I’m Jim Mock, a web developer living in Portland, Oregon. I’m currently the Web Development Manager at ON1, Inc., a position I’ve held since March of 2009. On the weekends (and occasionally some weeknights), I work in a bar. Update: the bar I worked at closed in mid-September 2014. Update: as of December 2016, I’m worrking weekend nights at The Conquistador.

I’m dad to the most awesome pair of 7-year old fraternal twin boys on the planet. They live with my ex-wife, but my wife and I have them two days a week and I pick them up from school regularly. They can certainly be a handful, but I can’t imagine my life without them. I’m also step-dad to 3 awesome kids–an 11-year old girl, a 9-year old boy, and a soon-to-be 7-year old girl. We’re a regular Brady Bunch over here.

About the site

The site is powered by WordPress and hosted at Linode.


My current setup consists of two 32GB iPad Pros–a 12.9″ model and a 9.7″ LTE model (both in space gray), and a 32GB space gray iPhone 7 Plus. At work, I have a 13″ MacBook Pro on my desk that I hook up to a 27″ Thunderbolt Display.

My “main” computer is the iPad Pro… which one depends on the task at hand. If I’m at work, I’m likely using the 12.9″ model attached to a Smart Keyboard (with the exception of meetings). Just about everything else gets done on the 9.7″ model.

The only time I use the MacBook Pro is when I need to use Photoshop to slice up PSDs for web images. I haven’t found a good way to do this on iOS yet, so if you know of a way to do it, please let me know so I can ditch the laptop completely :)


All of the coding for the site is done in Coda for iOShttps://itunes.apple.com/us/app/coda-for-ios/id500906297?mt=8&at=11l4GI) on my the iPad. The writing is either done in Safari on the iPad or the WordPress iOS app. Uploading is handled by Coda for iOS or Transmit for iOS.
