I’ve wanted to write down some of the things I’ve learned, this list is not exhaustive, nor is it in any particular order, it includes things I like as well as things I’ve done. Some of these things carry no title or certification, just things I learned without regard to how deeply I learned them.

These pages are not about you, I write to remember, to remind myself what I learned. If you see something above that you too want to learn, I’d be happy to do that thing with you.
