About me

Howdy. My name is Jay!

I am a husband, father, friend, and otherwise normal person living the dream in the suburbs of Portland, OR. 

By day I am a software engineer for a fortune 100 company. I enjoy code and logic and thinking outside the box when it comes to solving problems with technology. I am passionate about teaching the younger generation to be creators of technology rather than consumers. 

I have benefitted greatly from the generosity of other software engineers and their contributions to the open source community. Open source has allowed me to turn a hobby into a career. My intent is to use this blog to discuss many of the coding topics that come up in my day-to-day coding work.

My hope is that you can find something useful here and can benefit in some way from my experiences & projects.
