I'm a front-end developer who specializes in React.js and I'm always on the lookout for cool new technologies.

Over the past year, I've had the pleasure to work on the QHack's technology team, building internal tools and improving our online presence. QHacks is a hackathon hosted at Queen’s University where software developers come together to collaborate on projects and win prizes. I helped to create a landing page for the event and the application system for QHacks participants.

Eventually though, after having gained experience in React.js, I felt that my webpage could use the functionality a library like React provides. Eventually I settled on using an exciting new framework, Sapper. What got me interested in Sapper, was a blog post by the framework's creator Rich Harris.
