I am what I like to think of as a professional amateur. I can not believe that someone pays me to do what I do. I have no formal training in IT at all, yet here I am developing T-SQL, PL/SQL, SSIS packages, SQL Server and Microsoft Access front ends and databases, and scripts written in an archaic proprietary language. That just scratches the surface too. I’ve also been known to tap into the Google Apps API from time to time. I just love to code. I’m still not sure how it became my job.
I’ve tried a number of different methods for archiving my code “library”, but none has worked out well. This is my latest experiment in that arena. The best part is that this allows me to share what I’ve learned with others, and maybe I can learn something from you as well. I’m learning everyday. We all should be.
While that is the primary purpose of this site, I do intend to use this venue to write about other subjects. Subjects like life, philosophy, and family. I hope I don’t catch you too off guard when I go from talking about writing efficient, reusable, code to speaking about whatever else may have crossed my mind today. All in all, I just hope you enjoy and possibly learn something. Whatever that something may be.
