Christian Coders Network

I found Christian Coders Network to have great forums.
A great place to bounce ideas off of other programmers.
Moral tech questions like: If I can hack it easily, should I?
There are those who want to write games because it is creative and fun.
I am still unsure what a "Christian game" looks like though.

Xian Game programmer

I briefly looked at the Xian Game programmer site.
I just can't bring myself to devote my mind's work toward gaming.
In my experience, a good game must be addictive.
Therefore, if I am a good game programmer I will be writing the software that effectively steels the life from our priority-deficient youth. At best a computer game is a wholesome waste of time... But various problems and puzzles do open our minds to new and creative thought patterns.

Christian-Web-Masters

Christian-Web-Masters. -A really neat site.
I set up a dynamic web site for my church with a ASP.NET community starter kit.
When I moved a few months later, no one cared whether it was up or not.
I am not real sure if I should set it up again.

Tempting MSDN subscription

With the recent release of Visual Studio 2005, SQL Server 2005, and Vista Beta 1, the MSDN subscription looks very tempting. As a k12 employee I could get a [2] year subscription for about $260. Not bad for a "$1199" value.

Communication Consolidation

Looking into the future, It will be a great simplification of our lives to have one dashboard for communication: Email, IM, VOIP, Video Conference, Blog, Calendar, news feed syndication, etc.

I agree with Carly when she said, "... all physical content, all physical processes, everything analog and physical can be and will be transformed into digital, mobile, virtual and personal. "

I see new stateless web services as being a perfect fit to deliver all of the above.

Choosing a Content Management System

I am looking at a few web based content management system solutions for a local school district.

  • DotNetNuke
  • Rainbow Portal
  • Microsoft Sharepoint

ASP.NET

Most of my college programming classes were in C++ or C# and I think that the future of computing is web based. ASP.NET looks like a fairly bright rout to take. DotNetNuke looks like a good platform to start from for multiuser application.

Where can God use me?

I use my tech and programming skill to provide for my family, but should I do more?

Help develop:
  • "Christian Games"
  • XML based Bible search tools?
  • Set up a church web site?
  • A prayer community site?
