Justin Dearing has been an IT professional (read: gets paid to play with computers) since around 2002. He started as a third shift iSeries (formerly AS/400 now IBM i) admin. He ran away from that, became a UNIX admin, did some PHP and eventually spent most of a decade doing .NET and SQL Server. He spent the about a year doing Python before September 2015 as well.
After a layoff in September 2015 he finds himself coming full circle doing mostly PHP and DB2 development on the IBM i. What a long strange trip its been.
