Justin's interest in web development began when he was working as an intern at The Dali Museum for the Innovation Labs department. This is where he found himself solving problems internally, using technology. One problem led to another and he eventually found himself maintaining HTML and CSS. Hungry for more, Justin quickly started attending Meetups where he fell in love with web development and the community around it. At this point, attending code school was the next logical step to launch this passion into a career.
All the time you invest learning development tooling, patterns, and technology has a 1:1 return on investment ratio which is hard to come by in many industries. You also aren't limited by anything besides your own time which is empowering. You know that you can build pretty much anything you can imagine as long as you are willing to put in the time.
Justin is currently working as a front-end developer at Gooee which is a large-scale company that builds analytics. Outside of work, he's bootstraping a startup called Hyve which is an email security and spam company. On top of all of that, he also volunteers for BarCamp on the side. He's helping them build an app to help attendees find talks they want to go to during the event.
