The Talk

Obligatory list of tech and business stuff

It's like a resume, but much more fun.

  • Lots of Programming Languages

    Full languages toolbox thanks to Golang, Clojure(script), Python, HTML, CSS, Javascript, and Nodejs. I've been known to store data in PostgreSQL, MySQL, Cassandra, and MongoDB when I'm desperate.

  • Already disagreed and committed

    I have strong opinions about the bad decisions you've made for your architecture and organization, but let's just get it out there already.

  • Up in the night

    Alarms are ringing, and I'm running in the night because of AWS, Terraform, Docker, InfluxDB, and PagerDuty.

  • Business chatter

    Being an entrepreneur means I know sales and marketing are more important than development. Just don't tell the other developers.

What my clients think

See? I really am good at this.

Janet is a true professional, she's highly productive and produces exceptional work. We'd jump at the chance to work together again.

Anson MacKeracher
Co-founder and CTO, LegalMate

Janet is awesome. She digs into business requirements and helps clarify them. Fire and forget and I know the work will get done with solid code that’s clear and maintainable with trade-offs demarcated.

Recommended with a cup of coffee.

Frequently asked questions

What is your rate?
I prefer to do fixed price billing on a per project basis because if I screw up I don't want to charge you per hour for my mistake.
Will you work for exposure, snake oil, or anything else of dubious value?
No. I typically transact in Canadian or US Dollars.
Isn't it kind of lame to build a personal website with Tailwind-ui?
Tailwind-ui is a great product. I'm trying to get my money's worth here.
What is "Adhesive Digital"?
Just my business name. Makes me look like I'm kind of important on the internet.
I'm confused, are you advertising a blog or your skillset?
Both! I thought it might be fun to say, look how smart (or dumb) I am, and then write about it.
Why is the design of your blog posts so different from this page?
I designed my blog CSS to be optimized for readability. The look and feel I wanted was akin to reading a book.
