About this Blog
Welcome to "Hello.World".
I am a web developer living in Auckland, New Zealand with my wife Sonja. I currently work for SiteHost and also do some consulting and mobile app development in my "spare" time under the umbrella of iMatt Solutions. If you prefer a newspaper style approach to reading news then feel free to follow my page on Scoop.it.
I started this weblog in December 2005 at the request of other developers, friends and workmates who wanted to keep in touch, and to hear my ramblings from a distance.
It is my hope that the content of this weblog is informative and helpful. My goal is to share my thoughts on trending topics in the mobile and web community, with a focus on:
- Web 2.0
- Mobile Platforms
- Online Software
- LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP)
- iOS and Android
- Latest Development Ideas
From time to time I may post some personal content – but that is certainly not the purpose of this blog.
Out of interest for those who are not programmers – the phrase "Hello World" is typically used in the first bit of code a programmer ever writes. Most programming languages have tutorials that demonstrate how to output "Hello World" as a phrase to the screen or browser (see here). And yes, the "dot" in the middle of Hello.World is deliberate and bears a resemblence to the syntax used in many Object-Oriented programming languages.
Anyway – I'll leave my ramblings for the content I post. I hope you enjoy this site, and I wish you all the best. If you have any feedback or suggestions for this site please let me know.
