10 year anniversary of End Your If! 10 year anniversary of End Your If!

Published on Feb 11, 2019

I cannot believe this blog started 10 years ago today. My first post was called: YSlow - Helping slow web pages load faster. I honestly do not even know if that technology is still used. I certainly haven't thought about it in more than 5 years.

I always find it fascinating to scan through my historical articles. Each year you can see a theme of what technology I was using when. For example, in 2012 I was posting heavily about Node.js.

In 2011 I self published my first book about CakePHP. That book would have never come together without this blog, as the very early articles were heavily focused on CakePHP. A PHP library I still use today for many of my sites.

During the 5th year anniversary in 2014 I was focused on using Ninject with MVC 4 followed by unit testing and test-driven development.

2015 contained a lot of great Knockout.js examples (which coincided with my book about the very subject).

In 2016 I apparently didn't blog once, yikes! In 2015 and the start of 2016 is when I wrote two books back-to-back and that was one of the most exhausting things I've ever done.

2017 and 2018 contains a large mix of C# and JavaScript.

So far 2019 is off to a good start with a wide variety of topics staying in my comfort zone of C#, JavaScript, CSS, and coming soon will be a few Git tips and tricks (my source control of choice).

To another 10 years!
