Who am I?

Hi there! I'm Jordan Nielson, and I'm the creator on this here blog site. I'm hoping to have this site contain all forms of creations that I embark on in my free time, which to start off with will be these blog posts. I'm hoping that by spending more time writing about the things I'm learning and doing (in all aspects of my life), it will help solidify my knowledge and ideally end up useful to someone else as well.

To start off, you should be aware that I'll be blogging about more than just the "tech" things in my life. I really enjoy my job, but it is not what I do all day, every day, so be aware that there will be more personal posts as well. Note that every post is my opinion, and does not reflect on my employer, religion, or anyone else! Ideally I won't offend anyone, but if something I post is offensive to you please let me know and I can work with you to adjust the content (since it is publically available on github), or straight up take it down.

Alright, so at this point you might be wondering who I am (since that is the title of this post after all). I'm Jordan, as I mentioned earlier. I currently work for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (The Church) as a Software Developer focusing on helping and working with the Web Developers at The Church. I've been working here for about a year at this point, and have loved almost every minute of it. I graduated from Brigham Young University (BYU) with a Computer Science degree, and while I was in school I spent a good deal of my time working on websites. I am first and foremost a family man who tries to live The Gospel of Jesus Christ. My wife and I have two sons currently, which keeps me pretty busy.

As a heads up, I do have an rss feed thanks to a wonderful gatsby plugin and the setup provided by the gatsby-eeggheadio-blog-starter. I am hoping to blog on here at least once a week, but it might shake out to be more and might be less. If you have anything you want me to write about, feel free to file a github issue for it!
