Calvin Koepke.

The intersection of software and life.

I'm a Senior Frontend Engineer at 10up, specializing in frontend technologies for the web. My day-to-day is usually a mix of building enterprise websites for well-known companies, such as Facebook, and consulting on new projects as a technical lead for frontend architecture.

When I'm not doing that, I'm writing things I learn (about both software and life) on this blog, chatting up a storm on Twitter, and enjoying the remote life at my home in Boise, Idaho.

My History

I started building websites back when blogging websites had sidebars and blogrolls. It was a simple time, when the community of bloggers worked together (instead of building their own "brands"). I'm doing my best to get back to the simplicity of that.

Regardless, I customized my blog as much as was possible on the free version of, and the rest, as they say, is history.

My Family

I currently have 3 boys. They keep me busy and tired at the end of the day, but I couldn't imagine life without them. They are one the greatest treasures in my life.

Of course, before them was the beautiful Tanya Koepke, someone who has changed me for the better and never given up on me. I owe much of who I am and have grown up to be to her kindness and unrelenting accountability. Plus, she's amazingly talented at interior design.
