As a software developer working with Go, JavaScript, and Python; I get excited about opportunities where I can help make people’s lives easier. Whether it’s a JavaScript based Chrome Extension for an internal team, a status bar written in Go, or a decentralized blockchain based storage solution written in Python. After eight years of Linux, four years of programming, and almost a decade working with web technologies I learned that if it is solving the needs of someone it’s worth the time and effort.
