At the end of 2008 I had a clear mission for what I wanted to host on this domain. The idea of a "code snack" was born out of an observation that there needed to be a resource that provided small easily digestible pieces of information about software development. The definition of code snack is clear and concise:
code snack - [kohd snak] - n. - an easily digestible morsel of programming related information
However, despite having a clear vision and a solid definition, this site has only produced two snacks related to Windows 8 design:
- Metro Snack #1: Choosing XAML or HTML5 for Windows Developer Preview apps
- Metro Snack #2: What is WinRT?
These were written in January 2012. We're a third of the way into 2015 and as someone I respect a ton says frequently: "It's later than you think."
This blog got me started on a path that has certainly led me to where I am today but I can't say that it has lived up to its potential as the resource I defined right before the start of 2009. A very important person in my life recently rekindled this idea and I want to make sure I follow through this time.
Over the next few weeks I'm going to be brainstorming some topics that would make for good snacks but while I work on that I could use your help. What kind of topics would you like to see explained in short easily digestible chunks? Hit me up on Twitter @brentschooley or use my contact form if you have any ideas.
Here's to many snacks in the future.
