Hi! I’m Joe Casabona, a Front End Developer, Instructor, & Course Creator. When I’m not writing code, I’m teaching people how to build things with and for WordPress. You can find my courses over at WP in One Month. I also host a weekly podcast called How I Built It, where I interview product developers and business owners about how they create. In addition to the profession stuff, I love Star Wars, Disney, smoking cigars, and playing the drums.

Words that people use to describe me are: nerd, author, teacher, speaker, and ‘you make websites right?’

I do indeed make websites and really love doing it! I've been doing it since high school and it so happens that I made it my hobby and my profession. If you're interested, I tell the story here on Living Your Passion (around the 7 minute mark). Aside from web development:

I enjoy smoking cigars.

I have 3 brothers, and as a twofer, I am a huge Disney fan.

...and last but not least, I'm a new dad. My daughter is pretty great. 

Fun Fact: If I couldn’t use computers for my job, I’d probably be an animator.

About the Blog

I guess the official start of this thing was in 2002, when I had some space on Geocities and was just starting out in the web dev world. I was in high school, so really it was more like a LiveJournal, filled with teen angst. I mean, you know how high school is. Or maybe you don’t. It’s cool.

Since then it’s evolved from a fake LJ to a place of substance. I usually talk tech, freelancing, and whatever else piques my interest. I’m always up for a discussion, so feel free to add in your two cents anytime you want.
