A Simple Introduction

Hey everybody! My name is Ian Muir, and I’m a new blogger here at SitePoint, so I thought I’d take a minute to introduce myself and let you all know what to expect.

During the day, I’m a mild-mannered web applications developer for a news clipping service. At night, I do a variety of freelance projects and direct client work. My development work is generally in ASP.NET or PHP with frequent forays into ColdFusion. I also consider myself somewhat of a standards evangelist.

Like many web professionals, most of my work rides along the fuzzy line between development and design. When working alone or in a small team, I find it important to have a variety of skills. One day I’m writing data access classes in .NET; the next day I’m trying to get a CSS layout to work in IE6.

My focus on this blog will be very much like my work focus. I’ll be blogging about topics for those of us that do a combination of design and development and some topics to help developers and designers see eye to eye on some of the trickier aspects of building web applications.

Stay tuned; I hope you like what you read here.

    Nice coincidence – I work at a news clipping service in Germany, called PressWatch :-)

    So, welcome dear colleague, should be interesting to read what you’re doing over there :-)

    I’m interested in anyone who has experience in producing standards based ASP.NET, as I’ve just started a major project which requires just that!

    I look forward to your posts and welcome!
