My name is George and I am a retired software engineer. I use to work on Telecom embedded Linux systems, writing system configuration software. Now that I am retired, I want to learn how to develop websites. I created Altoplace to practice what I have learned. I need “content” to build a website, so I decided to share “notes” about what I have learned and other technology interests such as macOS, iOS, FreeBSD, Linux, and other new interests that I may develop.

I also want to include “life” interests like family, travel, and my personal relationship with God. I have a wonderful wife, and we love to travel together. She is the love of my life. We were both widowed. My first wife and I were never able to have children. But now I do have a family and they call me Papa! Throughout life, my walk with God and his Son, Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit has given me strength and comfort for living.

Even though this is my “place” to learn how to do website development, I do hope that along the way I might share something that could be helpful for others.
