Hello!

 

I told my family and friends that I will be launching a personal website/blog before I go to Peru. 

 

And now finally, after over 80 commits on Github over the past month, here it is! My new blog. Built from scratch using ASP.NET MVC Core and hosted on an Azure VM.

Why ASP.NET?

In my current day job, I am a full stack web developer at a company which mostly uses ASP.NET. Prior to this job, I've had no experience whatsoever in C#. So I've decided to use this project as a way to improve my C# skills.

 

Why Azure?

Having used AWS for projects before, now is as good time as any to expose myself to something different.  It's currently cheaper than AWS and hey, why not support the underdog?

 

Why blog?

In addition to being a fun programming project, I've intended this site as a place for my family, friends and strangers to go experience the interesting parts of my life. Keep checking back here for content!

 

Why "Commit By Default"?

That's a question that I shall answer later. Maybe in another post. Maybe on my About page.

 

And with that, I conclude my "grand opening".
