Every blog needs an about me, right?
Well, about me. I’m getting older, but I don’t feel it. I am a programmer by profession, but not an application developer. I have done a ton of Java programming for my actual job, though it has been a while.
When Java first came out, I actually wrote a simple widget which resembles the first app I want to write so I know the logic is pretty simple. I also know the app has a certain appeal which I’ll explain elsewhere.
I am currently typing this on an ancient tiny Dell media PC, which has to be about ten years old, and is slow as all hell. One of the things I want to figure out is what a good development environment will look like. Can I use this crappy Dell, but then use the compute power of Amazon AWS for example. Or do I need to buy a new machine (which is always fun!)
