Front End –

Mobile –

Middle Tier –
.net Core

Backend –
SQL Server / NoSQL DB / MySQL

Host –








Big problems in Tech

Ellen Pao – Has Anything Really Changed for Women in Tech? NY Times Op-Ed asks the question.

Susan Fowler – Blog post from February 2017, regarding her time at Uber. Specifically, her first hand recounting of harassment, human resources denial, and sexism in the work place.  (Mentioned in the above Pao article.) Reflecting on one very, very strange year at Uber. 

Note well. Something is wrong in tech culture.
