I think the best way to tell you about myself is to show you what I am passionate about. Below are some featured articles and presentations I've worked on.
TCO stands for Total Cost of Ownership, and in this talk I specifically call out to the web development community and posit that
developer experience should be seen as a spectrum. Not every project needs the same tools and complex solutions all the time.
My hope in this talk is that we can all come out of it thinking about our relationship with technology and productivity and how we can better balance the user experience.
For anyone who has always had that “lightbulb” moment but not sure how to realize it, this talk
aims to help everyone realize a way to craft their own workflow and become a stronger advocate
for their own success.
In this presentation, I discussed how Docker can help soften some of the thornier parts of implementing SSR,
while maintaining great User Experiences (UX) and just as importantly, promoting good Developer Experiences (DX).
Presented at ProvJS, in this session I explored the motivations and implementations for why performance matters in modern
web applications. Topics covered included Lighthouse, ES2015+, module bundling, and the Critical Rendering Path.
Short lightning talk created for Open Data Day as part of the Newport Data Project.
A presentation I did at a Kenzan Meetup on a project sponsored by Kenzan to redesign and rebuild the website for the local community
meetup group Providence Geeks. Covered the entire process from design to delivery, and everything in between.
A talk I gave at BrooklynJS highlighting the need to cultivate developer experiences that value training, knowledge transfer, educational
support and professional development to fuel digital transformations and yield better products and stronger technical teams.
Presentation I gave at ProvJS based on my article series for Kenzan that covered modern frontend development with Yarn, webpack and TypeScript.
Included a code walkthrough on a webpack based React project.
Presentation I gave at the Linux Open Source Leadership Summit for Kenzan highlighting tips and features to use when managing an open source project in GitHub.
