My name is Eric Smith. I’m a software developer, currently working for StorageCraft. I graduated from BYU with a degree in computer science in 1993, and have been working in the software industry since 1992.
This site exists so that I can have a place to publish programming articles, thoughts, rants, and applications that might occasionally be useful or interesting to other people — including my future self who, strangely, tends to forget things. If projects at work are in non-coding phases, I do stuff in my spare time to keep the daily coding quota up. Besides, these projects give me a chance to learn and experiment with things that I might not otherwise get to do.
After a while of building this site using an Ant script and XSLT, I switched it over to use WordPress to make posting a simpler process.
A “smithy” is the workplace of a smith, so “esmithy” is this particular smith’s electronic workplace.
