Other Projects and Accomplishments
Maintained Spectacle, Formidable's open-sourced React.js-based project for building interactive and informational presentations, through a rewrite of the library. We achieved our goal of modernizing the internal architecture and improving the authoring experience through an introduction of React hooks. We wrote about this project in a blog post, which you can read here.
Have been invited to speak at a number of conferences and meetups nation-wide. You can see a description of my talks, as well as links to the recorded presentations, here.
Additionally, I actively maintain a blog where content includes briefer "TIL" (Today I Learned)-style posts as well as longer deep-dives into technologies I've had to learn on the job.
Of the many technologies I have experience with, the following are among my strengths:
AWS (more specifically, in the context of serverless functions, lambdas, authorization, and s3 buckets)
