Busy Year

I don’t normally do “status updates”, but it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, so I’ll go ahead and do one. The past year has been kind of crazy, a lot of stuff going on. I’ve moved to ASP.Net C# as my primary back-end development language, although I still use PHP for most projects. I definitely believe in using the right tool for the right job, and sometimes .Net isn’t the right tool (sometimes PHP isn’t the right tool either). I’ve always been a fan of the strictness and type-safety of C#, and finally getting to use it on a daily basis is pretty exciting for me (Who gets excited about code anyway? Heh, I know I do).

I’ve also moved away from Flash development and into the “mobile sphere”. I’m still willing to do Flash where necessary, but I just don’t think that it makes sense for most websites. We’ve come a long way since the “All Flash” website “glory days”… I think that it’s fairly evident that mobile devices are the future. I’ve completed two iPhone apps (Learning Japanese and Japanese Alphabet Study Guide) and will probably start doing some Android development next year. I may even start posting more often… See you around.
