Here be settings.

Yes, this is a fairly large box considering the low number of settings. One could even go so far as to say it could be more appropriately called "Page Setting".

Page Info

The decision to use just regular HTML, vanilla JS (mostly), and vanilla CSS to create this page was made as I didn't want to pick a specific framework.

I think sometimes developers get too attached to their framework of choice, and can get tunnel vision when trying to decide what to use for a new project.

Generally I'm framework agnostic as they all have their pros and cons.

Stuff About Me

Recently my main focus of work has been on developing client-facing javascript applications along with their dependent backend APIs.

I get the most joy by enabling my team to own the entire product process. Including (but not necessarily limited to) initial vision, development design and architecture, infrastructure configuration, deployments, monitoring, and observability.

I'm interested in organizations that have a modern approach to application development where my experience can help my team push forward on new features, exploring new ideas, learning new technologies and continuing to work on interesting problems and products.
