Environment Part 1

Nine minutes have gone by since my last post and I’m ready to post another entry – so far this is going well.

Sublime Text is currently my coding environment. I used to use Notepad++ but Sublime won me over due to its fantastic themes, a great looking coding window, and also this post from Nettuts+.

Sublime is free to use (but prompts you to purchase a license after some use) and does not have the “clunky” feel like Notepad++. Sublime feels like I went from Windows 95 to Windows 7. It has a great snippets manager (as does Notepad++) but there’s something to be said about the aesthetic of the software you use daily: it needs to look decent.

Here’s a screenshot of my coding window:

Hello and Welcome

It seems to me like the very first post should always be some kind of greeting.

Hi, how are you? I hope you are doing well.

Since we’ve gotten that out of the way, let me tell you a little bit about me. I am currently a Desktop Support Technician that also does some Web Development work but I’ve caught the coding bug and Web Development is all I want to do.

This site will be a blog about my learning of coding, web standards, typography, and probably some random posts here and there.
