While not even at the full version yet, I've included a blogging module, page management, email interface, users/roles/administration, tagging, and even a real time notification system.  At the end of this project, I hope to have a fully developed CMS that I can offer to people or businesses looking to create a powerful web presence that is easily managed, and customize to meet any needs.


Thanks for reading this, and I'm looking forward to writing more.  Actually, I look forward to looking back.

Today I embark on a rather ambitious journey into the world of mobile development paired with a cloud-based back-end.  I've had plenty of ideas that I've tossed around as far as developing something new, something that's needed, and most importantly, something that will be used.  This idea actually has potential, and it...

Creating Static Error Pages Dynamically in MVC

Ben Foster has a great article on setting up custom error pages in an MVC project that I typically refer to each time I create a new one.  Recently, I've finally decided to work smarter, not harder, by setting up my own MVC seed project.  Of course, this should include some pre-defined error pages.  Unfortunately, error pages aren't ...
