Roger Stringer   About ▾

I'm Roger Stringer, a DevOps engineer, developer, author, chef, speaker, dad. Founder of Flybase.


I’m Roger Stringer, and I’m a DevOps Engineer, full-stack software developer, writer, and speaker in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada.

This blog is where I write and share. You will see everything from reviews, posts about tech and design, to food.

I’m the founder of Flybase, a real-time app platform that enables developers to quickly build apps without having to worry about the backend stuff. You can find me blogging at the Flybase Blog on various topics, and also at the MVPin30 blog.

I also work heavily with Twilio, PHP, Node.js / JavaScript, NoSQL, APIs, DevOps, and WordPress, so you’ll see some posts about all of these on here, as well as a variety of other topics.

I’m also a dad, music lover and a chef. I spend my spare time doing fun stuff with my daughter, and cooking up new recipes to post on here as well as on my food blogs.

I’m also a type-2 insulin dependant diabetic, so once in a while, you’ll see some posts related to that as well.
