One year ago I started to blog again. Time for a little recap.
Why did I do it ?
I use this blog to write down my own thoughts about software and development. This is for my own reference but also it is a little way to give something back to the world wide community in return for all the useful stuff I do read on the net.
I noticed how this also made me a better programmer. Try it out by yourself. Having a professional blog is also a good way for Personal branding.
Stats for the last 12 months
