A year in review (2022)
First, I've got to work with wonderful people, which helped make the challenging parts of this year bearable.
I got the opportunity twice this year to get in on some very cool companies building exciting products.
I got to work on making online gifting better and more accessible to brands, and who doesn't like getting gifts?
- Built features to help get over 500 merchants to use Govalo as their gifting platform.
- Learned Typescript
- Built an email redemption app
- Contextual Savebar
- A lot of customizations
- Knowing things I built helped merchants pad their stats on Black Friday/Cyber Monday (BFCM)
- Over 270 contributions from Jan-May 2022
I worked with an incredible group.
- Over 319 contributions
- Learned Vue/Nuxt
- Learned Prisma
- Built multiple features
- Leveled up my UI skills
Here are some stats!
Those were just professional achievements. Here are the things that happened too.
- Broke 250 Dads
- Saw many Dads get their first tech jobs.
- Homes bought
Very thankful for this community that has watched me ride the tidal waves of moving from a busy ER job to a tech job. CoderDads helped me through 2 layoffs this year.
I was on some podcasts/live streams this year! If you have a podcast, I would love to come on and share my story.
