I’m an application team lead overseeing a large Svelte and SvelteKit codebase. My role revolves around leading a team of talented developers and ensuring best practices in the development lifecycle. Prior to this, I was a developer advocate, partnering with companies to create content that educates users and streamline their journey.
I create content written in the blog here and educational videos supporting the written content.
