Don't Make Excuses. Make It Happen.

Recording first EP on my back in bed.
* There is rarely an excuse not to do what you truly desire

what doesn't kill you... makes you stronger

I’m John Calderaio, a Computer Science Engineer with experience at IBM & Lockheed Martin. I am currently physically disabled and in constant excruciating pain, but that doesn’t stop me from creating software, writing, blogging, and making music.

Lost friends, disability in lieu of a promising career, and becoming part of a marginalized group are a only a handful of things I’ve had to deal with since my injuries.

I will be chronicling my struggles and victories, as well as my journey to become a better developer – hence, “Painful Development dot com”!

So buckle up, and take a look around.
