About the Author

Photo of Dennis MojadoDennis Mojado is an inquisitive and continually fascinated software engineer. He has specialized in Internet applications and networked systems, having worked in the tech industry for over 23 years. Dennis currently works as a Senior Manager for Software Engineering at a large company in the Greater Sacramento Area. Prior to this, he served various roles in Silicon Valley companies in engineering leadership, site reliability, systems security, and has coded lots of interesting applications.

Dennis helped build startups that still profit and help people today, survived the early 2000's "dot-bomb" while helping companies succeed, saved organizations millions of dollars by being on-call, and has traveled internationally in the name of the mobile revolution.

Here is Dennis' resume.

Outside of office life, Dennis is an avid cypherpunk, reader, writer and author, and was known for old school (film) photography, gelatin silver print-making. Dennis loves tinkering with DIY electronics projects, producing electronic music, amateur radio, strives at cycling and mountain climbing (although he fails at both, miserably); enjoys nature and camping, riding a Harley, field recording, and of course, laying down caffeinated code. He lives south of Sacramento, California with his wife, stepkids, and several rescued feral cats.

The time has come for a resurgence of caffeinated code!

About Caffeinated Code

Photo of network cablingCaffeinatedcode.com started out in early 2000 as a router/webserver personal project hosted at home using a CyberMax tower PC on a static DSL connection. It was pre-wiki, but was intended to be a repository of easily forgotten information: Solaris x86 configuration notes, Oracle admin SQL scripts, unix shell scripts, java code snippets; and also stored some disaster recovery utilities for easy accessibility.

Nowadays, this site is Dennis' main personal application server and contains production releases of tinkerings and non-work projects.

This site's original About page read:

Sipping my coffee, I thought, "Man, this is some intense caffeinated code!". The idea stuck and within a day, caffeinatedcode.com was registered.

Caffeinated Code once resided on a fairly buff system in a high-availability colocation facility. It was a FreeBSD appserver in The RealSoonNow.net Colo Cooperative, a co-op run by an inventive group of former UC Berkeley coworkers.

It now runs on its own cloud instance.
