Since 1992 I’ve been gainfully employed in the IT industry. My roles have ranged from C/Unix programmer to project manager and most recently web developer. As a professional, full stack web developer I’m always learning, evaluating, and using new technologies. Many of them are specific to web services but some are general purpose computing tools.
Since I took a 12 year break from coding to manage projects I understand how frustrating it can be to learn new web technologies. It often seems the online documentation for open source tools assumes you already know a lot about how web services work. To bring up your own web server you need to know something about system administration, web server configuration, databases, etc.
Frequently while I’m learning a new tool I run across something that’s poorly explained or not explained at all. My goal in creating tech.dougcouvillion.com was to help other people get a grip on the technologies I’m learning or have learned since getting back into development in 2013. Maybe I can help you understand them more quickly than I did?
Lastly, tech.dougcouvillion.com isn't just for developers. I frequently write posts explaining various technologies so non-technical audiences can understand and use them.
I've been dabbling in photography almost as long as I've been involved in software development. At blog.dougcouvillion.com it's mostly just photographs with a few short lines of text.
Most of my photography is based on natural subjects but there's a little bit of everything on the blog. I hope you'll enjoy the photos and find something on blog.dougcouvillion.com that inspires you.
