  • Hello World

    Welcome to my blog. Peer pressure has claimed another hapless soul. All the cool kids are doing it and who am I to argue with them?

    My name is James Newton-King and I am (at the time of writing this) 22 years old, live in Wellington New Zealand, and am a software developer. You should also know that I'm the kind of person that would spend 10 minutes on Google researching what other people said in their first posts before writing this. I'm not sure what they says about me.

    So whats this all about then?

    Here I'll be blogging about software development in general and .NET and developing on the web in particular. I've learnt a lot from reading other's blogs at and, and articles at sites like Code Project; and I would like to give something back to other new developers.

    Finally, occasionally something off topic might creep in here. It might be about IT. It might be about current events. It might even be something personal. As a request to all both of my future readers, if you ever catch me blogging about what I had for breakfast, please do everyone a favour and tell me to shutup.
