About Me

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 posts about tech and design, reviews, and food.

I originally started this blog back in 2003, and it’s been around in one form or another since then. Older posts occasionally get moved to the Archive.

I’ve been working in tech since 2000 with a variety of companies and projects, and work heavily with a wide variety of stacks. I work with Twilio, PHP, Javascript (Node.js, React, Next.js, Gatsby, Angular.js, Vue, AdonisJs), GraphQL, Hasura, Prisma, Strapi, SQL (MySQL, PostgreSQL), NoSQL (MongoDB, DynamoDB, Firebase, Redis), 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, film buff, comic book collector, camper, and foodie. I spend my spare time building things, doing fun stuff with my daughter, camping in our 1999 Honda Stepwagon, and cooking up new recipes to post on here.

This site is currently running on WordPress on a server on Digital Ocean. I write most posts using Markdown from my Macbook, Pixelbook, iPad or my phone.
