A bit about me

Growing up

I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. Weird, right?

I’ve had an interest in computers since I was young. My dad used to make custom computers for people and install LANs in offices before wireless internet existed. I sometimes helped him install hardware and run ethernet cables from one side of an office to the other. He showed me America Online and paid for the Visual Basic book that I wanted so dearly.

About me

About Joe Palmieri
I’m a web developer currently located in Oakland, California. I specialize in improving customer support workflows using Ruby on Rails and Zendesk. My current interests include building JAMstack sites on Hugo and making Raspberry Pis do my bidding. You can find my work in my GitHub and GitLab profiles, check out my activity on Stack Overflow, or see my work experience on LinkedIn. When I’m not staring at a computer screen, I enjoy spinning fire, playing my ukulele, creating industrial art, and brewing beer.
