I’ve started down the path of Darkness 🙂 In December 2011, I went on BizTalk training with @BizTalkBill and I’m now four weeks into the next stage of my career which is being an Microsoft “Integration Specialist”. You won’t find any open source in this realm, no ruby, nothing involving indie developers cracking out code until late at night. What this change means is getting to know Visual Studio, BizTalk, SQL Server and all things Microsoft.
A friend told me he had dropped his notebook PC, and it was going to cost more to repair than it was worth. I advised: Get a Mac. I started looking around for some information for him. Why would the Mac benefit his Computer Science course? Why would the Mac be more reliable? What does he need to know about compatibility? One of the articles I read was a blog post by The Shepherd’s Sons called “All Signs Point To Apple”.
