I am Joe. I’m one of many Joes, but I am uniquely me. I’m the messiest organized guy you’ll ever meet. My glasses are always bent and my hair always a mess. I’ve never had a role model and as such am my own person.
I wrote that paragraph over ten years ago as my “about you” when I first joined Facebook. At some point, I copied it over to my Twitter account and added the following:
Scientist, programmer, Christian, libertarian, and life long learner.
I even hash-tag-ified them - it helps followers find me.
I learned HTML by viewing the source of various websites - most notably a website known as RPGamer.
I’ve been programming since my age was in the single-digits. I started with MS-DOS batch files and eventually discovered that QBasic came pre-installed on the computer I was using.
Today, I program in Java during the day. Sometimes at night, too.
From 2009 - 2012, I blogged at a site I called Hendrices - which is a pluralization of my last name. You can view parts of the site in the WayBack Machine. I’ve also imported some of the old blog posts here on the site.
If you want to contact me, the best way is to shoot a message to me via my Facebook page.
