A self-taught software engineer, I am passionate about learning and implementing stable, modern code. I’ve been active in various volunteer organizations, serving as team lead for Code for San Francisco’s Website and Tools Team, facilitating the Node.js Website Working group for over 6 months, and spearheading Brigadehub, a proposed CMS for Code for America volunteer brigades.
I am an avid advocate for Open Source, am building a new documentation standard for OSS projects, I’ve published numerous active NPM modules, and am constantly looking for more projects to chip in on. I know where I got my start, so I strive to help new-comers to the development world get their bearings, while trying to push for an increased awareness of the social and civic impact of coding. I know that code can’t solve everything, but I intend to use my skills the best I can to help others.
The thoughts expressed here are my own, and only my own.
Goodness, it’s been a while since I’ve been blogged. As of late, I’ve been diving into my work with Code for San Francisco, SF’s local Code for America volunteer brigade. After a few months of trying to maintain their Jekyll-based site, I realized that with a core team of upward of 10 people, having one or two people be the bottleneck for content was just not going to fly. After looking at solutions other brigades have deployed, and weighing the pros and cons of each, I decided to shoot into the dark and see if I could hit something. I started working on a brigade-specific CMS, which I called brigadehub. This CMS, in my view, was to replace and consolidate all of the automatable tasks of the brigade…
If you take a look at my Github profile, you’ll see I have a lot of repos. Github is the way I organize my code, how I interact with other developers, and test new ideas. As such it can be kinda hard to sift through. Here are a few projects I’ve worked on that I’m proud of.
