About Me

Who is that bearded man?

Jonathan Franzone

Software Engineer from Pensacola, FL

My name is Jonathan Franzone. I've been building web applications for over 20 years. I have worked for the public sector / government and on department of defense contracts. I have worked for an advertising agency, an online job board, a few software companies and currently, an online university.

Web applications should be functional and just make sense. Code should be beautiful, legible and maintainable. Software should meet the requirements and needs of the business.
