Another Year Another Upgrade

So much has happened since I last (again) stopped updating this blog. I’ve been granted the rare and fantastic opportunity to join the team at Falafel Software as a developer. I’m seriously having the time of my life working on exciting new projects and even new platforms like Windows 8 and Windows Phone!

As a result, however, I did need to make a few life changes. The most important being that I have suspended my freelance services indefinitely (hopefully permanently!) as long as I continue to work with the Falafel team. That time was certainly a fun ride, and I gained a ton of experience that has been instrumental in getting me where I am today! But now I’m happy to be a part of this fantastic team, and dedicate 100% of my time to Falafel and its customers.

In addition, I’ve also folded my Sitefinity Guru blog back into my personal blog, and am going to be shuttering that site, blog, and video series. The existing posts will remain, but since I want to channel all my writings through Falafel, all my new Sitefinity and other software related posts will now be posted on the Falafel Blogs. Specifically you can follow my blog posts here.

This personal blog will remain mostly as a sounding board for my rants (like my recent issues with Nokia and Windows Phone, which by the way STILL continue to vex me), as well as anything worth announcing (like new side projects and music). In addition, you can always find me on Twitter at @SelAromDotNet.

I’d like to thank any readers who found my posts helpful, and I hope you will continue to follow my updates on the Falafel Blogs. If anyone is interested in taking over the SitefinityGuru domain and Twitter account, please let me know, otherwise I’ll just keep it to redirect the old posts into my site.

Until next time (next year probably!) thanks for reading.

Mid Year Update

As expected, this has been a busy year, but a good one. I’ve managed to accomplish or at least begin many of the goals I set out, including updating my site and producing some new music.

A Good Friday Indeed

What better day to log a life update than a holiday. Say what you will about them religious folk (and God knows, I do), but they do make for a good day off

Writer’s Block

I recently updated my website from Sitefinity 3 to 4 in an effort to rededicate myself to blogging and content writing in general (as you probably have already noticed, I suck at writing! more on this later).

2012: New Year, New Look, New Content!

After almost an entire year of distractions, procrastinations, disasters, setbacks, and beer, I finally sat myself down long enough to finally upgrade my site to the latest version of Sitefinity. With such a rapid, aggressive release schedule, Telerik has certainly kept me busy exploring the ever-increasing and always fantastic new features.

But as it does to everyone, the turning of the calendar to a new year has given me an opportunity to reflect, reset, and refocus.
