…is a coder for AboutDFIR.com with 10+ years experience in web development. He has worked in a variety of web technologies – specializing in Node, PHP, and databases (SQL or not). He hates SOAP, but loves JSON, and wonders why some developers use more buzzwords than marketing agencies. Over the years, he has done work for a variety of companies, profit and non, working on a variety of projects, internal and external, yet is consistently surprised by the expectations of clients. While both a dog-person and a cat-person, he has recently developed a loathing of squirrels and wishes they were less cute so that thoughts of their total eradication would be less bittersweet. For some reason, he enjoys things that are under-appreciated and getting harder to find – like nature, bookstores, and manual transmissions. He also has a couple college degrees around here somewhere, and they definitely came in handy in the real world and are almost paid for.
