Just an update

As you may know, I’m a developer for Rockfish Interactive. Well, I’m a senior developer. I got promoted a few months ago. Regardless, I code all day and I love it. Why do I love it? I get to do different stuff all the time. I get to do cut out, javascript, database work, and good ole C#. It’s never a dull moment, but can get a little stressful. I’m currently on a project that has web, mobile web, and facebook components. It’s been a great opportunity to learn how to share content and site components across platforms. I’m still trying to figure out the best way to share across mobile web and web. It still seems to be a case by case basis. I ran into some frustrations on my current project. Main issues were multiple people on the same project. I have issues with source control. I dislike Mercurial, SVN, and all the other version controls I’ve used. Need to try GIT I guess.

Haven’t had much time to blog lately. Heh, haven’t had much time to do scouting, much gaming, or anything. I’m going to make more of an effort when I come up with better ideas and make time. Until then I’m just going to keep Minecrafting!

I’m a Technology Architect for Rockfish Digital. I’ve been there since 2007. I love coding and spend most of my time in C# and JavaScript. I’m a firm believer in the Full Stack Developer.

Geek Office In The Closet

Space is running out in our house. We’re looking to clean out one of our bed rooms. Amanda had her craft room and I had my office. I read an article recently from Elijah Manor, a developer I follow on twitter, about how he moved his office into his closet. I got a little inspired. I probably have A.D.D. and being in a smaller space would probably do me some good.

I moved into the closet and used a spare plank and some shelves I had for a desk. This worked, but the desk was shaky and wasn’t a comfortable height. I decided that I really needed to build a desk into my wall to really utilize the space. I did little bit of research and found out I could do all of this at a fairly low price.

A trip to Ireland

My wife and I just recently got back from a vacation in Ireland. It was a pretty amazing experience. Our last big vacation was to Jamaica for our honeymoon. We flew into Shannon, drove the southern coast, and flew out of Dublin. We spent nights in Tralee, Waterville, Kinsale, Kilkenny, and Dublin. We had a day long layover in New York where we did some fun stuff too. A trip this long and traveling that distance is too long to much for a single post so I’ll give the a major overview.
