Welcome to my new Blog!
Now get off my back Phil!
My name is Alistair Deneys and I’m a Solution Architect working with .net and Sitecore. I have a strong interest in programming languages and development process and I hope to share some of my experiences with you.
Ever since Phil Heltewig started the Australian Sitecore office, he’s been hassling me to start a blog. I’ve been resisting for a while now as I’ve just had too much on. I hope some of you have seen my hard work in Revolver. Now that the Revolver release is imminent (the beta is just wrapping up), I’m finding I have a little more time on my hands (which I’m sure will evaporate very soon). This all also falls into timing with the NDA period for the new release of Sitecore codenamed Crestone coming to an end and the floodgates are opening on the torrent of Crestone info about to hit the wild, wild web. In a vain fit, I’m hoping to cast one of the first Crestone blog entries (next blog post…).
So, back to me and blogging. Previously I’ve resisted the urge to blog. I’ve seen far too many blogs which were appalling. Blog entries which were no more than “I saw this cool link, go check it out”. Or entries which just asked the readers what they were doing; “I want to do this thing. How are you all doing it?”. These kinds of blog entries add absolutely no value what-so-ever. But why should I not try to contribute just because these other blogs only detract? So I’ve set myself some boundaries and guidelines to blog within.
And so, here we go, further down the rabbit hole…
