hello, world

every software engineers’ first lines of code in a new language

“Hello, world” is a declaration; not just to one self, but to everyone else.

  • hello, I’m here. And I’m aware I’m not alone.
  • hello, my actions are not gibberish. I want to be seen and understood.
  • hello, I want to stop obsessing about what to say and start the conversation.
  • hello, I’m trying something new that’s outside my comfort zone.

I don’t know how many times I’ve written “hello world” in this blog just to delete the post a little while later. I get busy or lazy or tired or worried; the CSS on this site has stopped me from starting far too many times. But let’s stop with the excuses. It’s time for a beginning. And it starts with this.

hello, world – I’m here.
