About

I’m Roger Stringer, and I’m a web and mobile software developer in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. This is where I write and share. You will see everything from reviews, posts about tech and design, to food.

I work heavily with Twilio, PHP and WordPress, so you’ll see some posts about both of those 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.

I’m the founder and sole developer of TheInterviewr, which launched in July 2011 and has been growing steadily since
