New Focus for this Blog

This blog will have a new focus.  Up til now, the blog has been pretty much only on Open XML.  However, now I am going to go much wider afield.  Over the years I’ve gained some experience and insight into certain aspects of being a developer, and I’m going to start blogging about them – things like:

  • How I use PowerShell as a developer
  • My own approach to coverage testing, and why it is different and better
  • My approach to learning new programming languages quickly
  • Using screen-casts for intra-team communication – and how to create screen-casts super quickly
  • How I currently use the cloud as a development tool

I’m also going to discuss some of the more philosophical aspects of being a developer – I’ll even discuss what I did before I worked at Microsoft, and how and why I ended up doing what I’m doing.

And I’m certain I’ll discuss things that I haven’t contemplated yet.

This is going to be fun.

    Hi Eric,
    Thanks for sharing your ideas – the posts I’ve read so far (regarding XML analysis and processing) are brilliant and mind-opening. I’m eager to start learning about all those other topics you mention, too.
