About

jon guentherWelcome to my blog. My name is Jon Guenther and I’ve been a technology professional for nearly 20 years. Most of that time I’ve been in software engineering with a discipline in full-stack web development. I’ve served in various industries, most recently in the financial sector.

In addition to my software development experience, I also wrote about forty published novels. Yep, it’s true. I did it as a nice part-time gig for income. A few years ago I semi-retired from writing and publishing. I still write science fiction as a hobby despite the fact I don’t have a cool British accent. Recently after reading some content by John Sonmez, creator of SimpleProgrammer.com, I decided to take this site in a completely different direction and start blogging about my experiences with the Microsoft .NET Core framework.

 

 

20160918_104309ABefore I got into technology I served in the U.S. armed forces. Following that I was a firefighter-paramedic for eight years. In 2000 I left the EMS field to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology. Currently, I reside on the Gulf Coast of Florida and work remotely for a firm that develops web and mobile banking applications for the Credit Union sector. I spend my days at home writing code and managing other developers under the watchful eye of Maggie May (pictured left). When I’m not working or writing, my hobbies include learning a new programming language, reading, swimming, martial arts, listening to classic rock music, or binge watching television shows from the 80s and 90s on Netflix. I’ve also been known to sit on the white sands of a Florida beach and enjoy a tall, cool mojito.
