Slacking on Posts

25. January 2006 18:33

I have been slacking lately on keeping up with posts.  A lot has been going on at both work and home.  Yesterday, it was officially confirmed that my wife and I are expecting our first child.  I don't post a lot of personal stuff on this particular blog, but I couldn't resist briefly mentioning the news.  A separate blog has already been setup for baby related information that will be updated during the course of the pregnancy.  You can view it here:

I know that I have been promising to post a series of articles concerning TDD over the last couple of months.  However, I have decided to hold off on those.  There is a high probability that I will wait and do a presentation or two at the next Alabama Code Camp concerning TDD or Agile methodologies in general.  In addition, I am going to require using most of my free time to prepare for the MCPD beta exams that I have scheduled in February and March.  I would certainly hate to blow an opportunity to upgrade my certifications for free.  So, I will most likely start posting .NET 2.0 tidbits that I come across while studying some areas that I haven't used much.

Currently, I am playing with DotNetNuke version 4.0.2 for a project at work.  Until just recently, I didn't really have much exposure to the platform.  However, I am rather impressed with its capabilities as I dig into deeper detail.  There is certainly a lot you can do with it and it provides an enormous amount of functionality out of the box.  This is another topic that I may potentially post about in the near future.

In the meantime, bear with me while I try to get caught up on things and come to terms with the fact that I am going to be a dad in less than a year!
