About Me

My name is Barry Jones and Brightball, Inc was my contract development company from 2008-2012. Although I no longer do contract work this site has become my personal blog.

You're also welcome to buy some things that I highly recommend, such as the best movie ever made, a hilarious cookbook for microwave dependent men like myself, the best travel laptop backpack I've ever owned, an awesome lap desk, some of the best headphones out there for the money or maybe an iPad Mini for the kids?

If you just came here to learn by all means keep it up. Grab a book on Elixir, Phoenix, Go, encryption throughout history, hacking stories or running a business. Thanks!
