Hello World!

I've been a proponent of blogs from almost the inception. My personal blog has transitioned across multiple domains and myriad formats, in the eight years I've been maintaining it. That's to say, I enjoy it.

Of course, I felt compelled to create a blog for Quasi Object. Moreover, I felt a need to chronicle my work as it pertains to web development. I'll never claim I'm an expert of anything, but I have been making websites in one way or another for over 10 years. I would like to think I've got a brain packed full of knowledge on the subject by now.

Now, I'm certain every bit of code that passes through these pages will not be filed under "best practices." Though, I've come to realize the these so-called "best practices" are pretty subjective. I'm a standards guy, don't get me wrong. However, as the saying goes: there's more than one way to skin a cat.

To that end, I take criticism fairly well, will readily admit when someone has a better idea and, at the same time, aggressively defend my own position. Nevertheless, I welcome your insights and feedback. Comments are your soapbox.

Mixed in with usual stream of web development discussion will be updates and announcements regarding several internal projects in the works. I won't divulge any details just yet, as nothing is set in stone. Just know: when there is news to report, you can bet it will appear here first.

Lastly, I want to thank the crew at Studiobanks for an enjoyable ride over the past four years and change. I definitely cut my teeth on the industry during my tenure there.

Enough reminiscing, let's get started.


I look forward to your professional rantings and the occasional raves.
