Since 1992 I’ve been gainfully employed in the IT industry.  My roles have ranged from a C/Unix programmer, to project manager, and most recently web developer.  As a professional, full stack web developer I’m always learning, evaluating, and using new technologies.  Many of them are specific to web services but some are general purpose computing tools.

Since I took a 12 year break from coding to manage projects I understand how frustrating it can be to learn new web technologies.  It often seems the online documentation for open source tools assumes you already know a lot about how web services work.  To bring up your own web server you need to know something about system administration, web server configuration, databases, etc.

Frequently while I’m learning a new tool I run across something that’s poorly explained or not explained at all.  My goal in creating this blog is to help other people get a grip on the technologies I’m learning or have learned since getting back into development in 2013.  Maybe I can help you understand them more quickly than I did?

It’s my sincere hope you’ll find something useful on this blog.  If there are topics you’d like to see covered or specifics you like explained I’d love to hear about them.
