I’ve never been great at keeping up with blogging, but I believe it’s important, especially as a software engineer as it exercises our ability to document and write things down. I typically blog when I have free time and my mind isn’t focusing on other things. As I’ve taken a vacation day today, I figured it would be a good time to dust off my blog and talk about what’s been keeping me from posting, but also things that continue to interest me with the hope that it can spark some excitement for new postings.
