"Hi. My name's Adam, and I'm a Software Developer."
With that introduction out of the way, I suppose I should tell you a little more about myself. I'm a 23 year old, recent Loughborough University Computer Science graduate in the UK. Like many Computer Science graduates/students I'm a big fan of programming and, by extension, software development.
I've worked on a number of different types of software over the past few years, on both the Mac and Windows. Some of it for my own entertainment, others for education and others within employment. I currently work on non-commercial Windows software for my day job, writing C++ with a touch of C# thrown in on occasion. In the evenings however, I work writing iOS software for a new company I recently co-founded, Untangled Software. There's not too much to say about that for the moment, but expect to hear more soon.
Outside of work commitments, most of the coding I've done has really been for my own benefit. This has been a great education for me, but more and more I feel like I want to push knowledge out into the world. I continually see incredible work being done on open source projects and developer resources; and it makes me question why I haven't really managed to contribute in a meaningful way.
So I've finally started a blog. It's something I've been thinking about doing on and off for ages, and I've decided that now is the time to make the jump. I hope that this blog can serve as just one of the many ways for me to contribute back to the community. I want to share the things I learn, so that others can learn from me, fueling even more incredible work.
So you're probably wondering exactly what you should expect from this blog. To be honest I'm still wondering that a little myself. I'm sure that most of the content will be technical, with a slant towards Objective-C on Mac OS and iOS; but that doesn't mean I might not include some web, design, tech news, or possibly even Windows related content every now and again. In essence the goal is to provide me with an outlet for my thoughts; hopefully in a format that can help others along the way.
With that said, I'd be really pleased to hear any feedback anyone has. If you think there is a way I could improve the usefulness of content on this site, have a question about something I've said or am working on, if you agree (or disagree) with something I've posted; then please get in touch! You can reach me using Twitter, e-mail or on AIM, Windows Live or iMessage using adam at this domain (Check the Contact page for the latest details).
Thanks for reading. I hope to produce plenty of content that brings you back!
