Joshua Otwell is a Pipeline Surveyor turned Open-Source SQL Database Developer targeting PostgreSQL & MySQL technologies. Future goals are aligned with Freelance Backend data and web development.


Hello, all. My name is Joshua Otwell. I am a father and husband above all else in life. I am currently involved/embarked on a self-initiated journey from field-related Pipeline surveying data collection practices, to one of open-source database programming practices.


Through enthusiasm, self-taught knowledge of these technologies and continued effort to study, learn and become more proficient in their use, I am excited to be on this journey and look forward to continuing to grow into a SQL Developer role focused on Backend development.


I enjoy spending free time with my family, reading many fantasy novels, loud metal/hard rock music, finding my way around a Linux terminal and playing in exciting tabletop RPG games.


Blogging/technical writing about my experiences in learning new things towards the continued improvement of my future SQL Developer/Backend programming career and that growth is the passion and fuel that drives my site and blog.


Be sure to visit the “Best Of” page to read some of my favorite blog posts.


By all means, contact me if you are interested in collaborating on guest blogging, technical writing, and content creation for your site. You can see examples of completed client projects over on the Portfolio-Projects page.


I am highly interested in guest writing/blogging to gain experience in the field of SQL Developer/Technical Writer.
