I’ve been on here a while but never wrote an #introduction post so here it is.
My name is Mark thought most people call me JR (J.R. not “junior”). I am a believer and follower of Christ. My passion is #software #engineering and I’ve been at it professionally for over 14 years. Though I mostly develop for the web I enjoy working with the #fullstack including the hardware and architecture of it.
My favorite programming trick.

I love technology but I don't understand the VR craze in terms of a virtual world being the future of how we interact. VR is awesome for the experience it provides and is fascinating how it can so simply transport you to entirely new worlds.
VR is overrated in my opinion. AR was and continues to be underrated. So many people laughed at those using Google Glass but are now strapping a screen to their faces and flailing around in an empty room.
That's not a world I want to build.

Hello! I am coder by profession, who loves to read & write to keep myself inspired. I have been a blogger for more than 15 years, but lost touch with writing when Twitter was at it’s peak. May be I lost love for my words.
Anyway recently IndieWeb got my love for the technology and also writing back. So been working on a lot many Indie projects & writing my heart out at my blog since then. My hope is this place doesn't kill my drive for reading and writing; rather inspires it.
We have now collectively gained 112,413 monthly active users in the last few days, and 149,720 compared to the end of March. That's a 62% increase. Total now at 384K MAU across Mastodon.
My occupation is software developer and project manager.
Currently my hobbies are: programming (on diverse layers), 3D modeling, UAV (aka Drone) stuff, control theory, all kinds of simulations, embedded systems development, a bit of hardware hacking and photography.
#introduction time! I'm a #SysAdmin for a fairly small company that specializes in ERP customization for manufacturing as well as a metrology lab. I spend most of my free time managing my dog, and my personal projects. I also spend a lot of time on #flarum working on development there.
I'm also the #administrator for SysAdmins Zone and SysAdmins Lounge, both of which are social in anture.
Follower of Christ. Continually seeking challenges and solving problems through code.
