Some time ago I came across Simple Programmer. This is a great blog from John Sonmez about software development: Making things simple. I subscribed to the site and one day I got an email from John with a Free Start Your Blog course. This course is the reason I am starting this blog today.
This course gives you the basics on how to start your own blog, and most importantly, how to keep up with it. I have tried in the past to start my blog, but I only got one entry and never got back to it. Now with the tools John provided me in this course I’m sure the story will be different.
And, as John’s site name says, the course is Simple. You will find good advices to start blogging and also good advices on how to overcome some problems that you will find. You will have homework too and if you have questions or want to know anything more you can email John and he surely will answer your email (I sent him some emails and I got a response).
I highly recommend you join the Simple Programmer community. In my case I feel identify with what John writes and these posts have helped me to start my way to become a better software developer and to go the extra mile.
Also if you have the opportunity, you should watch John’s Pluralsight courses. His Introduction to Android Development course made me shift my development career to the mobile development. I also took Practical IoC With ASP.NET MVC 4 course and finally understood Dependency Injection and Inversion of Control.
Finally, I want to thank John for his work and the help he has given me to start moving forward in my career.
