First... Err.. Second Post of the New Year

Well it's been awhile since I wrote my last blog entry. I thought I'd throw up a quick post on the state of the union as it was.
  • I could not survive without Resharper 2.5. I can now code without having a mouse anywhere near me and it's so much faster.
  • I've been doing Domain Driven Design ever since I learnt about OO from my good friend Kris. I just recently found out that was the name for it.
  • I've learnt more in the last 6 months then in the last 6 years. While I'm nowhere near the level I'd like to be at, I can happily say I am much better at what I do then I was this time last year.
  • The Refactoring book by Martin Fowler has changed the way I develop software. I am constantly looking at my code.
  • I still have a ton of stuff to learn...

5 Things Eh?

So I've been dragged into the 5 things blog game by Mr. David Woods

1. I'm a huge fan of zombie movies and books. I just got World War Z for Christmas and I had it finished in 2 days.

2. I prefer being cold to being hot. That's reason #1 you'll never get me to spend more then a week in Florida.

3. My first job as a software developer was working with Visual Basic 6.0. I did that for 6 years and now snuggle up to a C# compiler at night.

4. The last two vehicles I've owned were both new and both were written off within a year (neither was at fault thank you very much!)

5. I once sneezed so hard that I twisted a rib.. or so says the doctor.

As for the 5 people I get to tag.. well it seems most of the bloggers I read have already partaken in the game.. I still have a few up my sleeve to tag..
