💻 The Company 💻

SoBo.Red was created by Yeshua (Joshua) Hall in 2015 and incorporated in 2017. Yeshua has always had a craving to correct the problems they see around them, and SoBo.Red was founded as a conduit for them to conduct business while correcting these problems.

With that foundation-and-mission still in mind, SoBo.Red focuses on being blog-first. Yeshua also provides Career Coaching & Consultation to Tech Professionals, especially those in the IBM i industry. For clarity: IBM i was formerly known as AS/400, iSeries, and many other names throughout history. IBM is weird with their naming. One may only shrug and move on.

Why the name SoBo.Red? The name actually started as Bo-Red, and eventually evolved into a heteronym, pronounced two different ways. Joshua asked their great-grandmother, Nell Roebuck, what the business should be called, and she replied: “Bo-Red, pronounced bō-red; to name it after your great-grandfather’s business.”

The business was named after Red Roebuck (Joshua’s great-grandfather) and his business partner, Bo. They did just about anything that would help their customers, which fit Yeshua’s values for their business. This name soon evolved into Bored and then SoBored (main: SoBo.Red).
