Jason Caldwell (PHP/JS Developer)


My readers enjoy articles that explore ways to increase productivity, articles about programming in general, and anything else that’s design or developer-oriented. If that describes you, subscribe via email. I’ll share quick tips, my opinions, and some crazy ideas I get while conducting research.


{ about: ‘Me’ }

@jaswrks I’ve been a full-stack developer & entrepreneur for nearly 20 years. So I’ve worked on projects of many sizes using a number of technologies.

My favorite programming languages are TypeScript/JavaScript, PHP, and Ruby.

Aside from ‹src.works/›, I’m known for creating s2Member®, an e-commerce platform for WordPress, and I founded WebSharks™, the company behind Comet Cache™ and WP Sharks™.

Beautiful Alaska 🏔️

I work from home atop Hatcher Pass where the average temperature is lower than you’d like. I love it though — the landscape, the snow, and the wildlife too. Life is adventurous here and that suits me just fine.

macOS & Software I Rely On

I begin my workday on a Mac Pro and I use a fairly large monitor. I also have several VMs that I run locally with Vagrant + Ubuntu. All of my remote servers/workstations run Ubuntu also. See: Ubuntu Bootstrap.

Guest Posting / Syndication

Like many publications, I love, and will often work together with guest authors. Therefore, you’ll occasionally see articles published by others on this site. If you’re a publisher, please see how to write articles at ‹src.works/›.
