Hi, I'm Forest Johnson, Software Developer and Sequential Read author. Sequential Read is an homage to well designed and highly performant software, as well as a play on words: the blog is a sequence of posts.

This blog started because I was day-dreaming about self-hosting some of the cool infrastructure that I use every day at work. I wanted to put things into practice on my own, and keep a journal of interesting things I find along the way.

I hope to build sequentialread.com into a good place to learn more about computer programming and operating web services, as well as a platform for my own software development and deployment.
