James Stidard

a place of narcissism

# about

A programmer with an unhealthy obsession over user/developer experience.

I have sunk many hours into full-stack web development, using mainly Python and JavaScript tools. My go-to tools are currently Postgres, Sanic, and Vue.js. Though, I'm getting pretty psyched about EdgeDB imminent release - it has probably been released by the time you're reading this.

Outside of the webdev world, I'm also familiar with iOS development. I'm currently experimenting with RxSwift; trying to get the joys of UX development that Vue.js has spoiled me with.

You can find my public coding escapades over on my GitHub profile.

Outside-outside (in the real world) I enjoy parks, cycling, climbing, and board games. All of which I should do more of, and less coding.
