A Quick Intro

Who am I?
According to my HR file, I'm a "Principal Program Manager" in the Developer Tools organization. Concretely, what I do is run Outbound Marketing for a very cool product--NetBeans IDE!
On a personal note: I'm Nigerian by origin; born in China; raised and educated in New York City; and currently living in Prague, Czech Republic, where the development hub of the NetBeans project is located.
Why am I blogging?
Good question! By nature, I'm a writer, a storyteller, a communicator. I enjoy telling and hearing stories. Stories are a great way of connecting and sharing experiences and knowledge. My intent is that I get to do that again on this blog.
Yeah....well, this is my second try at a "work blog". I started one a few years ago, but I was a perfectionist about the matter and produced a grand total of three entries before shutting it down. A pity too, because even with three entries I had already acquired some fans!
This time around, perfection is not the goal. Just consistency, and the patience to find my groove.
Also, I'm inspired by the blogging discipline of my NetBeans teammate Geertjan Wielenga. As of this post, he's clocked in eight years of entries about NetBeans!
"Go for it!" He said, when I brought up the idea of writing again.
And so here we are.
