Hmmm.. It seems that I have started myself a nifty little blog! I might be a little late on the train, starting a technical blog in 2007, am I? But more importantly, why am I doing this ? Well, for starters I like to help others. I want to share my knowledge and ideas with the most people possible, and I want to connect with other people who like the same things as I do.
Who am I? I’m Stanislas Biron, software consultant in Montreal, Canada. I have a lot of interests in everything that is tech-related but I'm especially fond of the Microsoft’s .NET technologies (C#, VB.NET, ASP.NET) and I will probably blog a lot of content about those. I also want this blog to become some kind of code repository for interesting snippets or whole projects. So if you have some interesting code that you want to share with the others readers, feel free to email it to me at : email@example.com. I’ll make sure to include it into my posts and maybe that someday, I'll be able to do a “Stan’s daily piece of code” to showcase the numerous marvels that we can come across in our work as developers. Sometimes, I'll also show some bad code (that I may or may not have written at some point) and show you how that kind of code can be refactored and transformed to become better. Everyone of us makes mistakes but it’s by sharing those mistakes and by listening to others that we can really learn from them.
And by the way, I'm using the Dasblog blogging engine to run this blog and so far it’s a very smooth and nice experience. It’s written in ASP.NET and is Open Source so if you’re interested in seeing some interesting blogging engine code or if you want to start a blog yourself and wonders what technology to use, Dasblog is a good choice in my opinion.
So let’s get started, shall we?
