My name is Makoa, born and raised in beautiful Honolulu, Hawai‘i but currently a Portland, Oregon transplant living amongst the foodies and hipsters.  I have been using technology since I was five (Macintosh LC was my first computer) and devoting the last ten years solving administrative educational problems using technology.

I am currently creating Kula SIS, hopefully what will become the Drupal equivalent (easier to develop for, though) for the student information system. Read my current assessment of the SIS for K-12.

The purpose of my blog is to document my journey, documenting nuggets of knowledge I have acquired available for others to use in their development.

Namecheap for domains.
