My Blog Is Moving

Dear Surfers & Readers,

Hope that all of you are fine and thanks for reading this blog. Have not been writing much posts as of lately but I was busy making some new plans for my new place on the internet.

I had this place on wordpress for these last 5 years, 3 months and 4 weeks. It was nice writing posts on ciappara.wordpress.com but now the time has come to move and be independent. Don’t worry, I’m not going away. I’m just moving this blog to a personal web address. From now on you can find me and my new posts on www.ciappara.com. I had to do this a long long time ago, but now it’s time.

In this blog I write any problems that I face while developing applications and websites. The response from other people having these problems was amazing in that users started helping each other in the comments. I will update my new blog on a more regular pace and also have plans to start making some new fun stuff as well… but i will tell you more on this later on.

Hope to see you all on www.ciappara.com! Btw, what do you think of my logo… any suggestions?

Week Review.. over 300,000 all time views

This week my blog managed to reach a target that I previously set in my mind, 300,000 all time views. Most popular websites manage to reach that amount in only one day. But I’m happy with the result.

Moving Forward

These last few months, I’ve been trying to add a post, if not daily, at least 4 times a week, and am almost managing it, to help more developers with the solutions to the daily problems I find, and other utilities that help users.

During the next weeks I will be shifting this blog to  personal domain name, www.ciappara.com, to make it more customizable. I’ve been meaning to do this for years, but now it’s time to do it 🙂

Blogging Solutions

I have been happy using wordpress for these last 4 and a half years, but now I would like to start using a .Net Blogging solution. This would help make customisations more easily, as I’m a C# guy :), and can add anything I want. I’ve been searching for a few solutions, and I found BlogEngine.Net and Graffiti, or else develop continue developing a blogging engine using Project Nine. I will be testing and reviewing them and let you know what I’m choosing.

But more info on my new blog later. Till then continue watching this blog ciappara.wordpress.com! Thanks for all your reading! 🙂

First month in my New Job

Last month, on the 22nd of February 2011, I started working with deVere-Group as a Web Developer. It’s already been a month and I thought to share my experience with you. It is nice working here at deVere, the people here are great and I like the job, it’s interesting and allows me to gain experience in Finance. I’m working on the Devere Fund Platform which handles the funds of over 60,000 clients around the world.

The only thing that I was worried about when I started was that, since I’m a C# guy, here we use VB.Net for the development of websites and apps. For me it was like “Oopps” but now am getting accustomed to it… and let me say that VB.Net is not that bad 🙂 – though I still prefer C#.

I’m also in deVere’s football team, but till now, we didn’t have a lot of success, but I’m sure we will!! Last week, we got new shirts for our team and I think this will help us! 🙂 Continue reading
