Work

I am currently employed as a web developer and I am always learning new technologies and building new things. As a developer, I strive to create products and solutions that can empower other developers.

If you want to see the hardware / software I use, head over to my Uses Page.

As well, I have a site which I list development resources that I personally use or recommend: Lannonbr.dev.

Community Involvement

I am an active member of the Syracuse Developer community and go to events such as Open Hack and the Syracue JS meetup. It's a place that I've found local dev opportunities and a place to help out / get answers in the tech community. You can find out more at Syracuse.io.

As well, I am heavily active on GitHub. If you want to learn more about my open source work, head over to the Open Source Page or my Github.

Finally, I've found a haven in the Twitch Dev community of individuals livestreaming and learning with others. I enjoy partaking in discussions with streamers and community members in the chatroom and getting involved with projects they're building and putting up on GitHub. You may often see me in the chats of Suz Hinton, Brian Clark, Jeff Fritz, and plenty of others.

Currently Tinkering With

These are a few technologies I am tinkering with by building side projects

Stream Deck SDK

As of February 2019

Although I do not stream, the Elgato Stream Deck is becoming useful for non-streamers as a productivity device. Recently, they've created an SDK for developers to build new plugins for the device. There have been devs making plugins to toggle Wi-Fi light bulbs, trigger DevOps deployment scripts, and view statistics. I am interested in thinking of how I could use it to benefit my workflows.

GitHub Actions

As of November 2018

GitHub Actions allow developers to integrate workflows into GitHub. It's a step beyond normal CI/CD and I'm testing ways of expanding ideas on how I can create tools to extend GitHub.

VS Code Extensions

As of August 2018

Microsoft's VS Code text editor can be enhanced with additional features through extensions. I built an extension to add parameter annotations into JS-based files: JS Parameter Annotations

Gatsby

As of August 2018

A React based web framework. I've been building this site as well as my VS Code Blog with Gatsby. As well, given Gatsby is Open Source, I've been actively contributing to their repo through issues and PRs and making the experience of developing with Gatsby more enjoyable and comprehendable
