Year in Review – 2009

The day was January 23, 2009. It was my last day working with a great company; Drum Workshop (DW Drums) was my first desk job. Before then I was a plumbers assistant. Which was also fun, but required dealing with a lot of crap if you know what I mean. I had accepted an offer made by Volusion for a job I was sure was going to start my career in web development. For just over a year I had been working on becoming a web developer. I was reading of books, watching TONS of video tutorials, and staying up until 3am everyday practicing my skills. I learned a lot in a very short amount of time. Then came January 26th. I was starting my new job that and it drained me beyond what I had expected.

Site Launch – Sí TV

I’m really excited to announce that newly redesigned SITV.COM is live! It was built using a content management system (CMS) known as Drupal. Learning the ins and outs of Drupal over the last few months has been great. I now feel like I have a good grip on working with the CMS. At times, things got frustrating, but always rewarding when problems were solved. I take with me the experience and the knowledge. I am now able to work with both WordPress and Drupal! Of course, WordPress is still my favorite.

In any case, please enjoy the new SITV.COM
