I’m Chris Dillon. I live in Portland but I’m from DC. This is my productivity blog. This is where I share things I’ve gotten done, figured out or want to do for myself and others. This blog applies the do it for yourself rule in a major way. If you find something useful here then this blog has succeeded. This blog is also about practicing my craft. Runners train, musicians practice.

This is a personal weblog. The opinions expressed here represent my own and not those of my employer.

By day, I do software development and devops. It just means I’m a jack of all trades. By night, I’m a technologist looking to get better at stuff. But not all the time. Sometimes I just want to build stuff (either real or virtual). I don’t talk about gaming or playing music on this blog. I found that to be not interesting to people (or at least the way I did it).

Sometimes, I do creative coding, procedural sketch toys, sound prod or prototypes. Other times, I actually build tools and toys so solve a problem. I have a lot of other hobbies like a lot of other people but code is the thing I mostly blog about.

I don’t work with recruiters or placement agencies. I’m probably not looking for “a job” but that doesn’t mean I won’t help you.
