Yet another developers blog…

Maintaining a blog is always a great idea for a developer. There are so many things we discover that are surprising. Whether good or bad. These are the lessons from the trenches.

I personally struggle with maintaining a blog. But somehow this is going to be different.

To help inspire me, I’m going to put down some topics I would like to cover here.
