About

I am Aaron Trickey, independent software developer and consultant. Husband of Hemi Trickey. Father of two and resident of the Chicago suburbs.

Casual Programmer, LLC, is my software consulting and development business. This site hosts my occasional blog and homepages for my independently-released apps.

You can reach me at aaron@casualprogrammer.com, as @at on Micro.Blog, and on LinkedIn.

Some highlights from my over 20 years in the industry: I’ve run the software side of a hardware/softare startup working to make high-bandwidth optical networking technology easy to deploy everywhere. I’ve managed distributed teams building software for global customers. I’ve done consulting work at financial/trading firms, telecom firms, and manufacturing firms. If you think I may be able to help you, please reach out.

Kevin’s Apps

My oldest son Kevin has released several fun iOS apps, although they are not actively maintained; those pages are also hosted here.

This site

I build this site using Jekyll. Authoring of Markdown, HTML, and CSS is all done using Vim, with some accumulated automation with Perl, Make, and C code. I value the ability to view source on the Web. I do not use or participate in any user analytics or tracking.

The primary font used here is Charter by Matthew Carter (Bitstream), converted by Matthew Butterick, and generously licensed for free.

All other images, text, and markup is © 2001–2019 Aaron Trickey. Please do not copy my images or text, but feel free to reuse any CSS, JavaScript, or other Web code I publish.
