About Me


I'm a Boston-based Java developer who loves clean code as much as clean design.

My name is Jason Howes and I hail from a tiny town in northern Maine called Millinocket. My passion for computers stems from my early childhood typing Basic programs into my trusty Commodore 64 and communicating with various enthusiasts over a BBC or two. I pursued both my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Computer Science at Cornell University and over the years I've been involved in the development and evolution of highly scalable, performant, and available distributed systems. I'm most at home programing in Java, as it's been my go-to language for over 20 years, but I've also worked on several large projects in C++ and .NET. In my spare time I like to listen to music, run, hike, read, and flirt with the speed limit in my classic Porsche. My various jobs have taken me to both coasts and to our heartland, but I now call Boston my home.
