Josh Dura

About Me

As you probably know already, my name is Josh Dura. I have been involved in designing, developing and talking about the web for over 15 years. It all started back when I designed (if you can call it that) my first website on Angelfire.com. I am extremely thankful that they shut those websites down and that I never got a backup, because it was terrible. I’ve had many positions over 15+ years, from Web Developer at local startups, to a Game Developer, to my current role, a Senior Technical Support Engineer at Adobe. I’ve met some of my best friends, and some of the smartest people throughout this journey. Meeting and interacting with these people is by far the best part of the job, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

In my spare time, you can usually find me playing hockey on the weekends, playing World of Warcraft or any other addictive game way too late into the night, working tirelessly on some pointless project just to test out some new technology, or just wasting time endlessly scrolling through Reddit. If you have a second, please say hi, I would love to hear from you. If not, just follow me on Twitter.
