What to Expect from my Blog

First Blog

Hi, my name is Brad Germain. I'm a software engineer and love talking software development, tech, and gaming. As such, that is the intention of this blog. I find great interest in those 3 topics and plan to post articles that pertain to them. If those areas interest you as well, please check back regularly and follow me on Twitter @bradgermain to see when I post new blogs!

I've been a professional software engineer for over 8 years now. I primarily develop with C# and currently work on Xamarin Forms mobile applications. I have previously developed front facing websites, internal websites, web api RESTful services, and a myriad of other projects. I enjoy trying and learning new things, and what better way to do that then work as a software developer? (Yes, I use software developer/engineer interchangeably)

Before coding, I have always been interested in new tech. Whether it be a shiny new iPhone, gaming console/PC, higher resolution TVs, or anything else tech related I've always had an interest. And to go along with that, I loved playing games since I was real young. I can remember playing Doom when I was around 7 years old. I had relatives that played games and I got the hand-me-downs of computer parts that I could upgrade my PC with. Getting a whopping 128MB of ram was exceptional. Ah, the good ol' days.

Fast forwarding to today, I'm still just as interested in that stuff and plan to share what I learn, what I love, and what I do with you here. Stay tuned...
