Web3, React & Node Developer Advocate

I've had the most amazing experience as a developer advocate working for the KendoReact team at Progress Software and more recently the Software Engineering department at Couchbase! I focus on JavaScript and Node technologies for fullstack web developers who work anywhere between the front end and the backend API, Couchbase is an amazing NoSQL database and a lot of my current content features it in some way as just one part of a larger ecosystem and ideas around using the right tools, frameworks, and libraries that you have at your disposal. My current team focuses on JavaScript, Java, ASP.Net, Python, and Go SDKs and tries to reach the developers that use these tools and provide them with learning materials, tutorials and quick-starts, demo applications and we will speak anywhere our fans of Couchbase and these technologies will have us!

Below are all of my blog articles, white-papers, conference talks, videos, podcasts, and workshops from 2018 through 2021.

Below you will find (by category) blog posts written by myself during my time being a React and JavaScript Developer Advocate.

I had written about React Hooks on the blog and once I had a gang of articles on the subject, I combined them all knowledge into a single resource with help from my amazing team on design, marketing, SEO, and getting it deployed onto the website where it could better serve the React community and our customers who use React daily. It was an amazing idea and I owe that to my team for encouraging me and helping me to create this amazing resource on Hooks. It replaced the following articles:

  • How to Use Basic React Hooks for State and Effects
  • How to Use Basic React Hooks for Context
  • How to Use Basic React Hooks for Reducers
  • Everything You Need to Create a Custom React Hook
  • Discovering React Hooks with KendoReact

Again, We rolled them all into one article and redirected each similar topic blog post to the applicable section of the new guide:

On the KendoReact team I networked with many React influencers to collaborate on an article my @KendoReact team where we ask 25 React developers about their tips on being productive in React.

As a Developer Advocate, my job is to be available to developers, teach and learn in public alongside them. This means always having an open line of communication. I am best reached on Twitter @httpJunkie or LinkedIn!

Please do not hesitate to reach out, developers, podcast hosts, conference or meetup organizers, or the average Joe/Jane, I'm here to help!
