Thanks for stopping by! My name is George Edison and I am a programmer.

I began working with PHP at an early age and it scarred me for life. To this day, I’ll never forget the frustrating function naming conventions, parameter order, or the hideous syntax for namespaces. I lived in constant fear of forgetting to escape something or creating an SQL injection vulnerability.

I eventually moved to Python, which eliminated the bizarre naming conventions and replaced namespaces with the concept of modules. I used a templating engine that took care of my escaping concerns. Things were improving.

Then, during the summer of 2015, the idea for this blog was born. I plan to write about software development from the perspective of an aspiring penguin programmer. My hope is that you find these articles useful and informative.
