We are a group of humble, but amazing developers with one thing in common: we're all west of somewhere else. Where we differ from similar sites: we talk to each other! Often. At conferences, via email, and on Slack. From Docker to Canadian politics to feature toggles to smoked meat, we're never at a loss for words. We blog, talk, write, and present. Thanks for stopping by.
