My name is George Bridgeman. I have been writing code for a living for almost 20 years. I use this site to occasionally post about technology, programming, and other mildly interesting topics.

After starting my career writing Windows applications in C++ and Visual Basic, I moved into web development using ColdFusion and Java. More recently, I have been writing code in Python and Go.

I have been using Elasticsearch since 2016 and became an Elastic Certified Engineer in July 2019. The Elastic Stack is a component in most projects I work on; getting data into Elasticsearch in a useful format is often a challenging project by itself.
