Blogging101: Let’s learn something new

To know, is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.

Socrates

Blogging101 Daily task 3 is to follow at least five new topics and five new blogs in the WordPress reader. What a great idea. I’ve found I’ve learned more from blogs in the last few years than any other resource on the web, and all of its free. There are a lot of people out there that know an lot of stuff. I mean a ton of stuff; And they are happy to share their knowledge for free.

That’s the great thing about the blogging community, people devoting their time and knowledge to share with others. So many times we Google / Bing or Yahoo for answers and get directed to sites that say “subscribe for $10 a month to get to the answer”, I wonder how many people actually sign up without realizing there is a gold mine of free information on the web if you just have a bit more search engine savvy. Admittedly not all of it may be accurate, that’s why it pays to do some research, but its there if you look.

For those of you that are still reading my blog here are some of the topics I followed as part of this assignment:

  • Python Programming
  • Perl Programming
  • Bootstrap
  • Writing
  • Oracle
  • Blogging101 (goes without saying 🙂 )

And if you are still reading, some of the blogs I followed since starting Blogging 101:

I am and have been an Oracle dba for the past twenty something years, with a few deviations to dabble in other areas. I’m certified (or is that certifiable) in both Oracle 10 and 11G OCP. I’m an “old skool” hacker at heart in the traditional sense, pulling apart bits of kit to see how they work, mainly with the intention of fixing it, mostly with the outcome of breaking it! I like toying with hardware, software and new technologies and love Linux, although Windows 10 is looking pretty slick too. I have a keen interest in reading / writing and electronics, and occasionally snap a few photos. If I can help you I will, so if you have any questions feel free to ask by using my contact form. -Lee And now for the disclaimer: Anything I write here is my own opinion and does not represent the view of any company I work for now or have worked for in the past.
