And I christen this blog…

Well it had to happen eventually…

After several years of sponging up the information spilling forth from other bloggers and using that information to become a better developer I have finally succumbed to temptation to try to add my own voice to the crowd in an effort to give something back to the community that has been supporting me. And really – if developers are going to try to develop their skills shouldn’t it be a two-way street rather than just take, take take?

Sure, there’s a healthy level of competition in the developer community but it’s the symbiotic relationships that really seem to make us thrive so in that spirit I’m launching the Symbiotic Development blog.

The catalyst that finally got me blogging was my attendance at the ALT.NET.UK conference in London this weekend where I met several very interesting people and had the chance to participate in a variety of collaborative discussions covering a wide range of subjects. During the last several months I have been hearing about how great the ALT.NET conference in Austin was from some of the other players out there and the chance to attend and see what all the fuss was about was an opportunity that was simply too good to pass up. Upon seeing an annoucement on Jeremy Miller’s blog a codebetter.com I started watching the website and as luck would have it I managed to snag myself a position there.

It was an excellent event and I’ll be posting with more information about the sessions I attended once I’ve had a chance to sort my thoughts into a digestible format. Until then…keep on sharing.
