Welcome to the home of John Roepke on the internet.
Let me introduce myself to you.
I'm a open source, web and app developer based in Boston. Currently I work for Google. You can find my open source projects on Github. At present, I spend most of my spare time writing libraries and tools with node.js and building Android apps.
I believe very strongly in the concept of the free web and the power of open source. I attribute a lot of my opportunities to them. I've always had open access to the internet which allowed me to teach myself a great deal about programming through reading source code, api references and freely available guides and blog posts. This blog and my open source projects exist because I want to give something back to the culture that has given me so much.
