I’m a software developer. I build backend tools in Node.js for work, and iOS apps in Swift for me. I also write a web app or two here and there using various tools (this site uses Jekyll, for example). I like to try new frameworks and tools, so I’d like to think that I know at least a little bit about a lot of things. Check out my Projects page to see everything I (publicly) work on.
Here are some interesting things about me:
I went to school for Computer Science. I took all the usual suspects of courses: Algorithms, Data Structures, Architectures; but I also learned a lot (both about writing code and working with others) while building projects with Mason SRCT outside of class.
In both 2018 and 2019, I won scholarships to attend Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). It was an incredible experience, and I wrote about my 2018 trip on this site.
Myke Hurley once called me “important in Upgrade lore”. I’ve made a couple of cool projects related to Upgrade to warrant this.
In 2015, I learned a lot about routers and switches and passed the Cisco ICND1 exam, becoming a Cisco Certified Enter Network Technician. I think that certification has expired by now, but the knowledge and experience of that was valuable.
From doing various personal projects, I have some experience with video and audio editing, mostly with Final Cut Pro and Logic. You can see some of them on YouTube.
I like to write little reviews on Letterboxd after I watch movies. It helps me think more about what I’m watching.
Finally, I am an Eagle Scout.
If you want to verify who I really am, I’m on Keybase.io @zmknox.
