I ❤ building software. The people, the problems, the users, the business, the language, the learning, the methodology, the architecture. Legacy, greenfield. Cloud, on-prem. Tabs, spaces. I’ve built on, and deployed to, automation and lighting controllers, PLCs, embedded Linux, dance floors, app/web/database servers, package repositories, container orchestrations, CDN, mobile, and desktop. Programmer by night, also by day.
