Let me start off by introducing myself. My name is Otis Goodwin and I am the Developer Support Manager at LEAD Technologies. I have been with LEAD since 2005, and was initially hired a Developer Support Agent. I moved into the manager position after a few years. My position at LEAD has exposed me to all kinds of software technologies and languages including ActiveX, COM, .NET, WCF, ASP.NET, C, C++, WPF, Silverlight, Metro, WP7, VCL, and pretty much anything else developers use on a Windows machine. With that said, my core skills and framework of choice encompass practically everything DotNet related.
I have been contemplating starting a blog for some time now and with a little motivation from others at LEAD, I figured the New Year was a perfect time to start. The first question I asked myself was, ‘what I am going to talk about’? And I wondered if anyone would care about what I have to say? After thinking about this, the answer was quite easy. I frequently read other development, technical, and gadget blogs because a) the author and I have similar interest, b) I like hearing the opinion of other programmers and c), I frequently find myself reading someone’s blog when I am searching for a solution to a problem I am having. Knowing this about me, and figuring that there are bunch of other programmers thinking the same way, I am planning to talk about my experiences as a programmer. I will discuss my opinion on current and new technologies, and how it all relates to LEADTOOLS Imaging and Multimedia SDK’s.
I am pretty excited about this blog, and I already have a few topics lined up that I want to talk about. Stay tuned for more posts, and feel free to leave comments.
