Introducing Henry Khaw

Saturday, March 15, 2008 6:22 AM

So as part of the community helping him out with going to Dev Teach, we're putting a few  requirements on his plate. For one, he has to do a guest post introducing himself (which is below). Secondly, he'll need to set up a blog of his own to keep everyone filled in with how Dev Teach is going (Hey Jeff, can you help a brutha out?).

So, without further ado, here is Henry's guest blog post:

My name is Henry. I am a student enrolled as a Computer Science Major for University of Manitoba perhaps also with a business minor. Right now I am currently in my 3rd year of the program and working towards that nice BSc plaque. hmm...what else about me... I like long walks on the beach, dinner and a mov....uhh oh whoops wrong blog.

Although I may have come to terms that yes...I am now a part of the "geek" community, I like to make it a part of my life to convince others that Computer Science is cool and that yes in fact you can live a double life...geek by day..star player by night.

Lately I've felt that everything seems to be coming together with my career/education. Before it was just oh yea, I like computers, I'm decent at programming and I'll admit it, can be dry and boring at times, but now I find that I value it more and more. Now I attend community gatherings such as Develop Mental Game Camp, Winnipeg Code Camp, there is the Microsoft Heroes Happen Here thing going on, Dev Teach is shortly underway, and this is all happening too soon too fast. A year ago I'd never think to join any of these camps, or network with the community but now I feel like it is a part of me and it's great. It is definitely all about giving back to the community and about developers helping developers because in the end we are all in it together.


"Star player by night"...oh man...I can just see Justice writing a huge blog post about that one comment now...

Don't forget my other condition. He has to present at a user group meeting following his visit to DevTeach. 3/15/2008 10:00 PM | Kyle Baley

no no no Cam. *THAT* crown belongs to Justice. I verified this with my own eyes last November at DevTeach!

Don't get me wrong...D'Arcy is good...but Justice is the seething cauldron of heavyweight metro sexual playa champ of the Northern Hemisphere
