Hello All! This is my first post on the new blog platform. I've decided to move away from Blogger mainly because its pretty inflexible. I've found that the biggest problem with Blogger is that its meant for a general blog, and not so much for technology blogs.
What I mean by that is that there's no easy way to configure that blog to showcase code in a good way, or just make it easy to make references to outside material.
A friend of mine Brad (www.blinard.azurewebsites.net) turned me onto a blog platform called Ghost, and I have to admit I'm impressed. Quick and easy deployment to Azure, and it beats the hell out of building my own blogging engine.
Like I said definitely worth a look and I hope to pick up blogging again shortly from here. I'm in the process of moving everything over but for those interested watch this space. Also, I am in the works of setting up two more talks and will post details when I have them.
