My name is Michael James Watt. I am a mature (ok, chronologically) individual with a somewhat eclectic range of interests. Among these is a love for coding in various languages, though I also spend lots of time reading (SF/Fantasy mostly), internet gaming (huge classic EQ fan) and enjoying music (mainly 60s – 90s stuff). My passive interests have slowly been morphing into active ones. I hope to produce a novel some day and I’m a sometime NANOWRIMO participant. For many years I have been struggling to learn the guitar. Persistence pays off, and for the past couple of years now I don’t throw up when I play. My love of coding is beginning to push me into adjacent areas, I have written a small app for Windows Phone called Hidden Pass and one for Android called Media Query Results. Now I’m starting a blog about coding.
Writing this blog also allows me to do some good for others out in the world. I don’t promise that all content will be in depth – often it will be introductory in nature, but in these cases I will also include links to places where more in-depth knowledge can be pursued. I also do not promise that the blog articles will be error-free, but I will attempt to correct any outright errors that come to my attention. I hope you find the articles herein to be interesting and useful in your own lives.
