It’s getting cold outside, the trees and foliage are turning a different shade of brown or yellow with each passing day and the dark nights are drawing in – Autumn is most definitely here.
Microsoft Learning today announced a new Windows 10 developer qualification aimed at software developers who want to target the recently-released Windows 10 universal platform.
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Microsoft’s Team Foundation Server
(TFS.) It is a complete tool for managing an application throughout its
lifecycle. However I was bought up (and learnt most of my programming
skills) on open-source software. It’s important to me that I don’t

While TFS is a fantastic tool for commercial application lifecycle management, SVN (Subversion)
also has its place in corporates. It’s free and has lower training
overhead: perfect for companies that don’t need anything other than
source control (or use other tools.)
this article I’m going to teach you how to migrate an SVN repository
(including all its history) into TFS using a Git repository.

This post explains why I chose Linode to host my new website (this one) and other web applications I use in my day-to-day work – and why I’d fully recommend them to anyone who needs a virtual server (VPS.)
I struggle with anxiety of varying degrees. Sometimes it just stops
me having a good time with new people because I’m worried about what
they make of me, other times it takes hold over weeks or months,
ever-present at the back of my mind.
This weekend was one of the latter.

Fellow software developers will understand the meaning behind the title of this post.
"Hello, world!" is the typical statement used in programming
tutorials when learning to write software – and it's usually the first
words someone entering the wonderful world of software development will
teach a computer application to say.
It's therefore fitting that the title of the first post on the
brand-new website of a software developer should be these hallowed
