Hello World

April 26, 2019

Hello World! My name is George Rodier. As this is my first blog post, I thought I’d introduce myself as you join along on this journey of thinking, discovering, learning, and teaching.

I’m a software developer living and working in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I currently lead a team of developers building a ‘DropBox-like’ web application that allows users to interface with the datasource/project management software the company I work for creates. My role involves managing the members on my team, keeping them on track, and helping them grow as developers. In addition, I manage the backlog for the product, architect solutions to new product integrations and dev ops pipelines, as well as implement and deliver new features myself.

After graduating with a computer science degree from Drexel University, I worked on a variety of project from native mobile apps to desktop apps to renderers to web APIs. I finally found my place buiding web applications. I love all aspects of delivering a new project from product architecture to design systems to build pipelines to CI to JavaScript to not delivering Javascript to CSS to semantic HTML to accessibility to performance to progressive enhancement to functional programming to backend APIs. The list goes on and on and on.

I’ve learned a lot in the past couple years as I’ve engrossed myself in the world of web development. There’s a good amount I know, have learned, and can share with you. And I’m excited to do just that. But there’s a ton of areas where I’m still weak and learning. So I’d love to share my findings there as well. The world of web development is constantly changing and as a result is a never ending journey of learning and applying that knowledge. It’s not something I had thought about when I started to study computer science, but is one of the reasons I’ve fallen in love with it.

Enjoy!
