I’m Pete. I'm an independent consulant, writer, and remote web developer based out of Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Before setting out on my own, I spent over ten years working as a software developer for companies like Amazon, Cigital, Tapestry solutions, and Surge Forward. My time in the industry has taught me many things about the software development process, business, and people.

Software is a tool that exists to serve people. In order to help people solve difficult problems, software must have three fundamental qualities:

  • Software must be secure.
  • Software must be robust.
  • Software must be maintainable.

My work is an embodiment of these three principles. Through both educational resources and hands-on software development, I hope to help software developers and product owners alike realize that well-built, high-quality software is an asset, not a liability.

If these principles resonate with you, check out my articles to find out what we’ve been thinking about, my case-studies to read about some of my favorite projects, and my services pages to find out how I can help with your current project.
