I build things with Node.js + React.jsWho the heck am I?
My name is Alexander Jack Hughes. But you can call me Alex. I am a startup founder and Software Engineer.
To give you a quick history lesson: I've been building startups for the last five (and a bit) years, and in between managed to get an MSc in Computer Science and write a few things for Hackernoon.
But enough about me, how have you been?
Right now I'm building Huckletree; A Workspace Accelerator focused on interesting startups in Europe. This keeps me pretty busy, with a full boatload of Node microservices and React web apps to build. Plus, a bit of Laravel to maintain our monolith.
I still also build the occasional freelance web app if you're interested?
Really, I'm a maker. I make things.
Here are a couple of the things I've made that I'm most proud of.
I'm a big fan of using the right tool for the right job. Nowadays I mainly build React apps and Node APIs, but occassionaly I build the odd WordPress website like this. What do you think?Go have a look
