A professional full stack software engineering blog.

Chris is in summer chill mode!

Detailed full stack software tutorials, walk-throughs, and more: battle-tested and directly from the front lines of industrial, startup, and SaaS product full stack software development. Learn techniques, patterns, and code that I've used on my dozen+ products I've built in my 10+ year software career.

I'm on a mission to educate 1,000,000* full stack software engineers around the world. Build your skills with hundreds of hours of video content, hundreds of pages of tutorials, and more.

UPDATE JANUARY 2024: We've done it! A heartfelt thanks to everyone who has visited the blog, taken a course, or otherwise supported my work.
