What is This Blog?

I've been a blogger for a long time. My first blog, called "Pearlbear's blog" was started in 2002. I've had a lot of different blogs, and I currently have 3, this being the one focused on tech. I can't seem to help it.

A long time ago I had a tech blog, which focused primarily on non-profit technology, my main focus for many years of my professional life. I took a few years off from tech, but then returned, and am happy about it.

Now, my professional focus is developing back-end data management systems, using python. I'm also in the process of learning Data Science on my own. So I'll be sharing that as well, plus any fun or interesting tech stuff I get into.

My current tech stack:

  • Ubuntu/Xubuntu Linux
  • Microsoft Windows subsystem for Linux
  • Microsoft Visual Studio Code (an open source IDE I have come to really like)
  • Python
  • AWS tools and libraries
  • Pelican Static Site Generator (used for this blog)
  • Jupyter Notebooks and Anaconda
  • Docker
