I like to do things, I prefer to write code that will do things for me.
I've always worked with tech. I managed to .join() my love for Audio and Tech and .get() a job as a large venue Audio Video Engineer. While working in that role I got to colaborate with the software company that designed the back-end management software for a venue that I maintaned. That's when I learned that developers have the COOLEST JOB!
Now, here I am, just a guy with the coolest job.
Check out my blog to see about my journey through code
I really enjoy writing code that is both performant and easy to understand. More importantly, I like writing code that fixes real problems, so my work has tended to follow that trend.
I'm always learning new tech, but below are the things I am most excited about!
I love code. I don't love semantic markup(html). React helps me write more code and less html. Thanks!
I tend to prefer Angular's less opinionated alternatives, but I can't deny how cool the Angular magic is.
Redux is great, but the redux devtools are awesome! I'd manage my state with redux just to see the state tree light up.
Python is certainly not my first language, but it's growing on me daily. I really like the no nonsense syntax.
I like to build scalable apps and scalable back-ends for them. To me that means a well designed sql that has great read/write efficiency.
Mongo is the object-oriented design staple. I use it any time rapid prototyping is a priority of my project.
A few of my applications utilize sockets and I've become deeply invested in the capabilities of this library.
"Ben Cooley is a combination of two rare traits, excitement about new things and the tenacity to stick with it through the hard parts to gain great understanding of the topic. He is a calming force in group situations, willing to listen when needed, and willing to take responsibility for his choices. I would consider him an idea candidate for any position!"
