Hello, my name is Michael Hughes. I currently reside in the Salt Lake City area and enjoy various hobbies ranging from home brewing to skiing. Although, having recently purchased a house, pursuits like furniture finishing, painting, and plumbing have become interesting to me as well (not necessarily by choice).

Coding in the trenches is a place where I generally write about technically related subjects; some times posts here are tips on specific technologies, other times posts here are longer winded pieces with general commentary on technology. Hopefully, at the very least, the blog is useful and sometimes entertaining.

For work inquiries please reach out to me on LinkedIn or contact me via email.
