Roger Stringer

Hi, my name is Roger Stringer. I am a full-stack developer, devOps engineer, writer, foodie, speaker. This site is where I can talk, think and share.

I'm also a big camping and hiking enthusiast. When I'm not hanging out with my family or at the computer you can find me camping somewhere in the mountains around the Okanagan valley where I live.
