First, let me introduce myself.
I'm a brazilian author of two other blogs, Simply C++ and Blogaro! and passionated about development and programming languages.
I was thinking about writing a new blog - Thiago Cafe and I've been asked why. Let me answer here.
My other blogs are written in Portuguese. Now, living out of Brazil, I cannot show my posts to my co-workers and the people reading my other blogs in Brazil feel better reading in Portuguese. There's a win-win situation here. I write in english and it will be a great exercise to practice writing in a foreign language and also I'll be able to show the posts to my new local friends!
I wanted to learn D. The best way to learn a language is writing code. That's what I'm doing right now. I decided to write this blog software in D. Another great win-win situation
Language - last time!
I heard: Why D ?
I thought: Why not D ?
I said: Because the language has some very nice features. (This is true!)
Other thing I heard: Why don't you get a platform instead of writing from scratch ?
I said: Because writing from scratch is awesome!
What I intend to write about ?
With this blog, I'm first start writing about writing a blog system. This is just like web development, but not quite like it. I'm, as I said before, writing from scratch.
When this blog system gets some maturity, I'm planning to write about other tech-related stuff, like languages, functional programming, etc.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy the evolution !
