About

meHi, my name is T.O. and I’m a Software Consultant at RedHat.

I write to help people understand technology so that they can build great software quickly.

But if you’re wondering why YOU should stay here, here’s what I think I know about you..

A Little About You

You’re an up-and-coming software developer working for yourself or a company (or both!).

You’re somewhere in between writing your first “Hello World” function and reciting “Clean Code” by heart.

You enjoy technology, but not all the wordy, jargon-filled explanations that sometimes fill the internet.

You just want to know why we use certain technologies, how to set them up, and what the best practices are.

That way, you can choose the right technology for your product and build it quickly using strategies you won’t loose sleep over.

And soon, you’ll be the expert that others can learn from.

(Or, at least the one who can tell them what to “google”)

You’ll start to help people understand technology for themselves.

And when they do, they will build great software quickly too.

Now you’re a hero!

Did I get that right?

Great! I just described myself too.

A Little About Me

I work for RedHat because they focus on teaching people technology instead of just selling them (proprietary) software. Sometimes that’s difficult, but our customers find it extremely helpful. I mean, how else could RedHat make a billion dollars selling free software?

Anyway, I spend most of my time teaching the “whys”, “hows” and best practices of technology. I enjoy the spark in someones eye when they understand a new concept. Of course, when they learn to find answers themselves, that means they won’t need me as much anymore 🙂

But since we still have clients, I’m here to learn so I can become a better teacher. And there’s no better way to learn than by diving in first-hand.

Here you’ll find posts of..

  1. The “whys”, “hows”, and best practices of technologies (with examples)
  2. Solutions to real customer problems (scrubbed for sensitive data. because there’s no wifi if I end up in prison!)
  3. Questions & Answers

I hope you’ll join me for the ride! Feedback is always welcome.
