2013 A new year, a new website

After spending a large amount of 2012 writing my book - as well as doing my day job - I thought it would be worthwhile getting myself on-line and share some rants, raves and wisdom (OK maybe just rants and raves). Hence my new website (www.swartout.co.uk) - it's small, simple and I hope perfectly formed (or at least it's a start). I initially just wanted somewhere to blog and for people to discuss the book - following a suggestion from https://twitter.com/ronniek - but it sort of expanded into a website quite literally overnight. As with any agile project it will evolve over time - if you have any suggestions on what should be added / removed / changed please feel free to let me know. 

For my first blog post I was all geared up to publish an article I had written for my publisher way back in Nov - I thought they had forgotten about it - but low and behold they published it on their article network a few days ago (http://www.packtpub.com/article/continuous-delivery-devops-faqs) which is great but doesn't give me much content for my very first post and - unless you hop over to the link above - means there's not a vast amount for you to read this time around.

Over the coming months I hope to make up for that. I've got lots of ideas, suggestions and observations rattling around in my head and now that I have a vehicle to share these with others I'm going to make damn sure I do. I just need to pull them into some sort of cohesive order before I do this - so bear with me.

Happy new year to all and please keep an eye out for new posts.
