My name is Jerry Hogan, I have been developing professionally for over 20 years.  Mostly for a small municipality.  I face the challenges and rewards of being the only programmer in this organization.   That’s why I title the blog “The Lonely Coder.”  Please don’t get me wrong I have a great wife and family, its just very few people that understand what I do and why. My motivation here is become and an outlier. I have just finished Corey House’s  course on plural sight on becoming an outlier.  I believe Software is a craft and would like to someday be able to to say I have mastered my craft.
