My First Post

Posted by Jake Flavin on May 06, 2018 / Getting Started

Hi, I'm Jake. Welcome to my first blog post!

With new technologies emerging every day, it is hard to keep up with all the updates. Blogs are a valuable resource for communicating with fellow engineers, sharing thoughts and ideas, and keeping up with the recent innovations. Since starting my career, I have referenced various internet sources to aid in my research. I’ve always pondered "I should make myself one of these things." So I did.


About Me

Here is some information you should know about me:

  • I am a Software Engineer.
  • I live and work in the Northern Virginia area.
  • I am currently engaged to my college sweetheart, and we are looking forward to getting married in August.
  • I am an Eagle Scout and enjoy camping, hiking, and swimming.

Connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

About My Blog

This blog is powered by Ghost and runs on an Amazon Web Server. Ghost is a fully open source platform for building and running an online publication. I created this theme myself, and I welcome any feedback, so feel free to send me your feedback.

I want this blog to be a bit personal, professional and technical. So there will be a little bit of everything. This includes technical tutorials, ponderings about life, and some personal stories. No promises, but I will attempt to organize everything by tags.

This concludes my first post. Stay tuned for many more posts!
