Biography

photo of Jordan I am a software developer living near Seattle, Washington. I am currently working as Software Development Manager for Amazon.com on the Kindle Store team (we’re hiring). My development experience involves a lot of JavaScript, PHP, Perl, Node.js, and Java. I have a Master of Science and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Systems from the University of Washington and Associate of Technical Arts degrees in Computer Information Systems and Web Development from Olympic College. You can look at my resume for the more boring details.

I’ve been married to my beautiful wife, Jackie, since 2007, and we had our first daughter, Jadyn, in 2011. Every day with them is a blessing.

Colophon

This website has gone through many iterations. I’ve built numerous custom blogging applications and tried a few hosted solutions (Tumblr, Wordpress, etc.). I’m currently using jekyll to generate the website and S3 to host it. I’m using redcarpet for Markdown processing, Pygments for syntax highlighting, jQuery for AJAX and DOM magic, TypeKit for fonts, moment.js for displaying dates, html5shim for coaxing IE to behave, Sass for making CSS fun, and Closure Compiler for minifying JavaScript. I’m fetching recent tweets and tracks via a custom Heroku-hosted Node.js app that uses twitter-text-js, node-oauth, async, and aws-sdk.
