What's Happening

Pen Blade LLC is my personal site for sharing what matters to me or whatever tangent I'm on today. Coding, gaming, writing. Don't expect anything consistent here as I primarily use this site to test whatever technology happens to grace my fancy. I'll add links to some articles later.

Current goals: Create an ASP.NET Core WebApi 2 to manage requests for page contents.

Stir Trek is a great conference for introducing developers to the latest trends, standards, and especially for addressing pain points. The icing on the cake is to watch the currently trending Sci-Fi blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Seriously, we come for the sessions... I am Groot!
