It’s been a long and dusty road, but our website has finally gone live (as you can no doubt tell) and I for one think it’s been well worth the wait. For those of you not in the programming game (most people), the title of this post “Hello, World” is the canonical name of a coder’s first program, so it seemed fitting for our first article to be named as such.
Blogging has become something ubiquitous that many businesses now do as a part of their “web presence”: its roots come from Google and other search engines favouring web-sites with “up-to-date content”. Often (but not always) I find that this translates into a wealth of posts that are either (a) filled with misinformation, opinion and conjecture, or (b) re-posts of unoriginal material found elsewhere. I think there is a danger of many businesses falling into this trap, one I would actively like to avoid: however, this is all “my opinion” and probably fits into category (a).
Therefore, rather than think of this as a blog where we write about our feelings and emotions, think of it as a resource-centre where we try and coalesce our knowledge and experience into a library of information you can search and consume. This will tie in well with our monthly update email (to be released in 2016) where we will trawl the IT techno-waves to find out all the latest news and improvements, to keep you informed about what’s going on.
So to you, the user who is reading this first article, I say thank you for your support, and I hope you enjoy the articles to come: if you learn but one new thing from what we have to say, then this knolwedgebase will be a true success.
