Welcome to AndrewSiemer.com
My name is Andrew Siemer. I am an ex Army Ranger, father of 6, born in California, but moved to Texas as fast as I could. I make my living as a computer consultant, author, and farmer.
In order to meet some of my goals at work I decided to contribute my thoughts around Html Helpers and AngularJs support.
As you may know I recently started a new job at my old company. As the new guy I have been sitting in as many meetings as possible trying to learn as much as I can about the underlying system, our methodology, what is important to the business, how we are going to achieve our deadlines, etc. During these meetings I have heard mention of the “ShortBus” time and time again. This was odd as we are building a system around NServiceBus…an enterprise level message bus (among other things). I was really under the impression that there was some great divide between the engineers “THEM” and the architects “ME” (…and my team). I really thought they were dogging us! Gonna have to push a boulder up hill in order to move a pebble…here we go again.
Today I started a new gig in my old company Dell. I am joining the edell transactional team as one of the architects. I am experiencing some of the slowness that comes with a big company like this. However I am really enjoying the conversations I have been a part of so far and am really enjoying all the energetic conversations that the engineers around me are having.
I am trying my best to get back into blogging. After having moved to Texas and starting my own ranch/farm…I have had difficulties staying focused on technology when I am not work. For that reason I will try to do quick posts while at work…while I am focused on technology.

I am loving the Amazon Web Services platform! They deliver new features constantly to make the platform that much more adoptable. We are to a point now where we have all sorts of disconnected systems floating about in the cloud. All of them have their own scalability story so that they can easily expand horizontally. This translates to having many stacks all with many running instances.
This is going to be a very busy weekend for me!
This isn’t overly interesting but I feel the need to toss up a post on my new site. Today I needed to create a hash and ended up writing the following code.
