This is my personal blog where I try to share things both technical and otherwise that deserve more than 140 characters. All of the opinions are mine unless otherwise noted. For my technical posts I will always try to provide access to a GitHub project because copy-pasting from a blog sucks.

About me

I’m a college student graduate student programmer software developer software engineer web guy who works at a company doing J2EE/Grails development. I was previously a Flex developer who only dabbled in server-side stuff. I’ve done alot of work with databases because, as it turns out, not many other people want to. I used to write C/C++ but then decided that wasn’t for me.

About the site

As you will no doubt see in the footer, this site is powered by Octopress which I find to be exactly what I was looking for. It is written in Ruby and the content is written in Markdown. I was developing my own custom solution based on some threads I had seen on the net, but in the end Octopress provided all of the functionality I wanted and more with the ability to tweak it to my heart’s content.
