My Sites

Interests

  • JAMStack

    A web ideology that relies on javascript, API calls, and prerendered markup to move processing off the server. Sites built on the JamStack can be smaller, cheaper, and more performant applications.

  • Web Components

    A collection of web technologies that enable the creation of custom elements to encapsulate UI components on the shadow DOM. With web components custom interactions can be better abstracted and used throughout an application or across the organization.
