Kotan Code (枯淡コード) is all about the pursuit of elegant, simple code; building the most amazing and powerful solutions without needless layers of complexity and without excessive code and ceremony that muddies the waters and confuses developers, architects, and pretty much everyone else.

My name is Kevin Hoffman and I’ve been writing code since before I knew how to write cursive. Many of you many know me as “the .NET Addict” or from any of the 14+ publications to which I’ve contributed, including books on C#, ASP.NET, ADO.NET, e-Commerce, and many other aspects of enterprise development. I have since branched out from specializing in just .NET code and the result is this new, improved blog.

This blog post describes what Kotan is all about.
