Hello world!


Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!

Hello world is the default sample post in my WordPress installation and has been sitting in draft mode since Dec 19, 2011. Instead of deleting it, I’ve decided to edit it and publish it as my first post. In the programming world, “Hello world” is the most basic program that one can write. All it does is print “Hello world” onto the screen. It is intended to get the student acquainted with the development environment.

Many times I have been overwhelmed with the prospect of learning that new language or that new framework. But I have always reminded myself that all I really need to do is to get “Hello world” working. Once I’ve got that working, I can begin on the next step of my coding journey. I believe that “Hello world” can be applied to other things besides programming. Hello blogging world!
