Gil Browdy

Hi, my name is Gil.

I am a fullstack software engineer.  I learned to code in high school (when it looked more like this), and I’ve had a passion ever since.  I love to learn new technologies, and I learn quickly.

On the backend:

-> I am experienced in Python (including Flask and Django).  You might even call me a Pythonista.

-> I also know my way around Go though I’m less sure about being called a Gopher.

-> At home, I enjoy playing around with NodeJS.

On the frontend:

-> These days I’m using a lot of React along with Mobx which is automagical!

-> I have experience in AngularJS (1.x) and Angular 2/5, and along with that TypeScript, and RxJs.

-> I am a strong believer in a single source of truth (Flux/Redux/NgRx-store)

-> Also, I have experience with JQuery (is this something people even admit anymore?) and plain old VanillaJS.

-> I like good semantic HTML5 code.

-> I have experience with Bootstrap and Zurb Foundation and I know my way around SASS/SCSS and LESS.

-> I can throw together a nice WordPress site, too.

Other things:

-> I use Linux and can navigate the command line (I’m a zsh user).

-> I know how to Git and I am one with the Gitflow (and everyone should have this bookmarked…).

-> I can build you a Webpack config if you’d like.

-> I can make you a sweet reverse proxy with Nginx.

-> And if you want, I’ll also make you a nice build file for your Docker image, and I can orchestrate a few with composer.

-> I like my Query Languages structured (MySQL, PostgreSQL), but I dig MongoDB and DynamoDB, too.

-> I use AWS and I’m even a certified Associate Developer! But if Amazon isn’t your thing, I can also work with Azure and Google Cloud.

-> I’ve got a lot of serverless experience, but I’m not a fanatic and I also know that a monolith has its place in distributed systems.

-> I like testing,  I like writing tests, I like maintaining tests, I like pondering the value of unit tests vs integration tests vs end-to-end tests.

-> I don’t like to be without a CI/CD pipeline (I’ve got some TravisCI and CircleCI experience and CodePipeline, too).

-> I’m so Agile I’ve got a +2 DEX modifier.

-> I am not afraid – I repeat – I am not afraid of Selenium.

-> I’m down with OOP.

Sites I’ve coded:

-> – Design: Blue Collar

-> Geogame – I made this for fun when I was just learning Angular and Bootstrap

-> Can I Get A – My first app ever.  Simple code, with design and suggestions by Vinny Francois
