My name is John Cleaver. I work at Factivity, Inc. as a software developer and project manager. I am currently working on custom code for clients as well as building a mobile front-end for our factory floor software and an API to work with it. At work, I write in Java, Python, and OpenEdge, but I tend to stick with Python for my personal projects.
In my spare time, I program, write, read fiction and longform non-fiction articles, as well as play video games, role-playing games, and Magic: The Gathering. On the weekends, I occasionally hike and camp at various locations throughout Ohio and the surrounding states. Recently, I've taken up biking and, while I still have work to do, I quite enjoy commuting to work by bike.
About this Blog
The name of the site is derived from the city that I live in-- Cleveland: "The Mistake by the Lake". Since Cleveland is one of the few major cities located on a great lake, the name seemed appropriate.
If you would like to reuse any content on this site, you are free to do so, but please keep it reasonable-- credit the source and ask before using entire (or large portions of) posts.
My hope is that someone benefits from reading these pages as much as I have from writing them.
