A new blog, what I should say is my first blog. I've never blogged before besides spamming pictures of radiohead to my old Tumblr account. This is a bit more of a mature approach in comparison to what I used to consider a blog. I have wanted to start a blog for a while, but for some reason or another I was not very attracted to any of the blogging platforms I had come accross. It was due to my recent dabbling in the EmberJS framework that led me to Ghost. I was pretty intrigued when I found out Ghost was running on EmberJS; however, the real hook was that it is open source and I had been looking for an opportunity to make contributions to the open source community. Yay for open source!

What I plan to talk about

Although this blog will be mostly ramblings on many different topics; here are a few things I plan to talk about:

Software Development

I am heading into my 4th year of my Bsc Computing Science and am currently working as a Systems Developer Intern, so I plan on focussing mainly on topics regarding software, the development process, different frameworks, things that generally interest me in the development world.

Programming Tutorials

I love coding, and I want you to too. If I pick up a new skill or find a solution to a problem that I think could help others, it is likely that I will post a explanation/tutorial on my blog. So tune in every once and a while for a quick tip!

Student Life

As I mentioned above, I am heading into my 4th year of the Bsc Computing Science program at the University of Alberta. I'm also an intern for the first time in my life. All this is pretty exciting to me so there is a good chance that I will chat about either of these things in the future.

New Technology - All Things Cool

I am always interested in cool new technology. We live in an exciting time when technology has become a relevant part of everyone's life. Constantly changing, evolving; it makes for an exciting topic.

General Speak

Most importantly, I plan on using this blog as a place where I can just think and talk. I'm not an overly vocal person so sometimes it's nice to talk to a blank canvas. Which is why I wanted to create a blog in the first place!

So here goes nothing! I hope you, whoever you are, enjoy what I have to say.

Until next time,
