Software developer

I have a strong belief that there are still many unexplored low-hanging fruit in software development.

Tooling advances can lead to qualitative leaps in development, and that includes conceptual tools; it should be a general focus for developers to cultivate a judgement that allows recognizing these advances.

JavaScript has relatively humble origins as a language, but it's uniquely situated as the language of the web, and popularity is relevant to tooling because the number of users drives the advancement of tools.

I have a sustained goal to try to take a broader view about where technology is heading and how it applies to practical development, and hopefully it can be shared with others.
