Hi, I’m Cody Burleson and this is my online notebook.
Here, you’ll find a bunch of aging technical notes and tutorials that I posted during my days in the software business. I’m not posting much of the technical stuff anymore; I’ve recently retired from 23 years in software to focus full-time on writing.
Currently, I’m working on a book about the special landing force of 1st Battalion, 3rd Marines in the Vietnam War. My dad was a rocket man in a weapons platoon attached to Delta Company. The story of what he and the 1/3 Marines did in Vietnam is epic and more astounding than fiction. The working title of the book is The Cage, which refers to Operation Beaver Cage – a key event in the story. I hope to complete and publish it by May, 2021.

I occasionally share things that I learn about the art of story-telling and the craft of writing. I also post an occasional piece of creative writing or mémoire.
Thanks for visiting! I’m glad you stopped by.
