Hello, my name is Emanuel Quimper. I’m from Quebec, Canada.
A little bit about myself. First I was in the Army for 7 years before starting to program in 2015.
I’m very passionate and programming has become more than a job for me, a hobby.
I code all the time if I’m not with my family
I’m the father of a 1 year old little boy.
From the start I was already sharing my knowledge to everyone who wanted it.
I became a mentor at Thinkful and Bloc in 2016.
, just one year later, because I was programming 80+ hrs a week and when I was not working I was studying.
I was always helping students on slack too so it did help me to get a bit more knowledge for my little experience at the time.
I’ve been into node from the start of my career but Adam did change it when I did look at his youtube video on Kitetail etc. TDD was new for me and I was amazed by his working flow. In node it is so hard to do this without plugin so many things together. So I decided to give Laravel a chance. From this day for my own client cause yes I work at a react/react-native/node agency, I do use Laravel with vue and react native if mobile need. When tailwind came I was an early adopter. Of course I like using new stuff even if not version 1 but Tailwind was so promising. I even did created a library to make use of the idea of Tailwind for react-native. I do use this one on many of my client projects like Point, Fixit and Jiveworld.
I’m someone who loves to work and give his maximum but at the same time, I know how important is it to enjoy lifetime with my family, friends etc.
From what I saw from you online its look like you have the same mindset as me.
I’m also a quick learner, and when I’m passionate about something
I can’t stop looking and playing with it. I remember in one of your
Full stack radio episodes you mention you are
the same. Yes I'm a listener of your podcast for the past 2 years now and listen to all episodes.
I’m also someone who want to get more into open source. But the projects that I look at are
not something I want to get into. Tailwind was something I wanted to help in the past
but didn’t have the time at this moment because my clients of last year were all mobile and the brand new baby.
I think I can also help Adam on how to use Tailwind UI etc by doing livestream and tutorial using it.
I want to spread how it’s a joy working with it.
I am convinced that I am the person you need to grow your business.
P.S Yes this blog use Tailwind, didn't update it but that was pre v1 :)
