About Jason

All about me

Jason Dinsmore is me, and I am Jason Dinsmore. You’ll see no third-person references here. .

This page is specifically about me. If you are wondering about the blog, check out my post on Why a Blog?.

Let’s start from the outside and work our way in, you know, like eating an apple.

I work at Hint. We’re a software consultancy based in Vancouver, WA - about a 20 minute drive north of Portland, OR.

At Hint, I mainly write code for web applications in Ruby (a programming lanugage), and Ruby on Rails (a web framework). It’s great. I really love the challenge of analyzing a problem or need, architecting a solution that solves it, and then writing code to implement the solution. You could say it scratches several itches at once.


I live about another 20 minutes north of Vancouver, outside of the small town of Battle Ground. We live on a few acres with 5 dogs, a cat, and 2 birds. It may sound like a lot, but it’s the fewest number of creatures we’ve had living here for many years.


I really, really, love dogs. That said, 5 is a little much.
