2008 Reflections

Man, it feels good to be back to blogging! It was an awesome Christmas break, but I must admit I kept coming up with ideas I wanted to blog about.

Anyhow, '08 was a great year for me: I moved to a great company and started blogging regularly. I also learned a lot of LINQ, some Ruby, and had some great personal moments.

As a recap of 2008, I wanted to share my favorite posts so far:
The Secret Behind SQL
Easy Background Tasks in ASP.NET
Why Partial Classes Are Wrong!

I also wanted to thank all of you that regularly read my blog. There's a few of you out there that are loyal readers, checking often whether I have new content or not; knowing that you're reading makes me much more critical of what I write. Thanks for your time!

Finally, here's and interesting graph of traffic on this blog:

You see that spike right around Nov. 17th, 2008? That, my friends, comes from onesmall comment buried among hundred of comment's in Jeff Atwood's blog. Isn't that crazy? That blog is the black hole of developer effort; I swear every developer on planet earth goes there to waste their time... I can't find any other explanation for getting so much traffic from just one comment. Thanks Jeff! And thanks to everyone that followed the link and took time to read what I had to say.

May 2009 be a great year for you.
