Introduction

Mike Hatfield I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself.

My name is Mike Hatfield and I am a pretty average person. I’ve been developing software for 26 years since the tender age of 14. Remember the days when 128K was a lot?!? Oh, those were the days. I’d power on my CoCo II computer and the cursor would flash on the television screen as if to mock me.

Developing software has been my main passion in life, outside of my wife and our children of course.

Software development has come a long way from the early days of BASIC, FORTRAN 77, and Pascal. Now, my main area of interest is in the web development space. JavaScript, Single Page Applications (SPA’s), Node.JS, and other exciting technologies are flooding the world of web development and I am enjoying the ride.

Professionally, I am the chief technology officer for Nicom, a large independent IT consulting firm in Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada. I’ve worked my way up the corporate ladder, having begun as a junior developer/analyst back in early 1997.

I expect this blog to be mostly a technology blog more often than not around web development.

I hope you find something interesting. If you do, let me know.
