About this blog
Hello, internet! My name is Giorgio Arcamone, and I am a software engineer from Connecticut.
Haters can hate all they want, PHP is pretty great.
Regarding education, I'm a self-taught programmer, and hold a few certifications - ZCE from Zend and Scrum Master from the Scrum Alliance. I also attended Western Connecticut State University. While at WestConn I joined Zeta Beta Tau, and climbed the ranks to become Zeta Theta's Chapter President. Social/service organizations like those found in greek life play an important role in teaching our youth the value of giving back to their communities; I am grateful to have had this experience, and encourage others to do so.

I'm also an open-source enthusiast. Wanting to learn more about computers, I picked up a few Linux distributions and dove right in. These days I'm a fan of Debian as far as Linux systems go, but I'm also a huge fan of FreeBSD. There are some really excellent features like the Ports tree, ZFS and Jails.
You might say I'm a devil's advocate.
With all that said, I hope to use this blog to "share the wealth," and shed some light on topics I'm interested in.

Or if that's too old-school, LinkedIn is pretty popular these days.
