Hi, my name is Joe Shaw, and I’m a software developer living in Columbus, Ohio.
I work at litl, where I am the software team lead for our server team. We build and operate the backend services and infrastructure powering Room for More and the Imagefly on-demand responsive image service.
You can learn more about my software projects past and present on my about page.
I blog infrequently. Some selected posts are below.
