It's not much to look at as of yet, but welcome my blog anyway. My name is Chris W. Hansen, and I'm a computer programmer by trade. Others would demand the title "Software Developer" or "Software Engineer", and they are fine titles, but I feel that programmer is a term that sufficiently describes what it is I actually do. Besides, whenever I tell someone I'm a Software Engineer, they inevitably say something like, "Oh... so what is it exactly that you do?"

In future posts, I plan to discuss various aspects of computers, technology and programming, including programming languages, techniques and computer science theory (you know, the "fun stuff"). Right now, I'm in the process of learning an exciting (to me) language called Scala, so I imagine many of my posts (at least initially) will be on that topic.

I'm relatively new to blogging in general, so any tips or advice as I go along are welcome.

Before moving on to my next post (when it arrives), you may want to brush up on Scala. Here are a few links to get started (in no particular order).


  1. Hey Chris

    Welcome to blogspot, I'm looking forward to reading your posts on Scala.

  2. Thanks for the comment on multi-touch usage on MB's. I really enjoyed reading it! I'll be adding your blog to my RSS. Again, thank you! I hope to be learning about Scala now :)
