I’m back after a long hiatus

It’s been some time since I’ve written to this blog. I guess life got in the way and at the time I didn’t feel that I was contributing enough to warrant the time taken to write up my articles. However, I have received views and comments on the blog complementing my writing style and encouraging me to keep writing.

Another factor is the fact that I have recently come back to read my old posts and actually liked what I read. I felt that I actually did have something to contribute, even if at the time I wasn’t convinced my pontificating would go very far.

At the very least, it is somewhat therapeutic to write these things down. I’ve learned so much in the past 5 years since I posted anything here and I feel that there is more to share. Not only that, but sometimes blogs become a great place to put stuff down that you don’t want to forget.

I don’t want to forget my initial thrust for this blog. It is called the Green Machine because I hoped I could use it to show that young and inexperienced developers do have something to give and can make great software. I was a young and inexperienced developer myself when I started it. Of course, I’m old and grizzled now Smile but I still have something to tell these young developers.


The truth is, we are all young developers in some capacity. I consider myself an accomplished C# and JavaScript developer. I now am embarking on a journey to learn Go. In terms of Go, I am a young and inexperienced programmer. Maybe that is a great upside of the software world. At any time, you can choose to reinvent yourself by learning a new language and trying to see where it can take you.

I’ll post my findings when it comes to learning Go. I hope you’ll find it as interesting as I do. I’ve also started the journey into application security, gaining my CompTIA Security+ certification. Be on the lookout for blog posts on security as well.


Hopefully, there will be some out there willing to bear my pontificating once more Open-mouthed smile
