I used to blog, quite a bit in fact, but that was many years ago. I blogged about software development, particularly about the work I was doing with ColdFusion. Yes, ColdFusion still exists, but no, I haven't used it in over 7 years. When I started working with other technologies I ended up consuming more blog posts that I was writing. The communities for these other technologies were much larger than the ColdFusion community, and it didn't feel like I, as a newcomer, had much to offer.
My team is starting a new project, writing a code review tool, and we're adopting some technologies that are new to me, including TypeScript. I've also decided to finally switch my IDE. So I've been doing quite a bit of learning over the past few weeks, and I decided I'd start blogging again to share some of the tidbits I've found. At first this will mostly just be notes to myself - little things that took me awhile to hunt down - things that might help someone else who finds themselves with the same question. But I hope that as I learn more and more useful things I'll be able to share more interesting posts.
So, if you're someone who used to read my blog ages ago, I welcome you to join me again as I take the plunge back into blogging.
