Hey! 👋

My name is Aaron Bos and this is my blog.

What do I blog about? Great question!

I’m a software engineer by day so you’ll mostly see posts, some technical and some not-so-technical, relating to my interests in software and technology.

If you’d like to chat about a post or provide any feedback (postive or negative), connect with me via the social links at the bottom of the page! I hope you enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoy writing them.
