Welcome to my crib 💯

On this here digital home of mine, I am going to share the occasional tech-related rant. Since I wanted to be writer but ended up a developer, this is what I am writing about here.

The goal of sharing my humble views is to demystify as well as simplify a lot that is going on within the software industry. Add to the mix that I want to keep it light and entertain more than I want to educate, while still giving the one or the other thought-provoking impulse to some. Ideally this can do its teeny-weeny part in democratizing and simplifying the industry some. Elitism is so not my thing.

About me

I’m a fun guy. Obviously, I enjoy developing and tech to some degree (especially the part about being paid for participating in it). On a personal note, I’m a Sagittarius with a Virgo rising, enjoy crocheting and just LOVE cats!

As Public Enemy said it best: ‘Don’t Believe the Hype’.
