Welcome to my part of the Interwebs

'Let's go Exploring!' by Dave Mathis

By: Dave Mathis

Welcome to my corner of the Interwebs. My name is Corey Wallis, known as techxplorer on various services online. I am a software engineer, working in the Open Source Product Development team at Blackboard and Moodlerooms in Adelaide, Australia.

If you are not familiar with Moodle, it is an open source online learning management system.

The posts here on my blog are about my experiences with technology. It has a particular focus on the software that I’ve written, as part of the Techxplorer’s Utility Scripts repository on GitHub.

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

My blog has been around for a number of years. Every now and then I get the urge to reinvigorate the blog, and change its focus. The most recent reinvigoration occurred in April 2014.

Each time I reinvigorate the blog I delete the old content. It is a way for me to focus on the future, and not dwell on the past.

If you have come to my blog following a link to content that isn’t here any more, I sincerely apologise. I hope you’ll stay for the new content.

Having users comment on your posts is typically part of the blogging experience. But when I reinvigorated my blog  this last time, I deliberately disabled comments. For two 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. Lets see where this journey leads.
