Programming however is only my second love. I started out as a systems guy. I went to school for telecommunication and graduated Deans list in 2007. I am also a Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator, A+ (got that when I was 16, way back in the day ), and an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) in Coldfusion 8.
There are tons of programming blogs out there, but I started this one because
A) I needed a place to vent. Apex drives me crazy sometimes.
B) I haven’t seen many other blogs working with the same mix of technologies I work with.
C) I’d like to think maybe I can help some people who are doing the same stuff I am.
So there ya go. I am just going to be posting what I find, and what works for me. Take everything I write with a grain of salt. As rage-ful as I might seem in my posts, I really do enjoy my job, and I do like getting to work on so many fun projects, but some parts about it, will always be… challenging 😉
If you enjoy my work, or I’ve been helpful and you want to show your thanks, I keep an Amazon wishlist at http://amzn.com/w/3I0OHNN36MEC2 I’m always happy to get anything 🙂 Or you can donate to me on Paypal
When I’m not pounding out code, I enjoy camping, beer brewing, talking/debating/reading philosophy, hanging out with friends, weight lifting, DDR, video games, and martial arts. I’m currently a bachelor living with a roommate, my dog, and his cat.
Oh, also for the record my name is not actually Kenji. That’s just a name I’ve been using as my online handle forever, and it’s kind of evolved into my alter ego. Real name is Dan. I use them pretty interchangeably though. So if you see me in meat space and say ‘hey Kenji’ don’t worry I’ll know you’re talking to me.
Me in the news
Article in Information Weekly talking about cloudspokes
I am mentioned and actually had a short interview segment with information weekly about my participation in CloudSpokes.
I was invited to an informal luncheon with the guys from CloudSpokes to talk with Venturebeat about crowd sourcing. While I am not wild about the quotes from me they used (I don’t sound quite so juvenile in real life, I don’t think. Such is out of context quotes I guess) it was still fun. This was my first time being the ‘developer rep for CloudSpokes.
My interview for the ‘Better Know a CloudSpoker’ segment. Kind of fun
