Welcome to my blog.  My name is Jon Seeley and I’m a full-stack senior software engineer.  I’ve been working in a Microsoft-based technology stack since .NET 1.0.  Throughout my career I’ve primarily focused on the web stack (ASP.NET WebForms, ASP.NET MVC, ASP.NET Core, heck even Silverlight).  On the front-end I’ve used jQuery, angularJS, Angular, and React.  My experience has also crossed boundaries into WinForms, WPF, WCF Services and console applications.  I’m sharing here some of what I’ve learned and continue to learn.  Learn more about me.
