So we get started!

August 14, 2009

Let me start by giving some information about myself. My name is Quintin de Kok, a Development Director in a small development house called QC Solutions in Pretoria, South Africa focussing on development in .NET although we often take on Open Source support projects. I have a wife of a few years now and we recently added a little girl to our family.

I was listening to .NET Rocks podcast episode #467 and got a reference to a site created by Microsoft for developers during these tough economic times, Thrive. The site means to give developers the skill sets to place themselves above the rest.

I then had an look at an interesting video of a talk given by Scott Hanselman at Devscovery here… 

I agreed with most of what Scott said and I figured what the hey, let’s start a blog!

So, I’m going to make a concerted effort to blog some interesting challenges and articles for you to view, reference and use as you wish. Leave me a comment if you’d like to get in contact or check out the contact details on our site here…
