So what’s this site all about?
This is my very own little piece of web “real estate”. And to be honest, this is only my second post, so I have no idea what it might turn into or where it’s headed. In general, as you could guess by the name, it will definitely include all things related to building software.
I do plan to post on build topics, such as continuous integration (CI), build tools, build engines, lean manufacturing, and such. Some posts will be idea driven, some will be lessons learned, and others will ask questions and hopefully I’ll get feedback from people like you!
Is it JUST about builds?
Definitely NOT! I don’t want to bore you to death with really technically, really specific details solely about build. I’m a computer geek, so I am drawn to new and innovative technologies, engineering and development practices, video games, superhero movies, IDEs and text editors, and cool desktop background!
What’s so special about thebuildninja?
What I think differentiates my ideas, perspectives, and opinions, is that I look at the world through my build goggles (okay, they’re really just some glasses from Costco). Things that are REALLY important to me (and probably build engineers in general), are often not even considered by developers. And things that are REALLY important to developers may be less so for me.
So I hope to put a fresh spin on some of these things and maybe open your eyes a little to what happens AFTER you type “git push origin master”.
