Welcome to my blog. My name is Corey Wallis, known as techxplorer in various places online.

In October 2015 I started as a Business Analyst in the Student Systems team at Flinders University. Before that I was employed as a software engineer at Blackboard, in the Adelaide, Australia office. My full employment history is listed on my LinkedIn profile, if you’re interested.

I do not post regularly, but when I do it is usually about my experiences with technology. If you are interested in the software that I have written, it is available on my GitHub page.

I also write about my reflections I’ve had about other topics. I discontinued my photoblog late last year, so sometimes I even post photos that I’ve taken.

Lastly I’ve started posting photos of the Gundam models that I’ve been building this year. A hobby that was introduced to me by rurisu hoshino.

You will notice that comments on my blog have been deliberately disabled. Having users comment on your posts is typically part of the blogging experience. Here on my blog, they are disabled for two very important reasons:

  1. Having comments enabled on your blog is like inviting the world into your lounge room and then not liking the mess that they make
  2. I don’t have the time, or the inclination, to deal with the inevitable spam comments

If you do want to comment on something that I write, either email me or contact me via Twitter.

Lastly, many thanks for taking the time to visit, and reading the words that I write.
