We spent decades trying to invent a sufficiently smart compiler when
we should have been inventing a sufficiently empathetic one.
I am a Software Engineer working 10+ years on developer tools, distributed systems and consumer facing applications. I have been involved in the Rust programming language since 2015 and have spent countless hours making the Rust Compiler a friendly tutor. I am passionate about Open Source/Libre Software, strongly enjoy mentoring, problem solving and knowledge sharing, and am convinced that the User Experience of developer tools is as important as that of consumer products.
I am seeking opportunities and projects that will allow me to use Rust as a solution to real problems, and to continue growing and improving the Rust ecosystem and community.
