How long have you been building software?
I have always been passionate about technology, but my official transition into a software engineering career began in 2016. After 6 years of work experience in a different field, I decided to shift my focus to web development. My two years of building software have included personal projects, bootcamp projects, open-source projects, and professional production experience.

What is your preferred development stack?
I’ve really enjoyed building projects using the SERN (SQL, Express, React, Node) stack. I’m currently working on a team that uses React, Redux, and Material-UI on the front end. Although I enjoy my current stack, Vue.js and Cosmic JS are two technologies that I’m interested in picking up.

What past projects are you most proud of and why?
My favorite non work-related project is my DevMountain group project, Fittr.us. Fittr.us was created out of our team's love for fitness and desire to put useful data and features all in one place. Fittr.us syncs with Fitbit to import and visualize data based on the user's goals. We also implemented a friend system along with a badging system. Timer and stopwatch features are both available too for real-time usage during workouts.

This was a fun and challenging project as we were forced to function as a single unit, plan together, use Git & GitHub effectively, and quickly figure out how to do new things.

What are some technologies you are excited about or want to learn more about?
I really look forward to exploring Cosmic JS’s methods for handling data and file management. At the moment, I’d like to focus most on building client applications and  Cosmic JS will allow me to do so with the tools I already love using. I was also really intrigued by Tony’s Spiro’s React VR Art Gallery demonstration at the ReactJS Meetup, so that is another area I’d like to eventually explore.
