Hello World.

Standard

So, let’s get started with some code, this is after all, “Coding 4 Fun & Profit”. This code is not a test, it is simply something I whipped up for fun.  Profit is what I do elsewhere.

public static void Main() 
        {
            var colors = new ConsoleColor[] { 
                ConsoleColor.DarkBlue, 
                ConsoleColor.Blue, 
                ConsoleColor.DarkGray, 
                ConsoleColor.Gray, 
                ConsoleColor.White, 
                ConsoleColor.Gray, 
                ConsoleColor.DarkGray, 
                ConsoleColor.Blue, 
                ConsoleColor.DarkBlue };

            Console.BackgroundColor = ConsoleColor.Cyan;
            int x = 0;            
            foreach (char c in "Hello World")
            {
                Console.ForegroundColor = 
                     colors[x % colors.Length];
                Console.Write(c);

                x++;                
            }

            Console.ResetColor();
        }
A bit about me:

I am a professional software developer.  I’ve been working specifically as a software developer for over seven years now.  I started out professionally from college writing test software and automation, but I’ve since made career changes.  I have worked on things you may now about, and many things you’ve never heard of.  In my day to day I write code in C#, though I have also done my stint writing code in Visual Basic (.NET), C++, Java and a handful of other languages that I don’t really remember and aren’t important now.  I am by no means the best programmer that I know, though I strive to be getting better so-as to make that eventually impossible to say.

I also play games.  Lots and lots of games.  Recently I’ve finished Saints Row 4, but I’ve also been playing Rogue Legacy, Spelunky (by myself, so sad), Endless Space, Samurais vrs. Zombies, Legend of Dungeon, Realm of the Mad God, Dungeons of Dredmor, The Bureau : X-Com Declassified, Payday 2 and Gnomoria.  I have also been known to play a board game or two.

I draw. I’m a total hack of an artist, I don’t want to set your expectations too high.  I might just post images here.

I think.  Life is full of experiences, it’s inevitable that we would cogitate on them from time to time.  I would like to think I think more than most people think.  I sample the feel of thoughts sifting through my meat computer, and drink in the insights and amusing observations I sometimes arrive at.  I probably think too much.

My goal here:

This blog is really just a place for me to share whatever comes to mind.  Consider this mind-spew, or a chance to look into the inner workings of someone else.  It’s possible my insights, humor and worldview will amuse you.  I might offend you, I make no promises about keeping my content free of my personal opinions on anything.  I might inspire  you, or possibly post something that solves some crazy problem you’re working on.  All I can hope is that something of what I do persists and value is gained from this blog.
