Fell in love with Dart, Go, Flutter, Kubernetes, and even enjoyed wrangling some C#. The team worked on several projects, including a platform-as-a-service-WYSIWYG-app-builder and internal developer tools. All of which make Enterprise Software easier to write, maintain and scale.
I love writing and teaching, and I love Flutter. I'm thrilled to have had the opportunity to write a book about Flutter, to spread the good work. The book is published by Manning.
Thanks to Flutter, I've been able to work on mobile apps as well. Most recently, I built an RFID scanning app for MSU students. I've also used Objective-C and Javato write plugins for Flutter.
Good user-experience includes writing good documentation if you're building developer tools. I wrote much of the documentation for AppTree's Workflow Engine.
Some others include Flutter Map, Flutter Calendar, and Dart Date Utils. See it all on myGithub
Working in food and beverage has nothing to do with software. And, I'm proud of that. For 10 years, from my mid-teens through college, I worked in bars, managed some of the worlds best restaurants, and became a certified Sommelier.
All that said, I came up spending every day working directly with and communicating with guests, clients and teammates alike. I'm convinced that these years gave me a crash course in communicating with human beings and working with everyone to reach common goals. We're all on the same team when we work together.
