Hi! I'm Roberto. I'm a software engineer in the Chicagoland area. I do a little bit of everything, including backend, frontend, (a little) mobile, some database work due to limited DBA resources, and I'm starting to learn more about software architecture and where I want my career to go.

Over the years I've found that I really enjoy teaching people. The only problem is that I'm not particularly adept at explaining concepts that make perfect sense in my head. Getting the words out in a coherent manner seems to escape me. So I'm starting this blog/personal site in order to teach others and, in the process, learn how to teach!

This may very well end up being a bunch of tutorials in the void with no one to read them, but if anyone happens to stumble across one of my tutorials and leaves with a solution to a problem they're having, or having learned some new tricks or tech, I'll be happy!

Thanks for reading, void :)
