Joe is a Software Developer based in Central Florida. If it weren't for ticketing systems he would gladly refactor himself in circles all day long.
These days Joe is excited about JAMstack and Search.

I’ll tell you what K9s is, why I like it so much, and what the trade-offs are. I hope that to convince you to give it a shot, and that you’ll love it as much as I do.[Read more…]
