Thoughts about web development and music


Welcome to my web development blog! The purpose of this website is for me to share interesting web development projects and music related projects with others.

My name is Greg Jopa and I live in Glendale, California. In 2004, I took my first programming class learning Java and have been hooked ever since. I enjoy developing web apps and learning new technologies.

As a Grad Assistant I had the opportunity to work with ISU’s web support department to redesign the School of Information Technology website. I learned a lot from this year long project and you can check out the website here:


I grew up in Darien, Illinois and lived there most of my life. I currently live in Glendale, CA.


I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and have taken guitar lessons on and off ever since I started playing. You can check out a couple of the bands I was in during college here:
