About The Industrious Rabbit

The Industrious Rabbit is by me, John Bintz. I’ve been a software developer for over 20 years. I started this project initially to share some wisdom about my experiences as a developer, but found I was more interested in exploring some of the more off-beat areas of technology, and finding ways to explain them that were interesting and fun. It’s also an excuse to develop and improve my illustration skills. So I guess what I’m saying is that this is a constantly evolving project!
