My name is Connor Kuehl! Pleased to meet you 🙂. Before getting too far into introductions, I think you should know a couple of things about me:

  • Being a software engineer is my backup plan. I’m still trying to figure out how to be a hobbit that lives in the Shire in Middle Earth.
  • I’ll never correct you if you pronounce my last name like “cool” instead of “keel.”

I hope you’re not reeling after being told I still don’t know how to be a hobbit in the Shire in Middle Earth. Don’t worry, I’ll let you know as soon as I find out.

If you can’t tell already, I love reading (and Lord of the Rings, in particular). I’m passionate about learning new things, especially computer-y things, so I’m often reading tech books in addition to fiction novels.

In fact, this blog is primarily a learning tool for me as I explore different computing concepts that I find exciting. I’m happy to share these notes with you (and my future self, for when I forget).

Most of my interest areas in software are usually centered around operating systems, computer networks, or infrastructure-related topics.

I spend a lot of time thinking about technology and how it affects society and more specifically our lifestyles (such as relationships, hobbies, etc). This is particularly interesting to me because I spend a lot of time on the computer!

One of my favorite things to do, of course, is write software. I use my programming skills for fun and for profit! For my day job, I am a software engineer at Red Hat. Sometimes, when I’m done at work, I like to contribute to open source software or work on some of my side projects.

If you’d like to contact me, you can do so:
