Learning Objective-C and getting back to this ....

Ok, so as anyone who has landed here before already knows I don't post much, but one of my New Year Resolutions is to be a little more proactive with what I do. First a little update on me. I still have Fuse Developments up an running but at the same time I am the Senior ColdFusion Developer at Jobsite123.com LLC. I currently work with a great team of guys and I am learning new things everyday.

Finally after all these years I am using the ColdBox Framework, even though I was at Sandals back in the day when Luis and his colleagues decided to create this amazing framework I never got around to actually using it. Now that I have, I don't see myself doing any new projects without it. Also, I've noticed a lot of CF Bloggers love to use JQuery but I am a Prototype user by heart and I will make my best effort to write some tutorials about using this great JavaScript Framework along with it's companion animation suite, Scriptaculous.

One of the main reasons I don't blog much is my terrible grammar skills, which many of you will eventually experience. Maybe this will help me become a better writer/communicator ... we'll see. Also, I am self taught and sometimes I think I don't have much to offer but since my new job, I've realized that everyone always has something to offer and here goes my attempt.

So to summarize this is what I do, what I am learning and what I will be posting about in the near future.

  • ColdFusion
    Expect version 8 and 9 tutorials and goodies.
  • JavaScript
    Expect tutorials on using Prototype and Scriptaculous.
  • CSSExpect tutorials on using css to create better layouts and leaving those nasty nested tables behind.
  • Objective-C and Cocoa (Cocoa Touch)Yes after being a member for over a year I am finally taking the time to learn how to create Mac and iPhone applications and I may post things that I learn here.

That's pretty much it .... ohh and Happy New Year!!!!!
