About Jeremy Likness and Developer for Life
Browse the source for this blog
My name is Jeremy Likness. I’ve been writing code for a long time… over 30 years! I am a developer for life.
My current mission is to empower developers to be their best. I do this several ways: connecting with community (both online and offline), creating and curating great content, and working directly with engineers. Keep up with my curated content by following me on Twitter. The content I create is mostly hosted here, on this blog!
If you’re curious, I maintain this blog using markdown in a GitHub repository. When I check in the code, my free Azure Pipelines account uses the Hugo generator to produce static files that are deployed to Azure Storage Static Websites. Read the related articles: Hugo articles.
