It's been a while since I wrote a blog post in here but yeah, for quite some time, my hands wanted to scribble around my thoughts and everything that happened so far in my life.
So what happened during this more than year long hiatus? Well, the greatest contributing factor for keeping me away from my laptop and free from thinking technical aspects is that I suffered from leg pain which I have it diagnosed to the doctors here in Singapore but they haven't had any clue what is really wrong with my feet. It was quite disappointing and everyday, I felt I don't have any drive to do anything useful anymore...
For weeks and maybe months, I've been thinking about what website I would create in order for me
to apply the new technologies that I've learned - well, that is apart from my work. At work, I
can't force everyone in the team to use the technologies that I want because I have to consider
that not everyone is familiar to that and, of course, learning them takes time.
Anyway, a week ago, I had a chat with my good old friend Alexis and out of that conversation,
he suggested that I create my own personal website and use Microsoft Azure as a host for it. It's
not that I'm endorsing Azure but Azure allows you to have 10 free web instances with limited
specifications which you could later upgrade when you that think your site is getting a lot of
traffic already. Currently, it fits my needs because I am just starting up so I don't care much of
the processing power, memory, etc...
