Hello! I’m Mike, a front-end web developer currently living in the Bay Area. In 2010, I was working as a lab technician and questioning my life choices. I spent 8 months studying Java on my own and was eventually able to throw away all my education and experience to start a new career in software development. I currently work as a Frontend Developer at Airbnb on the Airbnb for Work team.

Learning about web development has been an even wilder ride than I ever imagined. Programming has always thrived in large part because of all the generous people out there who have shared their knowledge willingly, and my hope is to participate in some small way to this great tradition of knowledge sharing through this blog.
