Things I am thankful for...

In celebration of Thanksgiving tomorrow, i thought i would list out some of things that i am thankful for in the development world.

  • Open source tools
    • RhinoMocks
    • NUnit
    • StructureMap
    • Reflector
  • The great blogs of the blogosphere
  • Having 3 monitors (sooo much better than 2, trust me)
  • Writing fun meaningful code that helps businesses grow
  • That I am NOT doing classic asp/COM+ (worst week of my life earlier in the year)
  • All the new great technologies that are coming out.

Thought i would also mention some non-development items as well

  • My great wife
  • My son, being a father is the greatest thing in the world
  • All my friends and family
  • And of course, having my health (kinda had to say this, it is so Clech'e)

 Anyway, have a great Thanksgiving (for all of you here in the states)

Till next time,
