Hello world!

20 July 2010

'Hello world!' is probably one of the most famous phrases in the field of IT,  the first thing you read when you create a blog or anything else. Well, it is for this reason that I felt slightly guilty to edit the first 'Hello World!' which i found on my WordPress installation.

It brings back memories of the first programs I ever created - starting from the more outdated Pascal and C, to more commonly used technologies such as Java, C#, HTML and PHP. At the very start the 'Hello World!' seems like it is nothing special; however, it is really welcoming us into a new world every time. From one technology to another, we keep going from its very basic uses to exploring it in depth and discovering its endless possibilities. Well, maybe sometimes we don't go into such depth, but it remains up to us.

I guess in my very first blog I should introduce myself and give you a welcoming 'Hello to my World!'

I have just finished a three-year BSc ICT course at the University of Malta, specialising in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence with Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship as a subsidiary area. In a nutshell it's just ICT - learning how to do some cool stuff here and there. Moreover, I'd like to have the opportunity to read for a  Masters degree.

As  if all that wasn't just about enough, I have also recently been appointed CEO at the only student media organisation on campus - Insite. As the title might show, I carry a lot of responsibility. I will not elaborate for now - as my future posts might further explore this side of things. In the two years prior to taking this role, I was a designer for the organisation, helping out in the printing process of The Insiter. Since the launch of the revamped insiteronline.com, I have been exposed to WordPress. I have also installed a nice widget showing the latest student news from the site. In this way, I will help keep Malta's students updated as well.

For any early readers, I assure you that the site is still a work in progress. However, I felt somewhat guilty about leaving it without a first post - so here it is.
