Finding My Way Through Blogging
Bernardo Castilho, Chief Technology Officer
Bernardo Castilho

It started with an idea, one about custom components. The goal was to put out to the community a document that would describe the entire process and technical problem/solution. Would it be a white paper, would it be a blog, or would it be a webinar? It was from talking with fellow developers at events, that I knew my words would not be wasted and that just like me, they truly craved to consume others deeply technical experiences.

So the journey began, and that one blog turned into a series of blogs. Admittedly, it is something that I find rewarding, and if you are still considering becoming a blogger, this is the time. There are many resources to help you, Scott Hanselman’s blog offers great inspiration, and there are checklists and tips on our website.
