AlwaysMoveForward.com got started when I decided to start writing a blog.  Who am I?  My name is Arthur Correa, and there are a lot of things that I thought I'd like to write about, but I couldn't quite decide what to focus on.

  • I've been architecting and developing web applications and SaaS offerings for more years than I'd care to admit.  I know I have opinions about how software should be designed and implemented, and I also have some good stories about things I've encountered.
  • My family and I are huge fans of all things Disney.  We go to Walt Disney World frequently and I'll be sharing stories about our trips or other Disney related news I come across.
  • I'm a big fan of Ice Hockey and Football so I could always write about my favorite teams (Boston Bruins and the New England Patriots).
  • I've been playing video games for years.  That's partially how I got into programming, and every so often I dabble in writing a graphics engine and making my own game.  I could talk about my efforts there and the games that I'm playing to.
  • I like to read books on Development, Finance, and Fantasy so I could always do some book reviews.

Like I said I couldn't make up my mind, but I knew I didn't want to write about just one thing.  I have more interests than just a single thing.  So I thought I'd just write a blog about all of those topics.  A mish mash of whatever topics I wanted to write about that day. So I went to my hosting provider and tried to add some blogging software to my account.  Well I had some problems.  I had to create a Db first, then I shouldn't have created a Db, then I didn't have the rights to install, no wait I did so why didn't it install?  After wasting more time with their tech support than I really wanted to, I said the heck with it.  I'd write my own blog software.

If you find my blog interesting you can subscribe to it's RSS feed . Like most people today I'm also on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram

So why is it called AlwaysMoveForward.com?  Well, as I mentioned, my family and i are big fans of Disney.  Walt Disney had a great quote:

"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths."

Disney used that quote in a pretty good movie called Meet the Robinsons.  In that movie the phrase Keep Moving Forward was used as the motto the main character.  To help him remember to never quit or give up.  I thought it was a great message.  Unfortunately KeepMovingForward.com was long gone, so I paraphrased it to this.  Its close enough that still conveys the same meaning.  So here I am.
