Today's a special day at codestore. The site's 2 years old today. Woohooo!
This time last year I was not a blogger so I wrote an "article" to celebrate instead. The response to it was amazing and still it's the things like this that keep me fuelled for more years of codestore action.
Which brings me to make a point. Something people have been picking up on are the (*cough*) PHP noises I've been making recently. Am I going to give up on codestore you ask. Of course not! It would be stupid of me to do that. This site is literally my bread and butter. Without it my résumé would just be another in the pile on the pointy-haired boss's desk. This site has had more than a helping hand in getting me my last 4 positions. In fact it was the only thing that got me the job I'm in at the moment. So to stop now would equate to professional suicide.
That's not to say it won't change in form over the next year or so. This site is basically where I share what I learn from day to day. It's daft of me to think I will be working with anything but Domino for at least the next two years, so I will therefore be writing about any new Domino happenings. I also plan to learn some complimentary skills along the way and these are bound to be included from time to time. Hopefully you find them of interest too.
A lot has happened in the last year. Not just personally but on a global scale. Unfortunate events led to a downfall in the Notes job market and I lost what I thought was a fairly secure contract. I then spent the following five months "looking" for work and I am now eternally grateful to Mike for my current role (Burger King beckoned). Other less significant happenings include:
- Notes.net spotlight
- 2 new looks (previous).
- LDD was dropped on us
- Got you all steamed up over SVG and then didn't produce
- Spent 24 hours blogging for charity
- Revealed the cassetica spam controversy
- Was interviewed by Newsweek
See you again this time next year.... who knows what the site will look like then (maybe with a URL ending in .php??)
