Hey 👋, I'm Joel (LinkedIn, Twitter, Github).

I'm a software engineer focused on building for the modern web using open source software. I live in Bellingham, Washington and enjoy gardening, bicycling, and sailing.

The purpose of this blog/newsletter is to share shortish pieces (≤500 words) related to technology and software engineering. I'm also very interested in technology-adjacent topics, especially subjects that meld computers with social science. I generally err on the side of writing beginner-friendly content. My favorite thing to write is tutorial content.
