Hello! My name is Ryan Johnson. I am a software developer, photographer, entrepreneur, and computer scientist based in Memphis, TN. I have been coding since I was 14 years old, back when coding wasn’t cool, and photographing with dSLRs since 2008.
Welcome to my personal and professional blog, where I document and discuss software engineering profession and computer science. I have a fascination with Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) Design (also called UX/UI Design), as well as the nature of information and knowledge, also called epistemology.
I am a problem-solver. I question tradition and challenge the status quo in my pursuit to find the best answers instead of the easy answers. I firmly believe in and promote solving problems through re-design instead of ad-hoc workarounds and temporary solutions. I think about the following quote often, which I encountered during my time at ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital:
“If you hate it, automate it!”
