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 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’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 Coded Geekery blog, which is a more opinionated long form blog .
I’m also a dad, music lover, film buff, comic book collector, and foodie. I spend my spare time building things, doing fun stuff with my daughter, and cooking up new recipes to post on here.
I’m also a type-2 insulin dependent diabetic, so once in a while, you’ll see some posts related to that as well.
- Founder and lead developer of flybase.io, a real-time backend database platform. I also blog regularly on the Flybase blog.
- I also blog at Coded Geekery, which is a longer form, more opinionated blog about finding a work life balance.
- I wrote the Twilio Cookbook for Pakt Publishing (And the second edition too).
This site is coded by hand on a PixelBook. It is running on a Gatsby frontend hosted on Netlify with WordPress running as a headless backend that is hosted at Digital Ocean and using GraphQL to talk to each other.
