About Punkcoder

I am a Software Developer with a passion for ALM, Agile, and Coding Practices. I have been working in .NET as a developer for over a decade, a network admin for years before that. I have worked for large companies and small ones, many that you would recognize some that you probably interact with. I am opinionated and deeply curious about the world. If you have a problem there is a good chance that I would be interested in hearing about it. More than that I want to help others, mostly because I believe that helping a single person raises the quality for everyone.

Migrating the site to umbraco.

Created On: 1/16/2015 5:16:42 PM

So I have been working on migrating the site from DNN to Umbraco, in the long run it's a better fit for me. Hopefully this will mean more updates in the days to come as I will have less of the other maintenance to do on a regular basis.


Building Resilient Networks

Created On: 7/22/2014 12:00:00 AM

It seems to me that there is an interesting space in the development of secure applications that is on the edge of hitting critical mass. Specifically in the space dealing with taking sites off-line by third-party organizations or governments. Two interesting ones that came across my desk today are IPFS (https://github.com/jbenet/go-ipfs) and cockroachDB (https://github.com/cockroachdb/cockroach). This has been an area that I have been deeply interested in for a very long time, as well as putting some of my own thoughts behind the process. I'm encouraged to see that both of these projects seem to be heading in the right direction, and I definitely want to give them the shout out for doing some amazing implementation work so far. Both appear to be an alpha but I'm very interested to see where these both go.


Your warranty will expire soon.

Every once and a while you get an email message that makes you a little concerned then you read over it and then you find something that makes you laugh as a part of it.  I very recently got a newer machine for work, it came with the warranty.  So you could imagine my concern when I received an email message saying that the warranty was running out.  That was until I looked at the date on the expiration… smooth move Dell…
