Site migrated to MiniBlog

Published on Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Those who have followed me over the years likely notice that the site looks a bit different. I created this site in 2005 give the Solid Edge Developer Community a place to collaborate because at the time, we didn’t have a better alternative. Now that Siemens is hosting the community, my site has been relegated to a blog site and I’m ok with that.

There are a million blogging options out there but I want to explain why I chose the solution that I did. If you’ve ever spoken with me, you’ll know that I’m terrible at web programming. I’ve also recently hit the GitHub scene in an effort to expand the Solid Edge Community open source initiative. Recently, I read a blog post from one of my idols, Scott Hanselman. In that post, Scott mentioned Mads Kristensen’s MiniBlog project. I quickly realized this was a perfect opportunity for me to learn some modern ASP.NET and get my feet wet forking projects on GitHub.

Needless to say, I’ve had a blast working with MiniBlog and learning ASP.NET\Razor by creating my own theme. My theme is still a work in progress as I learn. I am aware of a few issues but I’ll solve them as a I go. Special thanks to Mads Kristensen for creating and sharing MiniBlog and Scott Hanselman for bringing it to my attention.
