Intro Post

As people brag on Slashdot: “First post!” Granted, it’s just me, but at least I get to say it this one time.

My name is Eric MacAdie (muh-KAY-dee). I am a software developer in Chicago, Illinois, The City That Matters, and this is my blog.

The purpose of this site is to help me improve my Java skills and keep an eye on what is going on in the Java world. It will also advocate the use of Java, not only for the web but in all environments. I will post content with some Java tutorials for some applications, including some of the Java technologies that I will use to create content for and run this site.

That is all I will say for now. I thought  about what I would say in the first post, but I decided to keep it short. I can always have an “About” page that I can update as needed.

Lastly, as they say on Slashdot: In Soviet Russia, Beowulf cluster of dying BSD machines imagines you!
