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.
