The birth of this project came from a very simple fundamental formula of life – "EEE". Do not misunderstand EEE with Electronics and Electrical Engineering, but it is "Envision, Explore, Expose". When I started off this project 5 years ago, my primary intention is to create a platform for myself where I can experiment and learn new things. I used to experiment with most annoying requirements (I used to create them for myself) one can think off. I created POC’s for long running web tasks, implement chat in ASP.Net, tried to host ASP.Net Pages outside IIS etc. Fortunately some of my early nitty-gritty POC’s were actual realities now (don’t get me wrong, I never created SignalR, Katana etc.,). Thanks to the extensive developer community (both proprietary and open source) for these wonderful innovations.
Now looking back at 5 beautiful years with technology, I feel proud and at the same time I regret (I am not talking about my past/present employers). The main reason to regret is that I was not able to predominantly contribute to technical community in a larger extent. This is the main reason, I am more focused on "EEE" like never before. In this approach I am going to collaborate more with online technical communities, envision prospective opportunities, explore different new technologies and finally provide solutions.
To re-define after its birth 5 years ago, Intstrings is a platform where custom solutions will be delivered for hand picked developer problems. Even though the main vision is to Ideate and Innovate, I wanted to first get started by exploring, understanding and implementing new technical trends. Intstrings is just that first step. Even though this step is a baby step, it will accelerate the future outcomes. At Intstrings, my readers can find typical solutions to common day to day developer requirements, tips for being productive, product and tools evaluations, book reviews, etc., and last but not least provide custom solutions to specific developer needs.
As a next step, I would release small to medium developer products (it can be Nugets, plugins, DLL’s etc.,), through which developer productivity spikes up in less timeframe. I may not be able to tell exactly when I am going to achieve this step, but my roadmap looks promising.
At this junction, I want to give clarity on one important point “All the solutions provided in this website are contextual and works in AS-IS situations”. What I mean is that, they might not work in all given real life situations. My primary intention is to provide a thought process which would encourage my readers to extend/enhance the given solutions to fit their requirements.
I would also urge my readers not think of this site as Q&A forums. Even though I try my best to live up to the expectations, I would suggest to reach out to the community through forums.asp.net or StackOverflow. In fact those places nurtured me to a better professional in technology.
