Wow. More than 2 months since I last blogged. Which is the longest period of silence this site has ever seen. What gives? Is codestore dead? Does anyone care? Well a couple of you do. Enough to email me and ask if I'm ok. One even to say it's like he's "missing a friend", which was nice. One asked if I was still alive and I had to resist temptation of replying in the guise of my widow.
The simple reason is I'm just way too busy to find the time to write on here. I'm working weekends and setting the alarm for 6am each day.
The bigger reason is probably a waning interest. It saddens me to admit it but, after nearly 11 years (or is it 12?) the driving passion I once had is now in question. Kind of. I still have the passion for technology and for sharing. I just don't know where I am right now. I'm in that strange place between knowing which technology my future lies in. Is it Domino? I doubt it, long term. Is it SharePoint? Perhaps. More likely, for at least the foreseeable future it will be Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
Dynamics is quite a nice product and feels like a much more natural technology to migrate to than SharePoint ever has done to me. In fact, as a Domino developer, it feels like quite a familiar way of developing.
I have a few more Domino-based things I will definitely make a point of sharing, but I also plan to talk more about what I'm learning in other technologies. I can't see myself ever not running a blog. It's just going to have to wait until things quieten down for me.
Don't give up on codestore completely. Not just yet anyway.
