Howdy! I'm Stephen. I am a staff engineer at a non-profit trying to work in the progressive ecosystem to make a difference in 2020. I'm currently working in Golang but have worked in js/node, various frontend stacks, Ruby and Java. I've lead teams, departments and been a individual contributor.

This is my favorite picture of my cat Tony. He was very confused when all the furniture was gone when I was moving.

Hello Devs!

Great to be part of dev.to

I'm currently working on huntr.dev - an open source bug bounty board.
Come and have a chat about open source security!

I do more of the design, marketing, and frontend HTML and Javascript - but I am constantly increasing my developer knowledge by reading your articles (thank you), watching videos, and taking Codecademy courses when I get the time!

Software development is fun as hell.

Fun fact about me - I can do a Rubik's cube in under 20 seconds :P

Hi 👋, I'm Elio and work as an independent Belgium-based Engineering Lead, Blogger eliostruyf.com, and Public Speaker for Valo Intranet.

I work in the Microsoft 365 / SharePoint space. Something most of you don't like ☺️. These days it is actually incredibly fun, as things are so rapidly changing in it. Every day there's something new to learn, and finally started to use the latest and greatest.

Coding is a passion, as most of us share here most probably. My preferred language is TypeScript, but also dare to use C#. On my GitHub profile, you can find various of my hobby projects. Like for instance the VSCode extension to manage front matter of my static site: Front Matter Extension or an extension to easily export TypeScript modules: TypeScript Export All Modules. These are just two of the many other projects you find there.

Besides coding I have a passion for Lego and stickers (even created a side hustle during this crisis called: Pimp Your Own Device.

Colton Kaiser

Hey Lucas, nice to meet you and welcome as well!

In my Bootcamp we've learned both front and back-end pretty extensively, and I love them both. So I'd say ideally full-stack. That being said, I seem to be drawn more towards the front-end side of things, so if I had to choose one I'd say front-end. Since the job market is in a weird place right now, I'm also prepared to take what I can get and run with it!
