A blog by John Rigsby

Hi there! My name is John Rigsby.

You can find me at Mastodon, facebook, twitter, and instagram.

The site image of a top down view of Times Square was shot from the rooftop bar of Hyatt Centric Times Square.

I grew up and live in Florida. I’m a child of the 70’s and 80’s. I have a degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Alabama. That is the design of air and spacecraft. However, I’ve been doing software development for the past 23 or so years and, as a result, remember very little of what I learned. If you don’t use it, you lose it.

I’m a father of a 9 year old. I take him to swim team practice and Cub Scouts. We hike, we swim, we go to Lego Land. This is my life. It is good.

On my blog I will talk about anything. Maybe I’m documenting code that I want to reference later or share with others. It may be I’m talking about politics or reviewing a product. It could all be here. Check out my recent blog posts or go to my blog page.

Work Experience

I’m a full-stack developer for TCR Development, LLC. That means I am a software developer with skills that span the database, to client, to front end UI layers of an application. I can design a database and code stored procedures, write the code for a web or Windows application that pulls the data from the database and organizes it for use by the user interface, UI, layer, and I can create web pages and the CSS and images that style it in the UI layer. I’m responsible for performance, security, usability and functionality of a project from beginning to end. I obviously can and do help out on any aspect of a larger team project.

Often a software firm has people specialize and “silos” off these different areas. I prefer to work on the entire project and currently work for a firm that doesn’t have the number of workers required to silo things off.

I have experience with c#.Net, vb.Net, WPF, Blazor, Crystal Reports, JavaScript, TypeScript, HTML, CSS, SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, stored procedures for all three, and various JavaScript frameworks such as Angular, Aurelia, KnockoutJS as well as controls in both JavaScript and WPF.

Some of the sites I have worked on are:

PlanAdvisor, a site for fund managers to review and run reports on the funds they manage in retirement plans.

YourStatManager.com, a site that allows baseball players to upload data files from various sensor companies to analyze pitch and hitting statistics.

I am also the original developer for Relius Administration’s participant and sponsor web application which is hosted internally or by their clients. I still do work for those clients customizing and augmenting those sites.
